Guys! BIG NEWS! My manuscript is in the hands of my wonderful editor, Cecily Tartaglione of Red Pen Editor. I’m SO excited to be working with Cecily. She’s kind, smart, and has a terrific eye for editing, while still maintaining the author’s voice. In my next post, I’ll talk about the process of choosing an editor, but today, let’s get to know Cecily! Quick! Tell us four facts about you: I’m actually an old cat lady who can rarely stay up past midnight.
In March, I posted a feature on Rowan, and I am SO EXCITED to let you guys know her high fantasy novel is now available for purchase! Okay, deep breaths Alison, first things first. Here is the official summary: When she was twelve, Irilith Inimica’s brother told her to run; not from the dragons and beasts he’d warned her of her whole life, but from him. Soon after he caught up with her, she discovered exactly why.
Today’s book review is another indie read: The Savior’s Champion by Jenna Moreci. Jenna is a popular Youtuber in the writing community, shelling out writing advice with a healthy dose of humor and sarcasm. My kinda girl. The Savior’s Champion was released a couple months ago, and I was super excited to read it, having devoured the first few chapters before it was released. Here’s the official summary: Tobias Kaya doesn’t care about The Savior.
I was tagged by my friend Nancy in a fun tag involving searching for three specific words in my current novel. One of my favourite Twitter Hashtag games is #WIPWordSearch, so I am all for doing this tag! Check out Nancy’s post here. Rules: Find the words you’re given in your WIP. Then share the context containing the word. Next, tag people and give them 3 new words. The words Nancy gave me are: SILENCE, TIME, and LIGHT.
Hello lovely readers! I haven’t written a book update in a while, so here we go! Currently, I am in the (what feels like) never-ending editing process. I have printed copy of my book for a paper edit, which has been overly exciting! Firstly, to actually hold my book is an amazing feeling! And secondly, because I love stationery so there are tabs, Post-its, and highlighting everywhere! I much prefer editing on paper, but this is a rare treat because of the length of the book and my desire to save trees.
