I just sent the first story of the Grendel Uprising series to one of my favorite editors, Samantha LaFantasie. She does very thorough work and does it without delay. As always, I am a bit nervous to see what a professional editor has to say. There will be a lot of needed corrections, I am sure. Some of it will likely be grammar. Some will be story logic or consistency issues. It still amazes me that I can go over a manuscript again and again and again and then some more, review what beta readers found, and finish revisions only to have the editor find things that need fixing.
I learned the hard way that paying a qualified editor is worth every penny. Each story in the Grendel Uprising series will be professionally edited, and when I combine them into omnibus editions, there will be one final round with the pros. This may seem like a great expense, but it isn't so bad spread out over time.
Proof of Death will be available on Amazon as a digital book by the end of June if not sooner. I really hope you like it.
Life is an adventure. I read to expand my horizons and write because I must.
