Featured Clients: John Clarence & Thomas Whittle, authors of The Gold House trilogy
Prepare to be astounded, shocked, and thoroughly engrossed by this incredible true story that John Clarence & Thomas Whittle have meticulously, rigorously, and brilliantly researched and written. Edit911 could not be more proud of having been chosen to edit this blockbuster trilogy.
The product of 8 years of research and writing, The Gold House trilogy has been read and reviewed by prominent authors and scholars who support the charges leveled by the authors against the government and numerous individuals. The books are packed with photos, endnotes, and an index and they are available on Nook, Kobo, Amazon–Kindle, iBookstore, and in a limited hardback first edition, which are available at www.victoriopeak.com.
Working with John was a great experience for me [Marc D. Baldwin, PhD, Owner of Edit911, Inc.]. Because of the magnitude and importance of his huge project, we talked many times on the phone and exchanged dozens of emails to be sure my editors and I fully understood his editing objectives. The end result is a trilogy beyond the reader’s wildest imagination —they blow the lid off a conspiracy of silence in this extraordinary story of government corruption that rivals Watergate.
Needless to say, John and his co-author Tom are extremely pleased with Edit911’s work on their project.
In John’s own words: “The first thing that must be resolved when you begin writing is to determine whether you are writing for yourself, or if you wish to have your ideas and thoughts shared with others…and eventually criticized. If you are merely writing for yourself you really don’t need an editor. But if you want your book to reach the widest possible audience, you need an editor.”
“One reason that I decided to contact Marc Baldwin at Edit 911 was that I came to realize that I was deeper in the woods when I finish writing the books than I was when I started. The Gold House trilogy is a set of complex stories that had to be meticulously researched, but because of the subject matter it was important to stay with it: do the research, compile it, look for corroboration, and then begin writing. I finally found my way out of the woods after turning the final draft over to Edit911. It was the smartest thing I did, aside from writing the books. Shortly afterward Marc returned the manuscripts and it was then that I realized that writing a book is only the first step, and the other steps begin and end with your editor and later a good proofreader.”
“Here is what I learned when I surrendered my manuscripts to Edit911: never write yourself into the story unless absolutely necessary; use simple words to get your point across; never say in ten words what can be said in five; avoid repetitiveness; be honest with your writing; present your work for editing when you have exhausted on resource material that adds substance to the story you are telling; and at all times be honest with yourself when you write about others. These are the lessons I learned from Marc Baldwin at Edit911. His work is extraordinary and has made my work that much better.”
I thank John for his kind words and I also predict that The Gold House will be a major motion picture and result in a Congressional investigation. That’s how big and important this true story is.
