Good News and New News!

Here we are in September! I’m so happy not to be frying like bacon in a pan (mmmm, bacon!) and am really enjoying the cooler weather. Remind of that when I’m bitching about the cold, okay?

Yeah. This doesn't look good.
Yeah. This doesn’t look good.

You know that’s coming up sooner rather than later, right?

But I said GOOD NEWS!

I am pleased and happy to report Jennifer Wingard and I won an award for editing Forever Road by Catie Rhodes. Jennifer was the copy editor, and I served as content editor. Love, love, LOVE me some Peri Jean Mace! She’s really my kind of gal, and I had so much fun working with Catie. It’s a great story.

CHANGES TO THE BLOG

In New News, this blog will concentrate on the editing side of things. If you’d like to keep up with my own writing, you can visit me at AnnettaRibken.com for updates on what’s happening. While you’re there, sign up for the newsletter–you’ll see covers, trailers, and excerpts before anyone else and as a subscriber, be eligible for special giveaways just for YOU. Since my production schedule is hardly blistering right now, you won’t be spammed to death with emails, promise. 🙂

NO SPAM, I SWEAR !
NO SPAM, I SWEAR !

DON’T MISS OUT ON EDITING WITH NETTA!

Speaking of subscribers, the newsletter here on Word Webbing provides valuable editing tips and new releases from my clients as they happen. So make sure you sign up–it comes out once a month and you don’t want to miss it.

Another change coming up is on Wednesdays, I’ll be posting the editing tips here. They’re six months behind, so signing up for the newsletter ensures you get the latest right away.

Work continues on both sites as I update and clean out stuff. It’s almost like tackling the closet where you throw everything because you don’t know where else to put it. Don’t play. I know you know what I’m talking about.

Yep. You know this closet.
Yep. You know this closet.

In the meantime, I hope you’re writing and having a good month! Tell me what you’re up to in the comments 🙂

What’s Going On

Well, you know. The usual. Busy is BUSY, but that’s nothing unusual for not only me, but most everyone I know. And while busy is good, it can also be frazzling sometimes. Especially when you share space with a judgmental and obnoxious cat who is all up in your business 24/7. Not mentioning any names.

The bitchiest cat face on the planet. Judging. Always judging.

I’m not the most dedicated of bloggers on the planet, that’s for sure. And when I do decide to post, I have ten million ideas but when I open up a blank document, do you think I can find a brain cell? Hell, no. They scatter like rats deserting the Black Pearl sucked into a black, watery vortex. Please tell me I’m not the only one.

Since I’ve wanted to impart some editing tips and tricks for the longest time, I figured the easiest way was to create a monthly newsletter. You can sign up at the top of this page–and it will be information you won’t see posted on the blog. I’ll also include a shout-out to the writers I know who are releasing some outstanding work.

The first newsletter launched January 31st, and included five important editing tips when starting the editing process. On February 28th, the newsletter will continue on this editing journey with what you should look for in your First Read. Tell you what–sign up today and I’ll make sure you get the first five tips, too.

Now to get this feline out of my face so I can work. Wish me luck. Heh.
