"As I (again) edit the heck out of my third soon-to-be-published novel, I'm eternally grateful for the insight of my editor, Joshua Essoe. Yes, he does grammar, but it's his eye for content that I pay for. I'm not blowing smoke. I'm getting goosebumps as I steer A Shard of Sun back in the right direction, and without his honest feedback and keen BS detector, I wouldn't even have seen the trail.

    "If you think an editor is too expensive, think instead about the cost of putting out a so-so published work that has your name on the front.

    Then think about the reward of putting out a GREAT published work that has your name on the front."


-- Jess E. Owen, author of the Summer King Chronicles
