Today we have a special treat – my first ever interview!

You’ve done the hard work of planning, writing, and revising, and now you’re ready for editing. Trusting your book to someone else can be a daunting prospect. How will you find an editor who will respect your voice and vision, yet still do wonders for your book?
I’m Paige Duke, an independent editor, and I’d love to take a look at your book.
