)-- Award-winning book author and novel editor Susan Mary Malone of Malone Editorial Services (http://www.maloneeditorial.com/), announced that her novel development client James Dawsey, author of the non-fiction work “Peter's Last Sermon: Identity and Discipleship in the Gospel of Mark,” has just been published by Mercer University Press.
James Dawsey stated, “I loved working with Susan Malone. Working with her was like taking a graduate writing course. As would any superb teacher, Susan pointed out the flaws, made sure I understood, suggested approaches, provided unlimited follow-up as I revised, and her optimistic, bountiful encouragement made it all a fun experience! Would I recommend Susan Malone to others? Yes and yes. My novel, “Masters and Savages,” came out in June 2009. I was so impressed with her work that I sent “Peter's Last Sermon: Identity and Discipleship in the Gospel of Mark” to her, and I've also sent my most recent novel manuscript to her. If you are looking for help, but don't see exactly where you need it, then Ms. Susan Malone from Malone Editorial is the person you should contact.”
Susan Mary Malone stated, “I call myself a ‘developmental editor.’ It’s not merely book proofreader or correcting someone’s grammar or sentence structure. I dive right into the character development and story development. With James Dawsey, this is his second published book on which I’ve worked with him, and his writing is getting better all the time.”
Susan Malone's professional background includes working as an editor, columnist and reporter for newspapers and magazines. She is the author of “By the Book,” “BodySculpting: The Weisbeck Way,” “Fourth and Long” and “Five Keys to Understanding Men.”
