NEW SERIES – OUT NOW! First book #free

It’s strange that, for a few months now, I have been writing a new series of books in secret. . . with the intention of releasing them all at once. Now feels like no better time to release it! If you’re on lockdown or self-isolating, you can read this brand-new series at a bargain.

The Bad Series is an epic series of 6+ books (TBC) and charts the lives and loves of a massive friendship group whose lives intertwine. The actions of one often cause many pain, and vice versa. This is a series of epic character building and friendships that have lasted the test of time. While reading you may wonder if these people are actually real. . . but my intention with these books is certainly to give you a healthy dose of drama and twists and turns!

Bad Friends is where you need to start and she’s FREE today only! Scroll for more details…

Bad Friends

A brand-new series of interconnected stories . . .

Lily is in denial about her relationship with Ian, a university lecturer who was sexy three years ago but has become progressively more boring. Her friends try to tell her what she already knows but it’s an illicit Christmas encounter that finally makes her see sense.

Is life about to get better, or will it only get worse?

The path to true love never runs smooth.

AUTHOR NOTE:

The Bad Series saga charts the lives and loves of a group of friends hailing from Yorkshire, England. Their experiences take them all over the world and each character has a BIG story to tell. Sit back, enjoy the ride, and binge until your heart is content!

No More Editing . . .

books-bookstore-book-reading-159711.jpeg

As of April 2018, SML PUBLISHING SERVICES will be no more.

This has and it hasn’t been a difficult decision. Difficult because I won’t be working with my clients anymore, not difficult because WRITING is my one true passion and the direction I’m now going in is the one I’ve been working towards for a long time now.

I’m now in a position where I can focus solely on my own work and marketing it to readers. One thing I’ve had to put on the backburner all these years is marketing, because I simply don’t have time.

Any editing projects I’m already committed to will be honoured, but any new queries I receive from now on will be met with “sorry, I’m not editing anymore”. Neither will I be typesetting or formatting or any of that.

Saying that, I will still be available via email if current clients/fellow authors want to query me for advice.

But that’s it folks!

Writing is my game now, my whole game!

Watch out, because there are so many new titles to come!

The Editing Arm of Sarah Michelle Lynch

An editing arm has been added to “Sarah Michelle Lynch”, click right here to find out more. It’s all simply explained but my email address is there if you have any questions/queries. I’m not accepting any more projects this year, but I do have openings for early 2016.

I got asked the other day, “Wouldn’t you rather just write all the time and forget editing?” I guess I sometimes ask myself that, too, but my answer was, “No!” In fact my long-term goal is to embrace a bunch of writers under my wings (so to speak) and build something a little bigger than an editing business.

The thing is, just sitting down to write, write, write is too much pressure. Besides, isn’t editing just getting paid to read (that thing most if not all writers love?). Obviously, editing involves much more than just reading…

A few writers read UNBIND, the first book in the Sub Rosa Series and were so impressed, they contacted me, asking if I would edit their books. It’s crazy because that isn’t even the most tightly edited novel I’ve written, the next ones are…! I guess that just proves how each book is a learning curve and each book has its own beating heart to try and train and/or maintain.

What I’m working on right now is an anthology a writing group sent me. I’m proofreading it which makes a nice change for me. Normally I “deep edit” books which means considering how the whole thing can be tightened up. So proofing is a holiday, in comparison.

One of the books I just finished working on is Where Did Your Heart Go? by Audrina Lane. A self-published novel with an existing audience/fanbase is something I’d never worked on before. I worked to maintain the essence of the book, keeping the most pivotal scenes/lines intact, while also reshaping Audrina’s words without cutting their personality away. It was a unique book with diaries/first/third person – but in some respects I think that’s why some people choose to self-pub – because you can go outside the box and break the rules a little. Live a little, if you like. Now I’m seeing selfies of people holding her first print run of that very book and I see the smiles on her face and those of her readers. So, no, I don’t hesitate when people ask, “Wouldn’t you just rather write?” NAH! Because then I wouldn’t appreciate it when I do get to write. I might complain about the balancing act sometimes but as a good friend said to me the other day, “Don’t lie, you love your life.”

Yes, just a bit.
