Jake Shuford for Beneath The Sand 29th Nov 2020
For review purposes:
Katherine Black of Best Book Editors is an amazing editor who I’ll definitely be asking for help in the future. She was kind, on time, and above all, knowledgeable on how things should work. 10/10 would highly recommend to anyone. Thanks so much again!
You’re amazing! I AM LOVING WHAT I’M READING THUS FAR. (Sorry I know you hate caps and parenthesis and exclamation marks) I’m on chapter three and agree with what you’re saying about the kids not acting their age and the parents not acting like parents. I’ve cleaned it up and it sounds much more realistic. (I hope). WIll work non stop until this is done. Like you, I’m a fast worker and plan to be done and ready to send back to you in a few days. I know this is earlier for you, but if you could get me in earlier than the 16th for half-price Second Pass, then that would be great. Totally understand if you are busy. Started book 3 for fun, so would love for you to read that too. (Way in the future, discuss later)
Have a great day,
Katherine Black / Susan (Sooz) Simpson
Founder of Best Book Editors
Katherine has held almost every single job imaginable, from painting gnomes to zookeeper. She spent most of her life in the caring profession and has managed both a nursing home and a care agency. But her passion for the written language always brings her home to novel writing.
Born in Tyne-and-Wear, North-East England, she has settled in the beautiful Lake District, Cumbria, with her partner, two dogs, a cat, an iguana and a python (just don’t ask her which of those six things is her favourite!).
She specialises in content creation and social media outreach, and has been a developmental editor for hundreds of clients. She owns and operates bestbookeditors.com where she helps foundling authors polish their skills. However, after being diagnosed with a dramatic brain condition in 2022, she has had to let 23 staff go, and scale back the business. BBE is still very much open, we are just fewer and can’t take as much work on.
Katherine Black is the author of psychological thriller/detective/fantasy adventure novels.
