The blog of a girl who's looking for God's plan for her life. In the mean-time, she's knitting books and writing scarves ... or something like that.
Thank you, Tammy! I'm so happy with what my cover designer did. Unfortunately, she is no longer doing covers. :(
Kelsey, I LOVE both of your books! So well-written and uplifting! Was it difficult to realistically portray homeschooled and public schooled girls in your books, or did it come naturally to you?
Wow, Erika, thank you! I'm blessed to hear you say that. It wasn't too difficult to portray them because I know both in real life, but I always tried to be careful not to put either group into a stereotype. But portraying the homeschooled girls was easier because I know their life so well. :)
You are welcome. I love having a book I can recommend to my younger siblings and/or give them as a gift without any reservations. :) Will there ever be a third Six Cousins book? What other types of books might you write?
I have started on a third Six Cousins book; we'll see where the Lord leads on that one. I really want there to be another one! In April I will be publishing a novel set in the 1930s that is a retelling of Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility. I love historical fiction and am intrigued by the possibilities in that genre. :)
Your covers are LOVELY, Kelsey! And I think it's neat that you're an editor as well as a writer - I'm hoping to start editing books at some point or another ;). How did you become interested in editing, and what steps did you first take to starting an editing business? ~ Savannah scattered-scribblings.blogspot.com
Thank you, Savannah! I became interested in editing when I discovered I seemed to have a knack for it...I had people proofread my first novel, and they found hardly any typos in it. I started out by volunteering to edit an online magazine and by doing it for friends' books. When I prayed and felt led to start editing as a business, I took a six-week online copyediting course at ed2go.com. I highly recommend it! My friends recommended me to their writer friends, and soon I had paying clients. :) Thank you for the question!
I had a very similar question, since I'm now a freelance editor as well. My path has been really similar so far. I'll be sure to check out ed2go. :)
That's neat, Abigayle! The course at ed2go gave me confidence and assurance and also taught me quite a few things I didn't know. :)
ed2go ... I'll have to remember that. This was very helpful! Thank you for answering, Kelsey ;). ~ Savannah scattered-scribblings.blogspot.com
