but I am overwhelmed with giddiness reading my name mentioned on the acknowledgements page of a novel, My Occasional Torment, by Bee Robb, that I copyedited. I knew there was the possibility he’d mention me by name, but I did not know for sure until my lovely friend, Staci, checked the book out from the library and emailed me that my name was in it. 🙂
And what sweet words: “Also, a grateful smile of appreciation to Amanda Fowle Bindle, a talented editor who possesses not only the mechanics but also the music of writing.” (swoon!)
Now, can I put this quote on my resume as I was recently canned from this dream freelance copyediting gig and would love to find another exactly like it?
