Between the Sheets takes readers to a place only a published author has lived. One’s book is written. The long days and nights of labor to put on paper the story rattling in one’s mind reaches that place sought after, but many times believed unreachable: the end. One may think the hard work is now over, but rather the most important, and many times most difficult point, has been reached: the time for editing, rewrites, more editing and more rewrites until a polished piece of work ready for publication is achieved.
With insights, excellent editing advice, humor, and a healthy dose of reality, Thomas T. Thomas and Kate Campbell share their four-month journey, mainly via e-mails exchanged. The bring readers into their process, filled with times of frustration combated with encouragement and progress.
“Tom graciously agreed to take on the editing project, and during an intense four-month period, we worked on the final editing of Adrift in the Sound.”
Author and editor brainstorm together to get the written word into its strongest rendition while staying true to the voice of the author. This reviewer enjoyed being privy to this interaction, learning much in the process that will help strengthen my own writing.
