I'm Published!

My brother is now working for Benchmark Reviews writing articles on computer equipment. The only problem is he can't write. I can't count how many being verbs he had (which I did not try at all to remove because it was so long), the same repeated openings, transitions, and verbs, and not to mention poor grammar (oh, the commas!). But he's a smarty, and he has good things to say, so I just made him sound as smart as he is. I put enough of my own effort in (about two hours worth), that I was actually mentioned as the editor*! He insisted to his boss that I am included, and now, I'm published! Sorta. It's not my original work, but a good half of it is mine. Hope I didn't burst anyone's misplaced bubble.

*I am named by my true name, Allison Downing, not my alias, Emery Grey, there.


  1. I'm so happy for you! :)

  2. That sounds like fun!
    Congrats lolz.
    When you write do you always use your alias?

    and please check out my blog, if you have time, at

  3. @Writing Junkie - I am so sorry for not responding to you for so long! I never saw your comment until today, so sorry about that.

    Yes, I'm not very fond of my name, but for the purposes of that website article (I have to use the same last name as my brother, after all), I let them use my real name that time. I'd like to establish my alias firmly on the internet before it ever gets used in the real world.
