The Unsuitable Bride by Pamela McGarry has been shortlisted by the 2021 Whistler Independent Book Awards (WIBA). Editors British Columbia member Sheila Cameron is excited and proud that this is the third WIBA shortlisted book she’s contributed to. The others were Goodnight Sunshine by Mark Cameron (2016 awards) and 17 Weddings by Mark Cameron (2019 awards). As a freelance editor working alone, she often wonders if her editing contributions are worthy. It is a real boost to have WIBA recognize three books that she has had the pleasure of working on. WIBA began in 2016 and provides valuable manuscript feedback to authors.
Editors Toronto member Greg Ioannou is relieved to announce the long-delayed launch of his new company, PubLaunch, which connects writers, especially self-publishing authors, with pre-screened publishing professionals. You’re all welcome to sign up as suppliers (e.g., editors, proofreaders, indexers and writing coaches). We’ve made the process as easy as possible. Professionally certified editors and proofreaders are automatically pre-approved for the areas in which Editors Canada has certified them. We’re currently strengthening the roster of suppliers on the site. We’ll start marketing the site to writers at some point in June. (At the moment, we’re especially looking for experienced ghostwriters and illustrators. Please tell your friends!) Please check out www.publaunch.com.
