Year end summary and scheduling for 2018

I am in the process of planning my diary and availability for next year, so this is a call for provisional bookings, to try and pre-empt which months you will need and avoid you waiting in a three-four month queue for me to start.

This is to allow me time to work on my own novel and other projects (I do four-six books a month at the present time, be it a first/last read through, or the actual edit).

Developmental Editing of Fiction for Beginners – via the Editorial Freelancers Association (EFA)

Owing to the fact I like to do things backwards, three years after starting developmental editing, I have signed up to do a course with the Editorial Freelancers Associations to find out how to be a developmental editor. 😁 I know I could probably start with the immediate level (and then do the advanced one), but I figured it wouldn’t harm to go back to the basics. I’ve never had any training for developmental editing, although I have a good working knowledge of story structure and writing techniques, and I certainly know what I like as a reader and...
