Hometown: New York, NY

I am a freelance editor and writer with more than 30 years of experience writing, developmentally editing, and copyediting business books, white papers, and by-lined articles.
Contract negotiations with first-time authors, who in my experience do not always understand the "development" part of developmental editing. In particular, I'm interested in how to explicitly inform the author beforehand of what I am giving away for free (a consultation and short evaluation edit); the value of helping him or her develop a vision, target market, and level of complexity for the book; and the fact that editorial consultation is generally not a freebie.
Jill it was wonderful to meet you the other night. I am sure we will see you again sometime soon.
Welcome Jill.....hopefully see you playing on our next event meetup!
Hi Jill, thanks for your message. I hope we'll get a chance to speak next time. Also, I just posted a new PS lunch club meetup for March 23 @ 1pm. It would be lovely to see you there if you are available.
Hi Jill yes was really nice to meet you, it was such a nice evening. give a call if you like warm weather or cold, I like to get out. yes doing a kayaking meetup will be great fun. talk soon
Hi Jill, it was great meeting you too. BAMCafe is a wonderful venue. Renate and I are looking forward to the next meetup that we're able to attend.
Hi Jill - I look forward to meeting you...and maybe your dachsie. He/she is adorable! I actually don't have one myself. I had one as a kid. I do plan on it sometime in my remaining decades. I joined the Meetup in hopes of vicarious dachshund experiences, but I've only been to one meetup so far. Seems like when a bunch of dogs get together they're more interested in sniffing each others' butts than in interacting with needy humans : ). Anyway, I hope to run into you at an event soon.
Hi JB and JB's Pup!! Welcome to Queer Happy Hour! We have a great group here so hopefully you'll join us soon for some FUN TIMES!! I look forward to meeting you :O)
