My #editor (aka my mom, at booksbyliz.com), hasn’t even had my book for 24 hours yet and I’m already sweating bullets. I know I have a lot of those dreaded -ly words (adverbs–the most hated of all descriptive words in the writing biz), and I worry about the whole show-vs-tell thing (though I think I’ve worked on most of that, or at least what I found of it in my revisions).
I know that yes, my mom may be a tad biased, but she’s also a good editor, and she’ll tell me what’s what. I’m not afraid of the red marks…I’m just ready for the next round of revision. Bring it on, Mom!
Just so y’all know, my mom also offers #ghostwriting services, and she does an excellent job of that as well. I’m not just saying that because I’m biased–I’ve seen her write successfully in a variety of genres.
