J.J's and Amy's Editing Service; A Testimonial by Pepper Pace



Pepper Pace; Amazon top 100 bestselling author, Amazon top 100 most popular erotic author and author of Beast, A Seal Upon Your Heart, The Urban Vampire series and more.

I am an author of IR Romance and recently I decided to re-edit my previously published work. Although I had many positive reviews the one constant comment was that I needed professional editing.

As a struggling indie writer I just didn’t believe that I could afford professional editing until I discovered that author J.J. Murray and his wife Amy had an editing business that was professional, quick and affordable. For a price that is lower than most editing services I not only got the benefit of J.J. Murray’s experience but also his wife Amy who has been instrumental in the editing of his award winning stories.

A Seal Upon Your Heart was the first novel that I sent them to edit and I was amazed that they had it polished and returned in about eight days! Now, I am not saying that they will always edit in that short of time span but having to sit and wait for editors for months on end is very difficult and that is not something that I will ever worry about with my new editors. Yes, I have spoken their names into the universe and claimed them as my own!

Although I write Interracial Romance, I enjoy writing in other genres, and tentatively I approached them with a Vampire series. I was happy to learn that they edit in all genres. When they returned the first two novels in my Urban Vampire Series I felt as if I had two mentors! Their service includes more than just correcting grammar but they also point out common errors to avoid and they show ways to maximize the story. And they did this for two novels in two weeks!

I won’t lie. I would like to wrap them up and keep them all to myself but I also want to brag and shout to everyone what a find I’ve discovered in J.J’s and Amy’s Editing Service.

Questions about Urban Vampire; the bookset

Hi friends, fans and family! I'm sorry that I haven't been around much. This month has been a very busy one for me. With re-edits, putting the finishing touches on UV III The Return of Alexis, securing my editor for this project and etc, I've read some of your comments but haven't had time to respond. Sorry, sorry, sorry. 

Let's correct that now. Some questions I've received are: 
  • Will the book set will be available in paperback? It will eventually but not for several weeks (maybe a few months). 
  • What is the exact release date? I do not know. I promise this part is not a teaser. My editors have it and stated it would be complete by mid-April. I have no reason to doubt them and as soon as they send it to me, I will do my final review and make it available.
  • I don't like reading scary books! Is this Vampire series going to scare me? No. It is not scary but it is graphic and there is plenty of suspense. There is also a LOT of sexiness. My first editor was seriously sweating when she did her first round reading of the revised books 1 & 2 and she did not get scared once. But...if you don't like blood than you may want to skip this because there is plenty of blood!
  • Can I purchase the third book in the series as I already have the first two? No. You do not have the first two. I made MAJOR changes to the first two stories although the flow and facts remain the same. You really need to read each book once again.
  • Why do we have to re-buy an entire bookset??? Well the answer to that is you don't because I am making the first two books in the set FREE. I am also making it easy for you to get them by making it into a book set so that no one will miss the fact that the first two stories have changed. I usually release my new novels at $5.99 but this one will be released for $4.99.
The reason that I am doing this book set project is because several years ago I wrote a kick-ass Vampire series. This happened before LA Banks hit the scene and before Twilight etc. After I sat on the story for several years I decided to place it on sale and one day a publisher took notice of it and suggested some major (and well needed changes). 

Well I did not end up going with that publisher, but the changes were so good that I had a dilemma. Authors DO NOT re-write previously written books and then re-sale them. That is just a no-no. But you can give them away, right?

Eureka! So my plan was to include the two re-vised novels with the 3rd book in the series for free. And hence the Urban Vampire 3 novel book set. 

Now I must scurry back to my writing and I will peep you guys later.

Now, for your viewing pleasure; Urban Vampire bookset E-book trailer!

Beast-newly edited

I have quite the number of re-edited works published. These are edits that have been edited for grammar but the stories itself doesn't change. If you have Amazon Kindle and you have enabled 'book update' then these changes will update automatically. If they do not change then by contacting Amazon's customer service, it will allow the changes to be pushed to your Kindle.

I want to thank Nikita Bryant for reaching out and offering her services. She did a great job on Beast! This story has recently been a bestseller on Amazon and AllRomance e-books. It has been very eye opening to see reviews that state the story would have been better had it been edited.

Again, that is why I have re-edited and reduced the price of each of the re-edited books. The edits go across the board to all areas where you can purchase Beast in e-book or in paperback. Thanks friends, fans and family. And thank you Nikita.

A Seal Upon Your Heart

     I've had the supreme honor of releasing the latest edition of my book; A Seal Upon Your Heart. As I mentioned in earlier posts, I intend to release newly edited versions of previously released books. The latest is A Seal Upon Your Heart which was edited by acclaimed author J.J. Murray and his wife Amy. They have an editing business and I was quick to take advantage of it as soon as I learned of it! Thus far they have worked on 3 of my novels.
     I created an e-book trailer. You can purchase this new edition in paperback at Createspace. If you have an Amazon Kindle it should update automatically.
