The Water Road by JD Byrne

Hello, my readers!
Today I wanted to write about a book I recently worked on, called The Water Road by JD Byrne. First off, here is the cover art:

Isn't it stunning?

The novel could not be more interesting. It is the story of Antrey, a half-breed who isn't quite accepted by the people of her mother or those of her father. After she discovers the truth about how her father's race has been manipulating her mother's people for generations, she sets out to expose the truth and seek justice for the Neldathi. For those of you who love sinking into a really good, long book, this one is a great choice. The novel is over 130k words. Click here to read the blurb and purchase the novel from Amazon. 

JD Byrne blogs about The Water Road weekly on his blog. The blog posts are so interesting because they provide a deeper look into the mind of the author and how he developed the fantasy world in which the novel takes place. Check out the posts here. In his website, you can find see his Twitter activity, read more about his books and bio, and sign up for emails every time he releases new books. You get a free short story if you sign up, so take advantage! 

Happy reading!

Need your handwritten manuscript typed up?

Hello, readers! I have a very dear friend who types up handwritten manuscripts. I know I've had a few people ask about this service, which I can't offer personally anymore due to time constraints, but my friend Lauren Gardella is happy to help out with that. She is located within the continental US, which means shipping notebooks or journals to her can be done via ground shipping or media mail for very low prices. She is a college student trying to pay for her education, so she is very motivated to work. Ask her about rush jobs; she can get the document typed up faster for an extra fee. Feel free to contact her at

Celebrating 200 Years of Pride and Prejudice

Having worked on several Pride and Prejudice spinoffs by several authors, I thought my readers would get a kick off this tribute to the famous novel. Here is a link to a cartoonist's homage to the 200th anniversary of its publication. It's wonderfully done, with quotes from the actual novel.

The Puppet Curse

Hi guys! So I have a book planned out, and I had a tentative cover done for it.

I'm not sure about the title font and placement, so will have those modified by the cover artist. Have any feedback? Let me know what you think!

I have an official website!

I am thrilled to announce that I had an official website done. I hired the lovely Colleen Sheehan to design it for me in its entirety, as my efforts at creating a website from a template failed abysmally. She took less than 3 days to design everything, and I was so pleased with her work that I have also hired her to do a Facebook banner for my Facebook page and to create a logo for my editing business.
You can contact her here. She is actually also a book interior designer, and her work is amazing. Check out her full website here.
Would you like to check out my website? Click here!
And here is my Facebook page. It's very bare right now, but I will be adding a banner and picture soon. Like it so you get access to my posts, which will feature grammar tips, articles, and more!

schedule changes and rush editing

Hello, readers!
I want to update you on my schedule. Starting the second week of August, I will not be available on Tuesdays and Thursdays for two-day short stories. So if you have a deadline to meet, please send during a Monday so I can have the story back by Wednesday, or on Wednesday so I can have it back by Friday. I will work on Tuesdays and Thursdays if it is a MUST, but please be advised I'd rather not, as I'll be busy taking classes all day in college during those days.

Also, please remember that I charge an extra $100 for same-week rush editing on novels or novellas. I usually provide a two-week turnaround, maybe three to four weeks if the manuscript is over 80k words. Please take that into account so I can meet your deadlines. If you need something done rush, I will accommodate you, but it will cost extra.
