Stacey Turner

I talk a lot about editing: why all writers need to be edited. We are just too close to our work, no one is perfect, and an extra set of eyes, another opinion, is so valuable. We are not the gods of words. Writers are flesh and blood, fallible people.

Enter Stacey Turner. This talented young lady is the Editor for Angelic Knight Press. She is a true professional and will be so valuable to Yvonne and me. Plus, I already consider her to be a personal friend as well. This is important to me. How many of us have worked in the real world for total bastards? Whoah, look at all the raised hands. I don't want to work that way. Isn't it so much nicer to be friends with everyone around you? Sure, this is a business, but it's fun, and we're family. With Stacey's children, Yvonne's children, and my children, there are 17 kids. That's a bunch. Guess what? We all love children. 

We all love writing and reading and want to put out the highest quality books we can. Thus, I have to walk the walk as well as talk the talk. I can't do it alone; I need good people. 

I have good people!

Once the three of us come back down to earth, I'll mention more about Stacey and what she does. I don't have a lock on the lady. She's her own person. I will say this for now: her prices are very reasonable. I was blown away! There is one link above for you to use to contact her. You will be pleasantly surprised.

Sometimes good things happen. This week, Stacey walked in to Yvonne's and my lives. We are better for the experience. Much better.



  1. If you keep talking so great about me, I'm going to have to start paying you for all the publicity!

    On a serious note, I consider myself lucky to have found you and Yvonne as well! I can't wait to see what great things we can accomplish together!


  2. Not to worry: no charge for publicity. We will do some great things. Believe me. I will start my edits this weekend of Yvonne's short story "Bipedal." So, within a week, I should have it out to you. It runs around 12,000 words. She has another one which she is editing, and I'll have to see which of my things I'm ready to foist upon an unsuspecting world. The world will never be the same!

    Thank you for your kind statements!


  3. Believing that in order to become successful you must first help others succeed, I find this post to be very refreshing.

    Best wishes to you Blaze, Yvonne and Stacey. Oh and Efi Loo wants you to know she is looking forward to being "scared" by what you achieve! After all, she is a cat vamp!

  4. I love your statement, T.K.

    We are definitely an interesting team, but you are so right: we will be helping each other succeed, which sets up a domino effect with those around us. We are not isolationists. We are prophets of the word.

    Efi Loo would get along fine with Stacey's cats.
