Goodbye, My Friend

I received sad news today. Alan Seeger, who I viewed as a friend, but was also the editor of my novel, passed away yesterday. The writing community as a whole has lost a member of their community. He was not only and editor, but also an author in his own right. He mostly edited horror anthologies, but he had written and published a number of his own works as well.

I had only known Alan for a few short months, but in that time we formed a friendship and working relationship. I was thrilled when he told me that he enjoyed my novel. When I went through all of his edits, the fact that he found very few flaws really encouraged me as well. I can honestly say his input and advice will encourage me to strive even harder to become a published author.

Alan will be greatly missed by all of those who have had the pleasure to know and work with him. Rest in peace.
