Get Published Episode 129 – David Laderoute

I had the privilege to talk to David Laderoute. David is a Geologist, retired Lieutenant Colonel from the Canadian Army Reserves, entrepreneur and a writer. He has several short stories in print in various small press publications and has written extensively for role-playing games. He is active on Wattpad and his debut novel, Out of Time was released by Five Rivers Publishing in December of 2013.

We had a great conversation that I think you will get a lot out of.

I’ve also been working my way through first revisions of Mik Murdoch: The Power Within for my editor for almost two months now. I won’t deny that I find revisions to be somewhat grueling. You need to consider what your editor is trying to tell you and decide how best to deal with the suggestions while keeping the story consistent and in the right voice. Today, I talk more about making early changes that must be reflect through the entire story in the Tips and Typos Section.

That’s today’s show, I hope you enjoy it.
