The editing arm of Ma Nao Books never rests

This just in from an author I had the privilege of working with earlier this year. She enlisted my help turning her dissertation into sample chapters for a book. It's always fun to edit something from the beginning of a project, in this case making it seamless and compelling for the acquisitions editors at a university press.

Not only did I get to learn a lot about the fascinating subject matter, but I got the benefit of experiencing someone's exhaustive research with fresh eyes. What a great story it is, and now it has a shot at a wider audience. The writer heard a yes this week. Congratulations!

On top of this vicarious coup, I just received another manuscript to edit—this time fiction.

In other bright news, I'll have a piece at The Arts Center in Corvallis in March. The show's called Un-Speak-Able, but I'm sure to speak to y'all more about it.

Speaking (again!) of shows, I hope to announce something soon about exhibiting in the Pearl next month. As it is for real—this looking like another hydro-heavy Oregon winter—when it rains it pours.
