Editors, Readers, and Writers

Editing, writing, ghostwriting, design and formatting is very satisfying … watching someone else’s piece grow, evolve, and reveal the talents, skills, and feelings of other writers brings a silent joy to an editor’s heart. Watching another writer learn and accept the various truths of this challenging industry, their confidence growing and expanding with every verb tense that finally falls into place or the beauty of a crisp, new book … their own.

Few achievements can surpass the excitement of reading or seeing your own words in print, knowing you’ve given your all and have shared your uniqueness with the world. Editors help others spread the knowledge of their expertise, give the gift of drama, and the balm of fiction.

Reading is universal, mind-expanding, calming, exciting and just plain fun. I love a book that’s been researched well. I want the story, the plot, the fiction, but give me something new to experience, learn, digest. When I read I want to be challenged, intrigued, surprised!

Writers are Readers, and Readers are Writers

Editors are all of the above …

The Sky is the Limit!


The sky is the limit if you but believe in yourself.

We write many books to collect dust on the shelf.

We want to attract readers, but competition is tough.

Finding the right promo can really be rough.

I see my dear friends, writers all, searching social media

To put out the word, reach for the sky, and tension relieve.

But I know we all would still write, even if nobody reads,

And put as much wordsmithing, editing, and proofreads

In every book, every blog, every post, every review

That we write for other authors to encourage and renew

Our humble opinions or assistance in a close-knit kinship.
