I normally do not do this, showcasing literary editing. Literary editors are plentiful. A quick search from any of the search engines will definitely confirm this assertion. What most writers do when they’re desperate for an editor is that they draw a list of editors, taking from Google, and they start calling for the right one—meaning finding an editor with an acute sense of creativity, the second set of eyes and the heart to write an honest contract that would fit an emerging writer’s budget.
It sounds perfectly all right, but it doesn’t always happen this way. Most people will impress you with a pre-written document and try to coax you into entering an agreement. Sincerely, you sign on, make an installment and wait, patiently waiting. A few weeks later, you feel nothing but apprehension. You have been duped, swindled!
However, in your Google search, you may find Ghost Writer, Inc. This one is different, as I can assure any reader of CSMS Magazine. I’m so certain because I know its Executive Director, Karen Cole. We’ve worked on several projects before. Karen is a friend. She is honest, punchy—what every writer looks for—and her company is reasonable. Ghost Writer, Inc. has been in the business for over 10 years, and Karen is well versed in Caribbean and other forms of fiction. Karen was the editor of my critically acclaimed book, “Alicia Maldonado: A Mother Lost”—published in 2005. By the way, this story is being made into a screenplay for an upcoming movie.
Within her ghost writing company, Karen writes and edits for authors of books and screenplays who have a compelling story to tell but lack the creativity to turn it into a gut wrenching novel or other work. She also runs a team of 100+ other writers, editors, marketers and promoters. To reach Ghost Writer, Inc., follow this link: www.rainbowriting.com .
