They also discuss their work on finishing the late Gibson Michaels’ fourth and final book, Eerie, and Dawn’s very talented Great Aunt Ora Nichols, a trailblazer in the field of sound effects in the Golden Age of Radio.
She discusses her own scribe’s journey, why she edits other authors’ books & why it is vital that all authors have their books edited before submitting to an agent or a publisher. We talk about our collaboration to help finish the late author Gibson Michaels’ fourth and final book, Eerie. We also explore her connection to this mysterious woman from the past who was a true pioneer.
We overcame some connection issues on Dawn’s end, and a microphone issue on mine (stupid new webcam) which led to me donning the headset this week and looking like a play-by-play man for a hockey game. But at the end of the day, we had a great time.
