“I have now self-published thirteen novels which are available at Amazon. I’ve had many people ask me about the whole self-publishing process, the dos and don’ts, etc. And I tell them there is only one huge mistake I made with my first couple of books—I didn’t hire a professional editor to review them before publication.

I mistakenly believed that friends and family members had caught all the typos, plot errors, etc. I was wrong. And you can only make a good first impression on readers once. You can’t say later, oh, sorry about the editing errors. So if you have a manuscript that you want to self-publish, you need to do it right. And that means finding an established, professional editor.
I was fortunate enough to meet and start working with Shelley Holloway over ten years ago, and all I can say is that I wish I’d known her from the start. But as the saying goes, hindsight is 20/20. Shelley and I have now worked together on all my books—including a romance published under a pen name.

I have recently published the first two installments of another fictional espionage series, The Liquid Solution and Cascade of Betrayals. As I write each new book in this series, I take comfort in knowing Shelley will be there to edit the manuscripts as well as format them for Kindle and paperback publication.

She is a one-stop shop that I have relied on for years, and I hope she never retires. She has been a godsend.”
