“Tell Me When It Hurts” https://www.amazon.com/Tell-When-Hurts-Christine-Whitehead/dp/0982294603

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.
Thanks,
Pete

For some people this is a confusing, and even chilling time. Many Americans feel that their right to express themselves freely is in danger. In a nation that has always promoted religious freedom some find that their faith has become a political issue. Others are discovering that expressing their ideas has become unacceptable, and even dangerous. Some in elective office are discouraging opponents, hinting that all opposition is disloyal. Nothing could be further from the truth.

America began with the idea that if you truly believe something, you should say so without fear of legal restrictions or penalties. Our founders knew that honesty in word and action is essential to a free republic. Dissent, and the free exchange of different viewpoints are normal, healthy activities that are necessary in any real democracy.

You don’t need an editor or ghostwriter to know what you really think. All you need is your own free mind. The most important guideline any editor has is the First Amendment. We will help anyone who hires us to clearly express their thoughts in writing. Our only taboos are hatred, terror and blind intolerance. We will always exercise our freedom to reject oppression.

Tell Me When It Hurts

We’ve edited three fine novels by Christine M. Whitehead. One of them, a witty and compelling mystery titled: “The Rage of Plum Blossoms,” has just been selected by the board at Kindle for publication in their Kindle Scout program. Most likely it will be published in October. We’ll keep you up-to-date on its progress. The novel has some shared history with Christine’s first mystery, “Tell Me When It Hurts,” available through Amazon at: http://www.amazon.com/Tell-Me-When-It-Hurts/dp/0982294603.

Have you written a book? Are you serious about making it better? Are you willing to hire a professional to critique, or possibly revise your words, so your points are more clear and compelling to your readers? If this is something you would like to explore, please contact me.

More authors are using freelance editors than ever before. Today’s publishing houses employ fewer and fewer editors of their own. Those overworked editors turn down most of the books they read, and when they decide to publish a book, they seldom ask for changes. More and more publishers insist that a book be ready for publication when it arrives in their mailbox. They have to do this to compete. Also, far more writers are having success with self-publishing. Most of these successful authors have hired freelance editors to help them shape and improve their work. It’s the one thing that hasn’t changed: Every book needs an editor.

There are several things you should not expect of an editor. An editor is not your literary agent, nor is he or she your business partner, investing time and work for future profits. An editor is not your minister, priest or rabbi. When hiring an editor, you are not automatically getting a lifelong friend who will help you through personal problems and emotional upsets. If you feel you need an editor who provides these things, I wish you luck, but I also urge you to look elsewhere.

An editor (or ghostwriter, if that’s what you need) is a paid professional who is dedicated to the job of telling your story effectively. An editor should be friendly, sympathetic, honest, and flexible, yet firm. If I work for you, I will make every effort to help you convey your ideas to your readers. If your material is of a passionate nature, I will be sensitive to that, but we should not allow unchecked emotion to harm communication. If expressing your ideas more clearly also makes them more marketable, that’s fine, but I won't sell your work for you. Editors and ghostwriters do not take credit. Your book, article, or story is your idea, your responsibility, and all credit goes to you. You own whatever work I do for you. I don’t share in the profits. We work out a fee for my services, and you pay me as I do the work.

You come to me when you want to make your written thoughts as clear and compelling as possible. I’m an experienced editor and ghostwriter. I love working with words. I’ve written, edited and published fiction and nonfiction of all kinds for newspapers, magazines, journals, and book publishers. My own stories and articles have appeared in places as diverse as Twilight Zone Magazine, Playgirl, and The Washington Post.

Let’s explore the possibilities. If you have a well-thought-out idea for a book, but you want it professionally edited or ghostwritten, I can help. When people start thinking about editing and ghostwriting they usually have a lot of questions. If you want to know more about any of this, call me—Pete—at 410-433-0908. I’ll tell you what I know, and if we wind up working together, I’ll probably learn from you. After all, you probably know your subject at least as well as I know writing.

I cannot guarantee your book’s success, but I can improve its chances. If you would like to learn more about ghostwriting, call or email me with your questions. If you want a free sample of editing, send a short excerpt from your writing. I’ll edit 500 words for free. If you tell me the length of the whole manuscript, I can give you options and prices. If you like what you see, we can talk business. I hope to hear from you.
