It was my first effort, and even though I have always wanted to be a writer and was an English teacher like Nate, the novel ended up like it did. I rushed it. I had no professional editorial help.

Needless to say, I think I learned a great deal from the effort. I have researched other writers drafts before editors took over (Ken Kesey's Sometimes a Great Notion) and have seen similar issues, so being a story teller doesn't mean you are a strong language technician. (I am not comparing myself to KK by any means).

I self-published "Farewell..." and did not pay for an editor. I wish I had.

The novel I recently completed was published by a Portland company Inkwater". It was local to me and they provided a brilliant and experienced editor (Linda Franklin). "Digging Up New Business -The SwiftPad Takeover" has none of the problems you found. I am not sure it is as good a story as Farewell, but it is well edited.

Once again, thanks for reading it. Your comments unfortunately for me, are correct. I am working on my 3rd novel now, and feel I am only now learning how to write. (less)

Jason Matthews, born in 1951, looks and talks a bit like Leon Panetta, who ran the CIA for a while during the Obama Administration. In other words, he doesn’t  look like a “Jason Bourne” type spy. He is the author of two very popular spy novels, mentioned in the title of this post. His first novel Red Sparrow was made into a movie this year, (2018).  I give it a so-so rating. The second one Pal... Read more of this blog post »
