My debut as editor of a published book

Today marks my debut as the Editor of a published book – The Shadow Prophecy: Shadow Wolf Trilogy #1. I had the honor to work on the Shadow Prophecy as a pro bono Editor. It was an enthralling journey.

I met Rae Egan through the writing community forum on Twitter. She was looking for editorial inputs and I offered to help. Rae and I collaborated for over 2 months using Google Docs and messengers. Without speaking with each other on phone or voice chat we created a workable collaboration that enabled a quick turnaround.

The entire project was made possible by Rae’s acceptance of guidance and feedback. She explained to me themes and storylines when I posed questions. With each passing day, the book 📚 gripped me with the mystery of the Shadow Prophecy.

I wish self-published author Rae Egan all the best on the launch of her book. She needs our encouragement as she works on the trilogy. After reading book 1, you will want more of this young adult fiction.

This book would not have been made possible without the help of my amazing editor Aneesha Shewani. Her time and dedication went above and beyond anything I could have imagined. If you have enjoyed my book please follow her on Twitter @felinemusings

I am just ME … a soul streaming across constellations, over eons of turbulent changes and tranquil noises, perturbed by the visions that engulf me and ruffled by the oft complacence that challenges the change. Yet, I must travel further across the galaxies, in search of the ultimate metamorphosis. Until then, I sojourn in this life, engrossed in my earthly callings of a wife, mother, professional, writer, dreamer, and seeker. On this blog you will find a spectrum of fiction, poetry, reviews, thoughts, snippets, inspiration, experiences, voices, concerns, excerpts, and everything that the soul has gathered in her fold, over years of reading, searching, finding, losing, and discovering. I regularly indulge in various creative pursuits, like crochet, experimental cooking, reading, and writing, and I hold a managerial/editorial role in a financial services organization with a global footprint. For a long time, social media hijacked my personal writing space, as I was sharing more on Facebook and writing Tweet-sized poetry on Twitter. Social media is instant but temporary gratification. Ultimately, a writer needs their own space, and personal blogging provides that space. I had started a blog more than a decade ago but all things need to be infused with new life, emerge in a new avatar, and so it is with my new blog space. Let your love and encouragement pour into Blue Pen Strokes. Check out Aneesha Shewani (@felinemusings)
