*PLEASE DO NOT POST COMMENTS ON THIS SEARCH PAGE. CONTACT INFORMATION IS FOUND BELOW. USE THAT!*

Before I begin, I would like to thank you for either being interested or just taking the time to read this. I really appreciate the support on this site. ^.^

Anyways, this page is for finding my perfect editor for booksie.com and other sites. Below you will find information regarding what I do, Qualifications, How to edit, How to apply and, some random stuff about me. I really look forward from hearing from you!

 

WHAT I DO:

I’ve always been interested in writing- ever since I could remember. It was only recently that I decided to make it an important hobby of mine. Most of the time it was just for fun and it wasn’t to be read by anybody but, of course it’s different now.

This account is specifically going to be used to post my writing which includes mostly erotica, romance, horror, and science fiction. If you are against erotica writing (stories with descriptive sexual scenes) you most likely need to go somewhere else. Most of the time when I write erotica, I have a legit story behind it so, it’s not just sex all the time.

Sometimes I’ll write poetry, fan fiction, or short stories. These are usually ones that I have previously wrote or have something to do with my life at the time. Sometimes it will include violence, adult language (cursing), or otherwise adult themes. They usually aren’t to the point that their considered ‘rated x’, but are usually rated pg 13-16.

 

QUALIFICATIONS:

To apply and be accepted to be my editor you must have most or otherwise all of the following qualifications.

-You must be comfortable with my writing which include (but are not limited to) erotica, romance, horror and science fiction.  It’s a fact that if you do not a particular genre of writing you will not do good reviewing and editing it. You have to enjoy what you read!

-You must have a working email which you check regularly. All my works that need to be reviewed will be emailed to you. If you do not have an email there will be no way I will be able to send you my pieces. My pieces will be sent to you every 2-5 days. I expect a review to be emailed back to me in 1-2 days (unless you have a good excuse)

-You need to be comfortable with writing and have done it for a while. It makes it easier to edit writing pieces when you have worked or have played with it for years. I can’t have an editor that knows less about writing than I do, it’s just not smart.

-You need to be a good speller, be good at sentence structure and, review correctly. For more information on this please check down in ‘how to edit’.

-You need to have Microsoft word, or notepad on your computer. That is where I recommend you do your editing. It makes it easier.

-You need to have a booksie account. Every time we successfully edit a story, novel chapter, poem or any other works of art I will be putting your name in summary as well as the bottom of the story to show my gratitude toward your help. If you do not have a booksie account or would rather showcase another account on another site please tell me your username and the site and we can work that out.

If you qualify for all the above, CONGRATS! The next stop is to continue forward on how to edit (my way)

 

HOW TO EDIT:

Now my editing will be different than other peoples editing -Only because I like to do thing easier for me and you. Correctly editing will minimize time taken editing on information, so we both can fully enjoy life.

Below is an example paragraph which would represent the work that you will receive from me through email. Note that this is just one paragraph. My pieces can be up to six pages long so, don’t expect something like this.

‘The note wasn’t normal. It was folded three time and taped toward at the end with a special red ribbon like tape. The letters were neatly scrowled in cursive letters and, it looked very professional. When I opened it I couldn’t help but, think of John and I’s wedding and how we sent these things to all our guests.’

So when you receive the piece copy and paste them on word (or notepad) on your computer. Your job is to read it and give me suggestions, ways to improve my writing, spelling corrections, and anything else that you can find. DO NOT BACKSPACE, REWRITE, REARANGE, OR OTHERWISE CHANGE THE ACTUAL PIECE!

For suggestions, spelling corrections, comments or improvements please use (*SUGGESTIONS, SPELLING CORRECTIONS, COMMENTS OR IMPROVEMENTS*) that is a parentheses, star, the information, star, the parentheses. I would ask you to please italicize your suggestion and, highlight where the correction will take place.

So it will look something like this:

‘The note wasn’t normal. It was folded three time (*times*) and taped toward at the end with a special (*take out*) red ribbon like tape. The letters were neatly scrowled (* scrolled*) in cursive letters and, it looked very professional. When I opened it I couldn’t help but, think of John and I’s wedding and how we sent these things to all our guests.’

At the end if you would like to write other comments please enter three times and type in italic.

I really enjoyed the writing, but I think that the discripion is a bit too much. If you can review it and, find out things that may not matter when the reader is reading it will make it great.

And that’s it! That’s all you have to do to be an editor! Now it’s time to apply.

RANDOM STUFF ABOUT ME:

-I have many strange fetishes which include collar bones, legs, facial piercings and the idea of BDMS excites me (and I’m not afraid to admit it!)

-My idea of life is “Do what you like as long as nobody gets hurt.” Want to be a sex slave for the rest of your life? Go right ahead! Want to waste your life away with being high? Kudos to you brother. I don’t hate unless I know you.

-I have an obsession with True Blood! I’ve watched every episode and, I literally think Eric is a God.

-I blame Friar John for the death of Romeo and Juliet. Want to argue with me? Email me!

-Edgar Allen Poe is my favorite Poet. I’ve even decided that if I’m going to have a girl her names going to be Annabel Lee!

-I’m can speak English, some Spanish and, I’m teaching myself some Japanese (which is not a language by itself)

-My favorite color changes from day to day. Today’s color? Blue!

-I’ve been diagnosed with dyslexia since I was 3. Which makes it hard to spell correctly and sometimes read the random capta stuff that some websites make you do. The good thing? I have the pointless ability to write completely backwards letter by letter with no struggle.

-I’m obsessed with classic Disney movies. Beauty and the beast, Lion King, Little Mermaid, Nightmare Before Christmas, Aladdin, Dumbo, Toy story and, Pocahontas just to name a few of my favorites.

 

So what are you waiting for? I’m currently editor-less and I’m working on a novel that will need some help. I need to figure out a title, a complete chapter by chapter plot line, and a character sheet. If you are interested in becoming my editor or helping me out with the above (which could result you into being my idea manager) please don’t hesitate to message me!
