I want to reiterate that I couldn’t do what I do without the support of two very wonderful women: Kleannhouse and Sephrenia!
As you likely know, Sephrenia does most of the artwork for my stories. Here are just three of my favorite pieces that she’s done (though it’s hard to pick faves)!
Kleannhouse has beta’d many things for me. And she doesn’t just point out editing/proofreading issues. Nope. She makes me think about things and often makes a suggestion that finds its way into the story.
For instance, here is a passage from the upcoming chapter of The Sleeper Must Awaken.
From that comment, I thought something like this. “Hell yeah!” And then I wrote this:
As you can see, sometimes just a tiny comment that seems offhand sparks a little development, and I–for one–am much happier with the second version! This, to me, is what a wonderful Beta does–in addition to being an extra pair of eyes on a story in order to limit errors.
Both Sephrenia and Kleannhouse have added to my work in ways that have inspired me and made me think. That’s why–no matter what other awards they may win (and they deserve them all!)–they have already won a “Kat’s Badass Award.”
THANK YOU SEPH AND KLEANNHOUSE!
