I first went in search of an editor in the fall of 2010. I had decided to self-publish the youth novel Mystery Light in Cranberry Cove (under the pen name Candy McMudd) and knew I couldn’t complete the final edit myself – no writer can.
My search began on the Internet. I googled editors specifically in Canada for two reasons.
1) I wanted to use Canadian English in my novel and believed an editor outside of the country might have difficulty knowing which spellings we used.
2) I’m patriotic and wanted to shop locally.
