I write, I read, I edit. I’m pretty good at all three.


I AM CURRENTLY OPEN TO EXTRA SHORT EDITING JOBS, anything under 5,000 words.

At this point in time I am not holding any special deals. I have two editing jobs on my desk already and I’m waiting on my own work to come back from my editor. I will take on one more editing job, but it will be at regular rates, which are based on EFA suggested numbers.

Take a look at my client testimonials. Standard rate and procedure information is on the same page, further down. Contact me about editing jobs at editor at leonawisoker dot com.


UPCOMING EVENTS TO WATCH

Most conventions listed, I’ll be attending as a vendor with The Scribbling Lion, so look for me in the dealer’s room!

Everything through June has been canceled. I’m bummed! But it means I have more incentive to get back to actually writing, so….

CURRENTLY READING

The Dark is Rising series by Susan Cooper. Oh my GOD it is a brilliant series.

CURRENTLY WRITING

My writing vacation is over. I have begun swinging at the keyboard by editing long-held projects for release into the wild.

Currently on the top of the stack is an add-on chapter for Servants of the Sands, since I’ve never really been satisfied about where I ended that book. Hopefully I’ll be able to release that for free to anyone interested by the end of July. Update as of 4/14: This project is in the hands of my editor.

I’m also bringing the first book of the followup series back to life, prodding and poking at it and coming up with new and better plot twists. Update as of 4/14: The introductory sequence is in my editor’s hands. It was intended as a prologue. But it’s so long and with its own internal arc… I’m thinking about releasing it as a stand alone / in-between story.

I have notes and sketches for a lot of short pieces that I would like to flesh out and submit. I intend to get at least a couple new things out, self published or professionally, in 2020.

…Hey, have you signed up for The Irregular Update yet? I talk about books, mostly, and book related stuff. No politics in the newsletter any more, I promise! Well. Unless you count political books and genre-related news… but I keep that to a minimum. The form is to the right….

Read on, & stay safe out there!
