Carole A. Ward -- Professional Writing/Editing Services


 Need a writer, ghostwriter, editor, or proofreader? Carole A. Ward is a professional writer/editor/proofreader.  I can't stress enough how much you should have a set of objective eyes look over your work before submission to publishers.  Even with the myriad of self-publishing options available today, your work will look amateur if released with problems (everything from the obvious spelling and grammar, to bigger issues of continuity and plot holes).

Carole's work has appeared in online and print publications, blogs, published tomes and the occasional cereal box (written in her own hand with a red pen - we all have our hobbies, don't we.)

If you have a need for the services of the pen, I urge you to consider Carole A. Ward.  After her gentle ministrations, your work will shine like the morning dew!

Ugly Behavior by Steve Rasnic Tem

First review of Steve Rasnic Tem's upcoming collection "Ugly Behavior".  It sounds awesome and I'm not just saying that because I designed the book cover.  Oh, no.  Not just because of that.  Available in August, 2012.

Ray Bradbury, beloved science fiction author, dies | The Lookout - Yahoo! News

Ray Bradbury, beloved science fiction author, dies | The Lookout - Yahoo! News:

They did a nice job with this notice.  Read for more.

RIP, Ray Bradbury

I think our ol' cohort in crimes of fiction, Heath Lowrance, speaks to the loss of Ray Bradbury about as eloquently as anyone could.  So, I'll merely say that my sentiments echo much of what Heath has to say over at his blog today.

You can read it here: .

Have a joyful journey, Ray.

one way to mars

     "It sounds like a science-fiction fantasy, but the company Mars One says it's for real—and that it will really establish a settlement on the planet Mars by 2023.
     The privately financed Dutch company has a plan. All it needs is a lot of cash, equipment and four Mars-bound astronauts who are willing to take a one-way trip to the red planet. 
     The idea is to first send rovers, which will stake out a good site for a settlement and then build out living units. In 2022, the crew will take a "transit habitat" for the seven-month trip to Mars and settle in to their new home. The intention is that the crew will live on the planet for the rest of their lives. Every two years after that, another group will join the settlement to populate the colony."
