Okay, I probably shouldn't be so excited since I'm the one hiring
an editor. It's not as if I found an agent (do we actually have any in Malaysia?) or signed a book deal (long way more to go).
But well, I realised a while back that an old college friend of mine has struck out on her own as a freelance writer, editor and translator and it took me about... a month (or more... yes I am that indecisive and slow and lazy) to decide that YES, I want to do this. I'm going to hire someone to make sure my words are all sparkly and pretty!
Meet the awesome Chin Pei Ling from Word Espress
Pei Ling has been writing for as long as she can remember. The SMS was never made for her, because her text messages to friends are always long. Mostly because she has too much to say (and she has a strange liking of typing every word fully). From overwriting in her school essays to graduating with a Journalism Diploma and B.A. in English, with over six years of experience in journalism and publishing, you can say that she's where she's always wanted to be. And you can enrich her journey even more.
Okay. Back to making sure my manuscript does not SUCK SO BAD before she sets her eyes on it. :)
Congratulations, Anna, looking forward to your book!ReplyDelete

Thanks Sharon, Damyanti and Patricia!ReplyDelete
I've been silent for a while - editing! haha :)
Just sent off the completed thing to my editor and just... double guessing and doubting myself right now.
