. . . Sharon Ball’s blog A Break from the Norm. Sharon’s a client who finaled in this year’s Genesis contest (Go, Sharon!), and she recently asked me some great questions about working with a freelance editor. If you’d like some professional help on your manuscript, I think you’ll enjoy the interview.

Did I already tell you all that I’ll be offering these critiques from time to time? My goal is to do one a month, at least. We’ll see how that fits into my schedule. Sometimes the I-can-do-this side of my brain goes into hyperdrive and needs an all-nighter to get recalibrated.
The winner is — Bonnie.
Bonnie, I’ll send you an email with the formatting for the ten pages.
Thanks for throwing your name in the hat, everyone. I always hate that only one person can win. Maybe next time I’ll have two winners. (See? That side of my brain is heading for the cliff.) Regardless, let’s do it again soon.

Affordable Novel Critique Service has been updated — new services, new referral program.
January 15, 2008
If you haven’t guessed it, I’m doing a bit of a blog tour these days for Affordable Novel Critique Service. Some writer friends are hosting me on their blogs, and we’re talking about working with freelance editors and preparing for upcoming writing contests.
In case you didn’t know, I’ve run an editing service for the past year. It’s been a lot of fun helping writers perfect their work. I’ve recently updated my webpage to list the services I offer:
- Query critique
- Synopsis critique
- Proposal critique
- Mentoring critique for new writers
- Manuscript critique
- Substantive edit
What are my credentials?
I’ve worked for two Christian publishers and have done everything from writing sales materials to proofreading and editing fiction and sorting through the slush pile. I’m a member of the Christian PEN (Proofreaders and Editors Network) and a member of the Christian Editor Network. My goal with ANCS has been to provide excellent editing services with a teaching style and combine that with an affordable price.
And I think I’ve done that. If you’re a writer interested in working with someone to grow as a writer, please contact me. I’d love to help.

So far this morning I’ve replayed last night’s Extreme Makeover Home Edition, shed a few more tears in the watching, and chatted with Georgiana on her blog.
Now I’m off to do some editing and then errands. Hope you all are having a great day.

I’m guestblogging at Linda Fulkerson’s Fiction Fundamentals where we’re busting a few editing myths.
