What does your editor do in their spare time?
Death, anniversaries and snakes? What on earth do these have in common? In the normal run of things, you would be hard-pressed to put these three together, but in the world of Angel Editing, their world is never normal.
The main editors at Angel Editing live a fairly exotic and crazy life; the partners are British born, living in Spain, working with authors from all over, and they keep what can only be described as a wild zoo.
Recovering from their recent attendance at two funerals, in two countries, in two weeks, the partners are also celebrating twenty-one years together. Death heavy on their minds, a new life is also something to celebrate. With three water turtles, a neurotic dog, a fat hamster, and a lazy tarantula, what could be a more normal gift to each other, and to the office, than a snake. With that in mind, here comes Shiva, a beautiful Blood Red Albino Python; the latest addition to the Angel Editing world.
It make you think; the editors from AE have a huge base of clients, new and old, from all over the world. Every day, their customers write to them for help, advice, editing and formatting tips, publishing info, general help, and encouragement. But little do these writers suspect that at any given moment, there could be a tarantula on the editor's shoulder, a snake around their necks, or a surprise anniversary party being planned.
So the next time you write to your editor, remember to ask if they have death, anniversaries, or snakes on their mind!
