I ask of you, A recommendation

UPDATE:-Thank you for your recommendations ~ I have now found an editor to work with 

I quit
and then
I began writing again.
Better than just beginning to write.
I began writing a new novel
A Verse Novel
and I’m loving it!

But the reason for this post
Is to ask of you
A favour
A reference
A recommendation

I’m seeking an editor
A fiction editor
Who’s reasonably priced
And incredibly efficient
Ridiculously thorough
And sublimely wonderful to work with

I write YA Contemporary Realism
Please consider this as you mention your favourite

My hubby does not get verse that doesn’t rhyme
If you agree
And don’t get it either
Just ignore the line breaks


  1. I don't know too many editors off the top of my head, but I know of one blogger who does great critiques on her blog, and she also has a service.

    1. Thanks Medeia, I do love Carol's blog. xx

  2. I don't know of an editor who might fit the bill but I found mine through an online search. I think it depends on the genre and how deep is your pocket. Can't recommend the one I used - although not a bad job - but in any case I write a different genre.

  3. I see editor blogs all the time, but of course I can't think of one right now. I'll look through my blogroll and drop you a note.

  4. I've used two different editors. I don't know if either edits YA, but that's moot. The first isn't taking new editorial projects right now, and the second isn't inexpensive. She's even gone up since I used her, and I don't know if I will be able to afford her again. Good luck!

  5. I think Leigh T Moore might be someone you could talk to. I don't know what her rates are buy here's her blog address:

  6. I have no idea...but good luck and have fun in your search!!!

  7. I have a few possibilities. Email me at ciara(at)ciaraknight(dot)com and let me know what price range you are specifically looking for. I'd be happy to help if I can. You can read a sample on my blog from today's release. If you like it and she is in your price range I can give you her name.
    Happy Writing!

  8. Hmm, I know a few who are stateside. Do you want one from Down Under or do you care?

  9. I can't recommend an editor, but it's so brilliant you are writing again.

    Oh wait, and Carol is my CP, and she's great. So I guess I can recommend her. :)

  10. Wonderful that you're writing again! Unfortunately, I don't have an editor to recommend. Sorry!

  11. Good luck with the search. I don't know any I'm afraid.
    I enjoy modern poetry. It's the old fashioned romantic stuff that baffles me usually!


I love comments....
