In other news, my Camp NaNoWriMo was somewhat of a failure and kind of not. I wrote 23,892 words out of a goal of 30,000. So I failed to make my goal but came very close to finishing. Can’t wait to see what I can do in July!

I continued #Musical Monday Reviews and will continue them into May. Sanctuary Edits is working with a second author already and still open for new clients. I also announced Guest Posts this month, but have not heard back from the one who contacted me yet. I am opening that spot up to anyone who would be interested, any topic you would like. Classes are going ok but I have just been out of it the last two weeks. I was really sick one day and haven’t caught up yet. Iit’s been a lazy, feel like “blah” last two weeks. I hope it gets better.

Let’s have a good May!

Sanctuary Edits

Have a book that needs editing? Want to make sure all the kinks are worked out before publication? Here at Sanctuary Edits, we will read through your book looking for any and all typos. We will double check to make sure everything sounds smooth and inform you of any issues spotted.

In addition to our editing services, we will also have an honest review ready for you upon publication. The review will be posted to Books and More, Twitter, Facebook, Goodreads, Google+, Tumblr and Amazon (or Smashwords depending on where you publish). We will also include an Author Spotlight Interview on the Books and More blog. We can also put together a release post highlighting your book the day it is released.

At Sanctuary Edits, we do Substantive Editing and Copy Editing. Substantive Editing is problem solving and overall clarity or accuracy.
Copy Editing, is where we look at spelling, grammar, punctuation and word usage. Prices are $50-100 per manuscript. Price varies depending on size. Short story would be less than an epic novel.

January #WrapUp

I think it’s been a wonderful month. I have accomplished a lot more than I thought I would have and can’t wait to see what February will bring. Here is a short list of how well I am keeping my New Year’s Resolution to blog more.

5 Author Spotlight Interviews

5 CLTBRCHALLANGE15 Book Reviews: Roots, Highland Blessings, Blockade Billy, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, and Earth Angel

1 Post to help a friend. Which by the way, if you read the post and sent a card or picture or whatever to the family Thank you!

Looking to the future, I expect more ASI’s and hopefully to read more books. The rest shall be a mystery. 🙂

Update on my friend Patrick McBroom

In my Original Post about Patrick McBroom, he had been sent home for hospice care and was wanting pictures for his walls. I was informed today, (1/26/15), that he has passed away. I would like to thank those of you who read and shared my post, and a special thanks to those who sent him a picture or a poster or words of encouragement. They meant a great deal to him and his family. Here is the link to his guest book if you would like to sign it and offer your condolences. Again thank you very much for your help.

A Little Help from Friends.

This is Patrick McBroom. He is 17 and has been battling two rare forms of cancer, since early childhood. One of the forms of cancer, is causing tumors to grow around the spinal chord and every so often he needs to go in and have them removed. This last trip they found an inoperable tumor and he has been sent home for hospice care. As he is no longer able to move around as much, his family is asking for pictures to decorate his room with. I am wanting to help get the word out so we can flood his room with pictures and good wishes to help keep him in good spirits. We’d love to invite anyone and everyone to join the fun. He loves KU, Starburst, and Yu Gi Oh. Don’t take pity on him. He’s still an ornery 17 year old boy with a great sense of humor. If you want to join the fun, here’s where to send your card…….
