Author, Douglas Hackle, wrote this testimonial about my editing:
When I hired Bradley Sands to edit my collection of short stories, I did so somewhat begrudgingly, not sure the manuscript needed it. There just didn’t appear to be anything he or anyone else could do to improve a thing that was already damn-near perfect—this polished manuscript of overflowing awesomeness of mine. But I sent it to him anyway.
Then I waited . . . .
When an email from Bradley arrived in my inbox with his edits attached to it, I was seated at my writing desk squirming around in my chair due to some major discomfort in my gluteal region. Ignoring my butt pain, I opened the email and was startled to see an arm emerge from my computer screen like some ghost limb, an arm that presumably belonged to Bradley Sands. In the upturned palm of his hand rested a metal serving platter with a domed lid just like they use at fancy restaurants. Frightened but intrigued, I reached forward and gingerly raised the lid . . . and I was astounded to see a hairy, pimply, chalk-white ass sitting there on the platter.
Panic set in. I leaned forward, reached back with both my hands, and felt around my posterior to confirm my suspicions: My ass was indeed gone—and Bradley “The Sandstorm” Sands had just handed it to me on a fucking platter!!!
After refastening my ass to my hindquarters using duct tape and superglue, I opened the attached file to discover that Bradley had handed me my ass editorially as well.
In conclusion, Bradley Sands is thorough, candid, timely, and highly knowledgeable about the mechanics of writing and the craft of writing stories. And he’ll hand you your ass if need be. That’s a good thing. That’s what you want.
