Who Is This WB, and Why Do I Want Her To Read My Book?

I am thrilled to announce this partnership. Tory is such an amazing person and has such a wonderful soul. I am very happy to work with her on all of your projects. With eager eyes, we will go through your words and help them sing.

A lot of you know I authored Blood Drops, but other than that, you may not know much about me or why you might want me to proofread your work and discuss editorial points with Tory.

Well…

I am a sucker for a beautifully composed sentence. I always have been. My love started young with good books and well-written dialog in movies. As I’ve aged, this hasn’t changed, and I’ve made it a point to learn and study the English language. I majored in journalism in college while I took electives like English Literature and Shakespeare; I’ve read truckloads of books and watched movies with dialog I enjoy on an obsessive level; I listen to audiobooks and lectures on grammar and writing for fun….basically, what I’m trying to say is that it’s never been a chore for me to interact with words – it’s a way I enjoy passing my time.

What does that mean for you? That means I have read countless combinations of words and phrases, that I have a keen eye for something out of place, but also that I recognize the music that flows with a story because it’s something I have always had a connection with. Sometimes, moving one sentence to another location changes the way the paragraph sits with the reader, or a small change of phrase can make a scene bloom and touch the heart. I am not only going to mark your grammar and spelling errors, but I am also going to incorporate suggestions to make sure each page, each paragraph, each word carries the beat you’re trying to set.

I look forward to interacting with each and every one of your sentences, and I hope you appreciate the love I have to give to your work. Tory and I look forward to helping you polish your masterpiece.

 

With love,

WB
