Rules of Editing – Part III

DISCLAIMER: This post is meant to be humorous and in no way constitutes actual editing rules to live by (well, maybe a few). I just thought I’d put something together to make you laugh at my expense during my final edit of The Vampyre Prophecy.

So, go forth, laugh, enjoy, COMMENT. I swear, it’s like I’d have to sell my soul to get y’all to comment…

Rule #14 of final editing stage: don’t get acrylic nails too long that’ll prevent *good* typing on the new laptop!

Rule #15 in final edit: try not to call your editor bad names when s/he calls you a lazy-ass for not adding dialogue where it’s probably necessary.

Rule #16 during final edits: laugh, don’t cry, when your editor asks you how a vampyre transports himself from one place to another.

Rule #17 of final edit: laugh at your editor’s mistakes, but do NOT point them out! This may or may not cause you harm.

Rule #18: don’t get mad when you realize your editor is way geekier than you. “Stay on the road. Keep clear of the moors.” @RCMurphy

Rule #19: beware the POV switch, for your editor may bitch slap you.

Rule #20: try not to laugh when your editor forgets or misspells a word. *snorts*


Yeah, it’s a short one this time around. Sue me. At least I posted something.

It’s finally that time of year again, where the Zombie Survival Crew unveils its latest anthology…and I’m in it this time! But here, I’ll let Juliette tell you all about the book and how to pre-order before the big cover reveal:

From the mobile unit of ZSC Commander-in-Chief Juliette Terzieff:

After months of anticipation, the day has finally come when we can release the cover art for Undead Uncensored, the second Zombie Survival Crew anthology.

ZSC crew members, including Wendy Sparrow, Jessica Capelle, Robin Sellman, Amber Revelt, Stephanie Allen, Christopher De Voss, and many others contributed their artistic endeavors to this creeptastic collection!
