Editors an proof readers needed

I am about half way through the recording schedule and almost ready to move to phase two. First I need to get Raising Hell out on podiobooks. Almost there.

Second, I need to finish book two, Hell to Pay. Off to a good start.

Finally, I need to get boom one on iBooks and Amazon. This is where I need your help. As soon as I'm done recording I am going to go through raising hell and edit away. I have idea for a couple of chapters I could add, plot lines I can flesh out etc. basic my I want to take a 40,000 word book and make it a 60000 word (about 250 paperback pages) novel. I need your help. I need people to proofread and edit. I email you a copy and you read it, let me know where I screwed up with typos and give suggestions on what I can improve.

The downside. I'm a starving writer. You won't get paid. You will get the boom early and a special mention/thank you as editors. Are you interested? Shoot me an email at bryanldekker@gmail.com and I will get back with you.

Thanks!
B.

New Author

From time to time I like to mention new authors. I have a few that I have connected with and really like as individuals and authors. I want to recommend author Kaylan Doyle. She does scifi and fantasy and certainly deserves our support. Check her work out at www.kaylandoyle.com

Work Work Work

I've been plugging away at finishing the audio portion of this project. I've finished 5 episodes and will record 2 more tomorrow. When I am done recording I will reedit the book, probably add some content and send it to Amazon as an ebook. I will be looking for some beta readers at that time. Any takers?

Change of Plans.....

Podiobooks.com has recently changed their policies. Previously an author could submit his episodes one at a time, as they were completed, but now they can only be submitted when the work is complete. I have decided to post episodes here until they are all done and then they will be on podiobooks.com and iTunes. I will let everyone know when that occurs. I will start posting episodes this weekend.

In the meantime, I started the sequel to Raising Hell. it will be called hell to pay, and will involve a deal with the devil that our hero, Nate LaCroux, has to keep from coming to fruition. Someone he loves has been taken, and will be sacrificed to satan.

I like the way the story has started out, fast and furious, with action from the very first chapter, when Maeve, Queen of Winter Court of Faerie, walks into Nate's favorite restaurant, Billy Wang's Wing Emporium, and demands payment for a debt. She demands Nate's niece as payment, to be hunted as the prey of the Wild Hunt. If Maeve hunts her down, she dies.  We will see most of the characters from the first book, and a couple of new ones.

One of the new characters is lifted from Irish history, and the song Black Rose by Thin Lizzy. Props to anyone who can guess who this character is.

Sorry For The Delay

I wanted to take a moment and apologize. I have been sidelined by a battle with the flu these last few days. I am running a bit behind in the recording and editing process. I will be submitting episode one, with a slight tweak or two, to podiobooks.com tomorrow.

The edit is almost done on episode two and I will submit it no later than the first of next week. Episode three is recorded but not edited.

I am also about half way done with a short story that is set in the Raising Hell universe. I will post it as soon as it's done. I will also be starting the sequel soon. I have the beginning sketched out. Feel free to leave comments on where you would like to see this story go.

Thanks for your patience.
