This was my first book editing project, and the one that got Eagle Harbor Editing started. Nearly two months ago, my friend Michele Makinson (a.k.a. J.M.M. Adams) and I talked about having me edit her book The Mystery of Sandy Island. I edited the first three chapters first, and later the whole book.
From this experience, I learned something about my process of working. I think that instead of doing as many pages as I can before my eyes start glazing over, I will take two or three chapters a day and examine them in-depth. That way I can catch as many things as possible. Another is to set the work aside for a short period of time, so I can look at it again with fresh eyes.
I aim to see this as a learning process, and I feel that from this project alone, I have learned a great deal. Not the least of which about German Shepherd dogs.
