Developmental Editor’s Author Client to be Published in September

Editor Susan Mary Malone’s Most Recent Author Client to Publish First Novel “Trouble Brewing”

Dallas, TX, September 05, 2014 --( Susan Mary Malone ( developmental editor, has announced that another of her author clients, Adam Ruskin, is having a book published through a traditional publishing company in September. Ruskin’s first novel, “Trouble Brewing,” will be published later this month to bookstores across the nation. Susan Malone edited the book for Ruskin, working with the author on the plot and character development, quite in addition to the book proofreading. This will be Ms. Malone’s 45th book that she has edited, to be published through a traditional publisher.

The author, Adam Ruskin, stated the following on working with Susan Malone: "How good a book editor is Susan? Let me put it this way: I'm hesitant to tell too many other writers how fantastic she is because I don't want to have to stand in line next time I have a manuscript that needs her help."

Miss Malone stated: “It was such a rewarding experience working with Adam on his novel, for everyone involved in the project. I saw him grow a lot as an author, as often happens in the process of drafting and editing the first novel of an author. In book editing, I’m always struck by the individuality and creativity, which is so unique to that author. The only thing missing from these works are the elements of storytelling, which help properly convey the story to its audience. That’s exactly what has happened with this book, and I couldn’t be happier for Adam.”
