Working With An Editor featuring Tillie Walden and Ricky Miller

Working With An Editor featuring Tillie Walden and Ricky Miller

I was looking for someone to interview about working with an editor. I know that it is something that many authors struggle with and I wanted to give some advice and gauge how one sets parameters as an editor and writer team.

When Tillie Walden and Ricky Miller were suggested as interviewees I was a happy girl because not only do they work together but Tillie is a cartoonist which adds an entirely new dimension to the editing process.

I would also like to add that this interview is fun from an audio point of view because you will be listening to a South African accent (mine), a US accent (Tillie) and a UK accent (Ricky).
