Checklist for a Good Editor by Author Selena Kitt (onehandedwriters.com)

One Handed Writers

As an editor, establishing a good editing relationship with the author is of primary concern. Without trust between you, editing is going to be a disaster. The author needs to know you’re interested only in making their work shine, not changing their voice, style or story. When an author knows this, they will be much more likely to accept suggestions and changes. So work hard at making your author(s) understand this and give them plenty of reason to trust you with their “babies.”

1. Grammar, spelling and punctuation are paramount. If you’re not sure, check it out. So if you have problems with lay and lie, its and it’s, affect and effect, make sure you look it up. There are plenty of online dictionaries and places to check punctuation and spelling. Bookmark your favorites and keep them handy while you’re editing.

The moment I opened the door to our suite, the sight of Bella assaulted me where I stood, my cock twitched taking notice of the short little jean skirt she had on. She didn’t need to turn around and bend over for my mind to conjure the image of the light denim fabric riding up over her luscious ass, giving me a glimpse of the silky pink panties I’d once found stuck to side of the dryer one day – the very same ones I was tempted to keep until I realized how fucking perverted it was.

Jesus Christ…
 
My imagination was starting to run away with me, and I couldn’t stop myself from wishing that she’d be wearing those panties, knowing that it was too much to hope that she might have been thinking about me, wanting my cock so bad that a little wet spot soaked right through to the center just between her shapely thighs.
The temperature seemed to go up about a hundred degrees in here, and I hadn’t even said anything to my beautiful. Clearing my throat a little, I muttered out a quick “Did you have a nice day?” She didn’t answer though, she was too busy staring at me strangely as I removed my tie and jacket in an attempt to cool my body down and forget about the nasty thoughts running rampant in my perverted brain.
Still no answer. Was I that obvious? Could she tell that I was fighting with everything I had not to pop a fucking boner right now? Could she see my semi-hard cock twitching in my slacks?
Fuck it… “Bella?” I had to say something. I needed to know what was going on in that pretty little head of hers.
“Huh?” she asked wide-eyed, finally glancing up toward my expectant face. I at least needed to looklike I had some composure, even if it was barely hanging on by a thread.
“I asked if you had a nice day,” I said quickly, my brow raised in question.

SU4K Compilation

Hello all!
I just wanted to let everyone know about SU4K and what it’s all about.
“One week ago, a friend posted her story** on her Facebook wall. Devastated by this news from a deeply-valued reader/supporter/friend, I asked the question so many others have asked: “What can we do for you, K?” Her answer: “I want for nothing for myself. Do you think we could raise money for Stand Up 2 Cancer?” Thus, Stand Up 4 Katalina (SU4K) was born.”
 
I will be contributing as both an author and banner maker. 
At Katalina’s request, I have written an EPOV outtake from Chapter’s 53-57 of Hello Beautiful called My Beautiful.
To get the compilation with My Beautiful as well as dozens of other outtakes and O/S, all you need to do is contribute a minimum of $5.00 or take a little time to help out by being a banner-maker, writer, or beta for the cause.
