IWSG: One down and ? to go

Hi, all, it’s Sher here with a bit of good news. I found help, another book lover who happens to be an editor. Krista Sennett agreed to review books and joined my blog a couple of weeks ago. She wrote an introductory post and I’ve been training her in person. That’s right, in person. She’s local, and you’ll never guess where I found her.

We interrupt this program for a message from our sponsor, Ninja Alex J Cavanaugh of the Insecure Writers Support Group.

Now back to our regularly scheduled post.

Where did I find Krista? In the grocery store!
Okay, I admit I’ve shopped for books in a grocery store, but who finds an editor in the bakery department? It’s almost like having a birthday.  Or having a cake and eating it too. That saying never made sense to me because they forgot to specify that it means you can’t have the cake after eating it.  Guess what? You really do have the cake after eating it. Most of it turns to fat. But kidding aside, do feel like I had an extra birthday.  Krista is taking part of my wordload (spp), I mean my workload. If not for other extra chores like getting ready to sell our rental house, I’d be almost caught up. With those extra chores, I’m not collapsing under the weight of all the (ahem) crap that’s happened this year. I’m slowly climbing out of it.
Isn’t it awesome to find help where you least expect it? Not to mention when.
I’m so happy our IWSG Guide to Publishing and Beyond is out. That’s another great help for writers. Have you got your copy yet?

  1. Can’t wait to read my copy of the book!

  2. Yup, finding help that way is totally awesome! Good for you.

    Followed you via your Facebook page. Great to meet you through IWSG.

  3. Glad you got some more help. Seems like you’re pretty swamped.

    I downloaded the IWSG, but not from Amazon. They’re still charging $0.99 for it. 🙁

  4. That’s cool you met her at the grocery store!
    Thanks for promoting the book. We are so excited about it.
