A Short Update

Hopefully, the podcast feed will be updated to iTunes by this time tomorrow. Once that is done, I’ll be uploading all the episodes here.

Also, I’ll be catching up on posting some of the projects I’ve worked on that have found their way to Amazon. If you just looked at the list here, you’d think I haven’t done anything since the site was started! I assure you, that is not the case!

Coming out of hibernation.

It has been some time since I’ve posted here. My Fiverr account got incredibly busy and I was unable to keep up with anything else for months. There have also been changes at the day job that have kept me from being as engaged as I would like. Of course, if you follow me on twitter (@gingermaneditor) you know I’ve been engaging there a lot.

I’ve also started doing podcasts, running two and contributing to two others. For the purposes of this post, I want to mention Coffee, Books, Repeat. This podcasts is dedicated to promoting authors, their work, and discussing the writing process.

Episodes will be uploaded here in the new future.

The website will be getting some improvements here as well, with more reviews getting uploaded as they are available, and fresh links to books that I have worked on. There are a lot of things going on behind the scenes and Gingerman Editorial 2.0 is getting off the ground.

Busy, Busy, Busy

Holy shazbot, business has definitely picked up in the last couple of weeks.  Here’s a partial list of what I have been or soon will be up to:

  • Mystery novel beta read
  • Another mystery novel beta read
  • Sci-fi novel review
  • Ghost writing a guide book
  • Writing a blurb for a band concert
  • Editing articles on direct response marketing
  • Writing a series on restaurant marketing
  • Writing an article on interview performance

In the near future, I’ll also be interviewing one of my oldest clients, the very first stranger to take a chance on my work.  I’m really looking forward to that one.

Also for the next few weeks, I may not be very present on the internet more than is absolutely necessary. It’s basically the result of piles of extra work at the day job.  Like extra work to the tune of 72hr weeks for the next month.  So yeah, I’ll be posting and tweeting sporadically at best.  After that, I’ll be back with a vengeance.

Interview with Deanna Verhoff

First, I apologize for not posting for a couple of weeks.  It has been insanely busy here at Gingerman HQ.  Second, I apologize as well for the lousy lighting in this video.  We had a ton of technical difficulties to overcome on this one.  Now on to more important things.

Deanna is one of the most talented writers I have had the pleasure to work with.  I’ve only been able to fully edit one of her books and begin reading another but from what I can tell, both are excellent and in a class of their own.  More than that, it would be best to let the interview do the talking.

Editorial Philosophy

In the inaugural video here at Gingerman Editorial, I explain a bit of my editorial philosophy.  I talk about the importance of internal consistency vs. external consistency and talk about the over emphasis on things like adverbs and passive voice.
