I should call myself an editor
My editor, Julia Petrkis, has said I should stake a claim to being an editor. I have baulked at the idea because to me this means I would have some extensive knowledge in editing. However, over the last few years - with Julia's help - my writing/ editing has improved by bounds. My editing has improved so much, I see errors other people miss. The latest was yesterday. I forget which book it was on, but it was a double statement. The statement read "The last ever book, he wrote." 
There is no need to say "Last ever," apart from the term being bad grammar, by stating it is the last book, you are telling people there are no books by this author, after this date.
