Author Annabelle Charbit Bergenfeld Prepares For Publication In 2012

DALLAS, TX: Professional developmental editor Susan Mary Malone announced that another book she edited has been accepted by a traditional publishing company for publication. The book, “A Life Lived Ridiculously” written by Annabelle Charbit Bergenfeld, is slated for publication in April 2012.

The author, Ms Bergenfeld, stated: “Susan Malone helped me transform ‘A Life Lived Ridiculously’ from a partial story with potential into the hilarious, fast-paced comedy thriller that it is today.  Working with Susan has been delightful, as she was always encouraging and never let me give up.  When Susan takes you on, it’s because she believes in your story and in your talent. Susan will not let you get away with anything less than your best. As such, she is not just your editor, but your partner too.  I have been very lucky to have worked with Susan. Without her knowledge and support, ‘A Life Lived Ridiculously’ would not have found its publisher.”

Susan Mary Malone stated: “I’m really proud of this one. First of all it’s Mainstream, which in today’s market is VERY hard to sell! But most of all I’m really proud to see an author take a great idea and turn it into a really great book. I think this one will go far, so we’ll see come 2012.”
