I do not know how to introduce myself. There, I wrote it. I can chat, yak, gab, and ramble…boy can I ramble. However, I don’t know how to write a proper introduction or bio. How’s that for a content editor, LOL.
Okay, there’s my first bit, I am a content editor for MuseItUp Publishing. I’ve known Lea since the first Muse Online Writers’ Conference and have followed her guidance. She prompted me to my own review site (oh yeah, I’m a book reviewer, too) and when she was looking for editors, well, I said sure. Not that it was that easy. No, all of us editors are thoroughly tested. Like with all my writing, I finished the test using a little common sense, some long ago grammar memories, but mostly my gut reaction. Being a book addict and reviewer helped.
I’ll leave it to my authors to say whether or not this works.
My first book, a short, will be published this summer. Yes, by MuseItUp. We will publish our editors, but they must past the submission readings first…just like every submission. Talk about nervous nerves. It was one thing to think—will they like it—but then I had a flash of—OMG, WILL they like it. We’re not a pushover bunch.
So, what do I read and write? Almost anything. Like with reviewing, I don’t particularly mix with the romance genre. I’m a give me scares, thrills, gore, new worlds, aliens, living robots, burning stars, new creatures, magic, mystery, mayhem, murder, and everything else kinda gal. If romance is mixed in, I can handle it.
Guess what my first book is…a romance. Lea had posed a question and I said—sure, I’ll give it a go. MIDNIGHT FIND is the result. Simply put, it’s about jilted promises and unusual endings.
Maybe even a little bit of go-for-it attitude. Something all writers need. Writers take me on journeys I never would dream finding.
I edit because I love your words and worlds.
I write because words are my voice.
