Editor and writer KJ Charles will join us via Skype to talk about the process of editing from both sides: what authors should expect from an editor, what an editor needs from an author, getting through hard edits without tears, how to tell if your editor is being too easy on you, and what to do when edits go bad. Suitable for traditionally published authors, self-pubbers working with freelancers, and people who simply want to be better beta readers/crit partners.

BIO:

KJ Charles spent over 20 years as an editor (development edits, line edits, and commissioning) in various British publishing houses, including Harlequin Mills & Boon, where she edited authors such as Penny Jordan. She recently changed sides to become a full time writer, and has published historical queer romances with Loveswept (Penguin Random House), Riptide and Samhain, as well as self publishing. She blogs on editing, self-editing, publishing and more at kjcharleswriter.com. Her claim to fame is a world-famous author refusing to speak to her ever again…twice.
