A very busy and incredibly enjoyable month with such a wide variety of novels in several different versions of English and a wide selection of genres. I’m so lucky to be working with such lovely authors.
The end of February/beginning of March saw me working on the first novel in the new The Secret Fear series featuring DI Hogarth and set in Southend, written by Solomon Carter.
Next up was the twelfth in John Carson’s Di Miller series, Time of Death, followed by Secrets and Vengeful, the first and second novels in Sharon M. Thompson’s Australian revenge thriller series.
I then worked on an – as yet unpublished – autobiographical story of a young boy growing up in South Africa in the days of apartheid followed by Michelle Vernal’s beautiful tale, The Promise, a beautifully written story of romance and relationships across the generations in the Isle of Wight.
A sexually charged tale of life in the high-octane world of finance in the City, a sci-fi novel with a modern-day theme, and the second in the DI Hogarth series by Solomon Carter, The Secret Dawn completed the month.
April is just as busy with a line-up of detective stories, revenge thrillers, romance, sci-fi, and even a non-fiction work to keep me out of mischief.
Many thanks to all the wonderful authors I work with for making my work such a pleasure.
For the second time in recent months, I’ve received four manuscripts in the space of one week – one scheduled, one anticipated, and two completely out of the blue! A fifth manuscript is due to reach me on 3rd March.
I love being busy and have had a thoroughly enjoyable night working on Moira Lisa Smile, the second in the charming Guesthouse on the Green series by Michelle Vernal. The first in the series, O’Mara’s was completed earlier this week.
Next up is the first novel in the second series featuring DI Hogarth, by Solomon Carter. DI Hogarth featured as the protagonist in The Darkest series published in spring 2018 after first appearing in the Eva and Dan Private Investigator novels.
Green Door by Tony Harmsworth is scheduled for next week and will provide an interesting change of genre for me as it’s a couple of years since I had any sci-fi novels to edit.
That should take care of February, and the latest in John Carson’s great DI Frank Miller series, Time of Death, will be with me in early March, ready for publication on 14th.
A quick but emotional read - reading about the cruelty to the dog was heartbreaking but this was a lovely tale of the love and healing that animals can bring to our lives.
I would have given five stars but for the missed typos - a few t...
I get the impression that this could be a nice story but I've had to give up after forcing myself to go as far as 15% of the way through. If this novel has ever been near a remotely professional editor then the author was conned.
Another very enjoyable story but with a few niggles, hence the four stars rather than five. Maybe it's because I was tired but the editing issues grated on me more than in the first story and, do people really generally believe that 'ear...
