Sincerest Apologies

Hello, all!
Let me apologize for not posting on this blog recently. There have been medical issues with two members of my family that started already last fall and dealing with those issues (including hospitalization in both cases) has taken time away from some of the extra things in my life that I need to do, like blogging.

(Not to worry, all client work continues to be completed on time.)

Now that we are firmly entrenched in the new year, I hope you're all tackling those WiPs and have made the decision that 2014 is going to be *your* year!

If you are considering having your work professionally edited or proofread, please be aware that I'm currently booking for June.

Is it spring where you are? We still have piles of snow that are taking their own sweet time to melt! Ah, well. Spring will arrive sooner or later, right?

Turkey Coma And All

I hope everyone has had a wonderful holiday so far! I also hope you've allowed yourself a bit of a break from writing. Every now and then it's a good idea to take a small hiatus to allow your creative well to refill and allow you to go back to your project recharged and refreshed, and ready to keep on rollin'! (Just make sure that break of yours doesn't last longer than a few days!)

I'll be back before long to wish you all a Happy New Year, but in these days before the turning of the calendar I hope you'll take a few minutes to look back on this year and enjoy your successes and take lessons away from the mistakes. After you've done that, look forward. Right now 2014 is wide open and full of possibility. What will *you* do with this time? Is this the year you write that book? Is this the year you step up your game? Only you can know for certain, and it's all about your conviction and determination. But I know you can do it!

Rate Increases...And A Deal!

Greetings, all!
I hope your holiday preparations are going along swimmingly and you're looking forward to spending some quality time with your family and friends over the next few weeks.

While you're nibbling on gingerbread men and sipping eggnog, however, I hope you'll think ahead to the New Year and to creating new goals. What do you want to accomplish next year?

From my end of things, business will continue as usual, but thanks to inflation and the rising cost of living, 2014 will usher in a small rate increase for my services, and that information will be posted at the beginning of January. From the beginning I have tried to keep my rates reasonable, and have not changed the prices for my services since starting this business.

If this news is distressing to you, please don't worry -- because I have a deal for you!

If you are considering contracting editing services in the New Year, listen to this: If you sign a work agreement with me and pay the deposit prior to December 31, 2013, you can book your project with me anytime during 2014 and pay 2013 prices!

If you have any questions or comments about this deal, or are interested in taking advantage of it, please don't hesitate to send me an email and I'll be happy to discuss it with you.

In the meantime, Happy Holidays, and all the best to you and yours for 2014!

Anthology Now Available!

I'm thrilled to announce the release of a new anthology that I had the privilege of helping to create and edit.

Here's the blurb:

2003 Hardin Way

Situated in Atlanta, Georgia, it's an address like no other. Whispered discreetly between co-workers, e-mailed between friends, found online by the most frightened searcher, it isn't just a building constructed of bricks and mortar.

It represents hope.

For women traumatized by abuse, harassed by others, or merely looking for an escape, this apartment building provides solace, sanctuary and safety for those in desperate need. Living here, women find strength, courage and -- perhaps most importantly -- the ability to love once again.

Hardin Way -- where hearts heal.

If you're interested in checking it out, it's available on Smashwords as well as Amazon. I hope you enjoy some excellent stories from some very talented authors! I also hope that if you do read the book, that you'll leave a review somewhere. I know the authors would appreciate it.
