Editing, or as authors call it, “How the hell did I miss that?!”
Editing is not our favorite task. In fact, we’d probably be safe to say that few authors truly enjoy it.
We might even say that we’ve been putting off this blog about editing because we dislike it that much.
Think of it this way: You’ve had all this fun writing your novel, and by the time it’s done, you’re probably pretty proud of it! Tears were shed; perhaps some sweat, too. If you’re a real hardcore author, there may have even been some blood (but hopefully not – paper cuts are painful!).
Yet, no matter how much time and effort you’ve dedicated to your sci-fi series, mystery novel, or even a memoir, there are bound to be a few – in fact, probably more than a few – errors throughout.
Welcome to Stingray City in Antigua! One of the places on this earth where the people are as friendly as the stingrays. That is, if you have squid to feed the stingrays! Local reports say that the island is beautiful, the people are really nice, and that the sun shines almost all of the time - not surprising for an island in the West Indies.
We all have one shot at this crazy life we are given, and we all seek enlightenment every day. “Carpe diem” comes to mind. We encourage you to write that book, take that long overdue vacation, take the kids to Disney, and live your life as you want to.
These honeymooners seem to be doing a really good job of just that.
We will be featured on Fussy Liberian this Saturday. Check out their awesome book deals and read on, friends!
Are you ready for Computer Love Inc.: III Blood Brothers?! We have been reviewing the final copy and we’ve made a few last-minute tweaks. We expect to release it any day now, so stay tuned for updates!
We are so excited about our interview with Rocco this weekend. It is not often that we are interviewed by such a prominent celebrity, furry or otherwise. We want to thank national bestseller, Toni LoTempio, for the opportunity, and if you like cozy mysteries, be sure to check out her Nick and Nora series!
For the fussy readers out there (and let’s face it, we can all get a little “fussy” when it comes to choosing the next title to put on our to-read lists), you can also check us out on Fussy Librarian this weekend. We want to thank the Head Librarian for the opportunity to be fea...
We are in the final editing stages for Computer Love Inc. III and we are both so excited about the upcoming book release. Living through our characters is more fun than a barrel full of robots, and Jess and I have enjoyed every moment that we've spent writing this book. Our series will be featured on Fussy Librarian as well as Rocco’s blog next month and we have a free book giveaway on the horizon as well. Stay tuned for upcoming events, and be sure to check out our Computer Love Inc. Facebook page or twitter for quotes and giveaway contests.
How many chews could a Pickachu chew if a Pickachu could chew a Pickachu?
Gesundheit for reading that title! (Get it? Pik… achoo!)
If you’re like many of our readers (or, ahem… Jess), you may be suffering from Pokemon Go fever. If you’ve found yourself dreaming of Squirtles, Wartotles, or even a Blastoise, you know what we mean. Perhaps your Jigglypuff is now a coveted Wigglypuff. Maybe you’ve captured enough Charmander candy to evolve yours into a Charmeleon. Have you been MIA recently, walking or driving around in pursuit of the closest Poke Stop or gym?
For starters, we’d like to commend you on staying away from the game for this long and reading something other than the latest Google results for “Poke Stops near me” or “Pokemon Go Tips.” Yes, reading – remember that? The act...
All vacations must come to an end, as ours recently did. “Vacation head” is a rather difficult state of mind to rid oneself of, but I believe that we have been able to extract most of our thoughts and begrudgingly make our way back into reality. Somewhat. That is, as far as science fiction writers’ version of reality goes.
As science fiction writers, we have robot companions to build, conundrums to create, and planets to destroy. We can’t be lollygagging around on sandy beaches and floating along the ocean waves all day long! Although, they do have a way about them, you know. Currently, and honestly, we are back at work finishing up our third science fiction novel, Computer Love Inc. III: Blood Brothers, and we are both enjoying it so much. We’ll keep you all posted on our pro...
