So I’ve seen a few people post a link to Jeff Vandermeer’s new website http://www.jeffvandermeer.com/ and figured I’d jump on the bandwagon. I haven’t had too much contact with Jeff but he has always been very generous with his time, reading many of our releases, writing reviews and doing blurbs.
I also saw on his blog that he is making his living solely on writing and editing as of February this year. It’s a bit of a reality check to realize someone like Vandermeer is just now able to support himself through writing projects. I really do know how hard it is to make a living on this type of thing and thank my lucky stars for my desk job every day but it still surprised me. Anyway, I see that he is offering his services as an editor. The value of a talented editor cannot be underestimated! They will not only improve whatever piece of yours they edit but you can also learn a lot about your strengths and weaknesses as a writer which will affect everything you write from that point forward.
