2 Books I Edited Are Up for Awards – LEXIE WORLD, and WANTED: DEAD OR UNDEAD

I recently announced that my novel, Forgive Me, Alex, is a semi-finalist in the Kindle Book Review’s Best Indie Books of 2012, in the Mystery/Thriller category.

Well, one of the nicest aspects of editing the work of fellow authors is being able to bask in the glow of their success, too. They did the heaviest lifting, of course, as authors always do, but as editor, I got to play my own small part.

One of the books for which I had the pleasure of doing the final edit/polish is also a semi-finalist, in the YA category: Wanted: Dead or Undead by Angela Scott.

And if that’s not enough, another of the books I edited, Lexie World by Kimberly Kinrade, is a finalist in the 2012 Global Ebook Awards, in the Children Literature Fiction category.

I have to say: All in all, I’m having a pretty good week.

    Just to be clear, and to give credit where credit is due: I did not edit WANTED: DEAD OR UNDEAD all by my lonesome. I co-edited with Melissa Sawatsky. My part was do the final pass & polish, focused mostly on the prose. 🙂

    Wheeeee! It’s an awesome time for Evolved Publishing. You, sir, are a bad@$$. You may now flex. We won’t even make fun of you today! Lucky.

      I really think this needs to be voted on before Dan can declare we won’t make fun of you. This seems extreme. Maybe… for just one day.

        Ah, geez! Give me one day off! 🙂

    Yahoo! So excited to see so many EP books up for awards. It’s an awesome time for sure! And yay for Lexie World. I just love those misguided Garbage Goblins. 😉 Thanks for all your hard work in editing. You really do make us all look great!

      You’re sweet. Thank you, darlin’.
