New Year, New Job
There are plenty of nurses and teachers who would never consider a different career path, yet regularly ponder the merits of drinking-as-stress-relief. That said, doing something you love is a lot better than being stuck in a job that you hate.
Screaming customers in your office, bad coffee, a boss who withholds your pay, a miserable commute through sleet, tornadoes, and a spider avalanche while fending off drivers who no doubt fished their licenses out of a claw machine ... I needed a change, so I chose a job that I love. I'd like to introduce ALTO Editing Services, my answer to pretty much everything that ever bugged me about my other jobs.
Got a manuscript that needs the red pencil treatment? I'm here to help. Looking for someone to streamline your website homepage? Gimme a call. Want to feed my yarn habit? Send me your book!
I want my fellow writers to succeed just as much as I want to read all the things, so editing is right up my alley. I work from the Chicago Manual of Style (16th Edition), but I'm happy to adapt to your house style and other requirements. As a bonus, all works that I edit will be promoted on the ALTO Facebook page.
So, there you are. A new year, a new job. Will you share your new book with me?
