I write, I read, I teach, I edit. Says it all, really.
I AM CURRENTLY OPEN TO SHORT EDITING AND COPYEDITING JOBS, anything under 60,000 words.
I have edited these books:
I have consulted on or proofread these books:
(The above is not a comprehensive list, just an illustration.)
At this point in time I am not holding any special deals. I will take on editing jobs, 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
At this point, everything through the end of 2020 has been cancelled, and 2021 remains to be seen.
Trying to find lighter, more amusing work. I welcome recommendations.
CURRENTLY WRITING / NEWS
My writing vacation is over. I have begun swinging at the keyboard by editing long-held projects for release into the wild.
I am SUPER EXCITED to announce that I’ve finished the edits for Servants of the Sands, which will be reissued as two books, and it’s been returned to my publisher. I’ll let you know as soon as I get word on the re-release schedule. I’m hoping for a March release… we’ll see.
I’m also bringing the first book of the followup series, (working title: Kingdom of Salt) back to life, prodding and poking at it and coming up with new and better plot twists.
I have notes and sketches for a lot of short pieces that I would like to flesh out and submit. I have a couple stories slogging around through various publications, so wish me luck! I intend to get at least a couple new things out, self published or professionally, in 2020.
Update as of 8/23/20: One short story has made it to the second round of readers at a large publication, so that’s really encouraging! (as of 12/15/20, I still hadn’t heard back on this, so…. a bit nervous, but hopeful!)
…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!
