I do some proofreading on the side. Well, I do as much proofreading (or editing) work as I can find. Vicki Wootton is a friend in Guadalajara, Mexico who writes fiction stories. She is a very good writer, and even when I am not working for her, editing or proofreading her works, I enjoy reading her stories.
The latest book that I edited is called Where Have All The Young Girls Gone. It is a story set in the near future, as are many of her books, in which females are becoming more rare. Fewer girls are born. This makes being a female a very tough role, as women are often accosted in public. This story follows a mother and daughter through several years of their lives.
In editing Vicki’s books, I am always pleased with how few things I can find to comment on. Most of the time it is simply an extra word, evidence that she has edited her own work herself and changed the wording of a line. Andrew always proofreads these blogs of mine, and he will often find the same kind of thing in my writings, much more frequently than I can find in Vicki’s.
If you would like a very enjoyable and exciting read, check out Vicki Wootton’s books on Amazon or on vweBooks. Amazon has both Kindle and paperback versions. Check out Vicki Wootton’s Facebook profile.
