Michelle Knight. Writer, photographer, programmer, truck driver and general, all round nut case. Life is a journey and that's what this blog will probably end up being. Let's see where we go, eh? ;-)

Just collected, "Check Mate," from the person doing the editing.


She is a serious book worm and not only knows her languages but applies her editing pen with sympathy to the author's voice.


I nearly blushed when she said that she'd read worse from authors who had, "made it." She really does think that Check Mate should go mainstream.


This one is damn difficult, however. I'm British and writing with UK English spelling, but using US terminology and phrases (with the odd UK phrase mixed in where I don't know American terms well enough) ... so this one has actually been a tough one to work on; dealing in both means that I can't rely on the spell checker to save me. Add being dyslexic on top of that and it has been an extremely hard slog ... but an enjoyable one ... so I'm hopeful of maybe an occasional four star here and there when it gets released.
