It’s that time of the year again.  I can’t stop sneezing and my throat keeps tickling from the pollen.   Basically, I’m keeping busy with the music and writing, working on a recital programme of piano works by Liszt and Chopin.  

In regards to the writing…the other day I sent my first novel, a psychological thriller, for professional editing.

  1. Oh, you did it! Congratulations, Lawrence! I know you have been thinking about this for a while. Please let me know how it goes, i have been thinking about it. Oh, and how did you find your editor?

    Are you one of those who get knocked out on antihists?

  2. Hi Nadine, I’ll keep you updated. Just to let you know, the editor is based in London, UK, so she might not be the right person for you. You’re in the States, right?

    Hi Jenni, thanks for commenting. I submitted my work a couple of times to an agent in London (that’s where I’m based) and she suggested I seek editorial help. Apparently, this is a good sign and shows the book has potential. Nothing is guaranteed at the moment, but I feel a lot more optimistic than I did a year ago.

  3. No, I don’t touch antihists. I’m a bit wary of taking hay fever meds. Plus, I like a glass of wine or two in the evenings. Not sure the wine and meds would mix.

  4. Good luck, Lawrence! I sent my first chapter off for a (paid) critique today. Due to the cost of the critique, I wanted to see how the 31 pages of my first chapter turned out before I put any more money into it.

    I’m curious to see how this turns out. I hope you have a good experience with your editing service.


  5. PS sorry to hear about the allergies. I suffer from them, too, but I have to take meds. I’m glad you can do without!


  6. Hi,

    Yes, Jenny. The agent is one of the best in London. She recommended the editor. It’s a bit costly, but I’m willing to take chances.

    Thanks, Teresa. Hope your first chapter gets some good feedback.
