Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like
It’s a real pleasure to tell you about my most recent Indie-Scribable project.
I’m sure you all know and love Carrie Rubin, author of the extraordinary Eating Bull — the world’s first obesity thriller. Well, not long ago, Carrie hired me to edit her latest novel, a paranormal medical thriller with the chilling title, The Bone Plague.
If you’re familiar with Carrie’s work, you won’t be surprised to learn that this next project is not just well-written but also magnificently entertaining. I can’t tell you anything about it right now, since Carrie, like me, is a little superstitious about revealing too much too soon, but I can tell you that she’ll be pitching it next week at ThrillerFest XI in New York. Having read it, I’ve got good money on her coming away from the Big Apple with an offer of representation or two.
Stay tuned for a follow-up on how her face time with the agents and editors went.
Sadly, if she does land an agent, it’ll be quite a while before we get to see The Bone Plague on bookstore shelves. I’m rooting for her, though. This is a novel with all the ingredients for a real success.
Carrie was kind enough, by the way, to put together a new testimonial for my Indie-Scribable website. If you’re looking for an editor, I can’t think of a better calling card:
I sought out Indie-Scribable to get my manuscript ready to query for a traditional publishing path. I’m so glad I did, because it was a pleasure to work with Kevin on the edits for The Bone Plague. His professionalism and expertise are topnotch, and his insights invaluable. Not only did he tidy up my grammar, syntax, and punctuation mishaps, he helped clarify my metaphors and story bits that didn’t make sense. Plus, he offered advice on how to hone the ending, keeping it in check with the rest of the novel’s tone. I couldn’t be happier with the results. I highly recommend this editorial service.
