If you have an editing job, I will be happy to edit up to 500 words for free so you can make an informed decision about whether to hire me. Also, I never charge anything until you and I have agreed on the job, the price, and the schedule—no surprise fees or invoices.

On a long wintery day (great for reading) I reread Bentley Dean’s “The First Born Crusade” which opens a projected series of science fiction novels. It’s a fascinating, fast-paced thriller about a near-future Earth that get’s embroiled in interplanetary war. Dean displays a talent for creating unique characters and situations, as Dean carries us through the Cosmos, and back to Earth. His characters and sci-fi devices are amazing real and compelling. This one is a page turner, and you won’t want it to end, which is why he’s busy writing the next one. It’s available at: https://www.amazon.com/First-Born-Crusade-Bentley-Dean/dp/0997821809/ref=sr_1_1
Angela Tebbs’s futuristic Young Adult novel: “Desert Inside the Wall.” It’s available as an e-book or paperback at https://www.desert-books.com/.
John W. Downs, an author imprisoned in Qatar who writes stories based in his home state of Arkansas. “Ackal Motors, Inc.” is a comical romance available at: https://www.amazon.com/Ackal-Motors-Inc-Adventures-Shade-Tree/dp/1519606036/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1489501609&sr=1-1&keywords=ackal+motors
Urmila Patel’s “Out of Uganda in 90 Days.” The inspiring story of her family’s flight from Idi Amin’s Uganda in the 1970s. http://www.amazon.com/Out-Uganda-Days-Urmila-Patel/dp/1500774294/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1411138988&sr=1-1&keywords=urmila+patel.
“I See Color” by Robert L. Pellegrino (http://www.amazon.com/See-Color-Identifying-Understanding-Perspective/dp/1515064336) is an excellent exploration of the issues of race in America. This book is primarily for whites who want to gain a better understanding of racism, but it will also interest any African American who wants a clearer picture of how racism affects the whole society.
“Spoiling Affluence” by James H. Klumpner http://www.lulu.com/shop/james-h-klumpner/spoiling-affluence-how-market-prosperity-limits-market-satisfactions/paperback/product-22856237.html. After a career of advising congressional committees, and teaching at Georgetown and Princeton, economist James Klumpner explodes one of the main myths of our times: that an economy must always grow bigger. In a tight, well-reasoned essay, Klumpner shows how this false expectation forces consumers and policymakers into increasingly irrational choices. His thesis explains a lot about the gap between political rhetoric and reality.
If you are working on a book, blog, or any other writing project, I hope to hear from you.
