New editors needed

Crumbly Writer

My two newest editors have apparently jumped ship. One stated they aren't crazy about the subject matter of my newest book, and the other simply stopped responding.

As usual, the newest book is science fiction. The revision is completed and ready for editing. I'm primarily interested in proofreading, though I'll appreciate anything you can help with it. Since I tend to be wordy, I'm especially appreciative of flagging any text which is hard to read/understand.

This book is the sequel to my earlier "Stranded", entitled "The Lad Who Poked the Devil in the Eye". It's a little darker than normal, which is why the one editor bailed.

If anyone is interested, contact me and I'll supply more information.

On the one you lost contact with. Have you checked your junk mail folder?

I had that problem with my editor, I use a separate email account for SOL and I don't get a lot of junk on it, since I don't use it for anything else. I lost contact with my editor for a few months and then discovered that his replies were ending up in the junk folder.

One of my editors is always complaining about not having enough new stuff to read. He's good and quick, so I've just sent him an email with your email address, asking if he's interested in helping you out. I put you on it as a CC, so you should have a copy of it.

Expect an email from Gary, he likes your work and is interested in working with you.

Thanks, Ernest. I've contact him and sent him my basic 'intro' package. Since he's working on a sequel, he's planning to reread the first story again before diving in.

Oops. Got confused. I got both your recommended authors. (I was going by email rather than name when I responded earlier.) They've both been invited to join me.
