I was reminded of a woman I met last year.
She told me she was a freelance writer – and editor.
“Oooh!” I thought, “Maybe she could be The Editor of My Book.
Her name sounded familiar. I looked her up online and realised I already owned one of her books.
Synchronistic! This was starting to look good. I found the book and read some of it.
It was so … dry.
I thought: “She is not the editor of my book”.
Shawn Coyne works with Steven Pressfield.
Two of Steven Pressfield’s books are also on my book shelf:
‘The War of Art’ and ‘Turning Pro.’
These books are not ‘dry’. They are spectacular. They are inspiring. They are life-changing. You read them and then you re-read them, again and again.
That’s the kind of book I love to read.
That’s the kind of author I want to be.
That’s the kind of editor I want!
Until then, I’m reading both Shawn and Steven’s books, hoping that some of what they’ve got might rub off on me …
Steven Pressfield and Shawn Coyne are partners of ‘Black Irish Books’ publishing company.
