just B more: My first freelance editing gig is still underway. I look out for my clients, which can be seen in the post from 1/1/17; the author was injured and unable to get the necessary photos, so I obliged her. https://justbmoreblog.wordpress.com

J. L. Adams: I was asked to start editing her first book before it was finished. Within a week, she was over her writer's block and completing the first draft. Shortly after that, she found a publisher and within six months of our collaboration, she was a published author. http://a.co/gUQwzBh
