Hello Dear Readers!
I’m checking in to let you know I’m still alive after my hiatus for book editing.
Here’s my progress report. This last week, I finished my personal edit on Quaking Soul. It took almost 3 weeks longer than I’d planned, but as someone told me recently, most everything takes longer than you think it should. Such is life. Plus, I do believe the extra time did the book good and not harm.
Now the book is out to beta readers. This is both exciting and terrifying. I’d much rather these amazing readers find the issues in the story than a reader down the road after the book’s been published, but hearing feedback can be heart wrenching. This is my book-baby. I’ve labored over it with sweat and tears! Now tear it apart and tell me what’s glaringly wrong with it! (I will now be donning my thick-skin in order to survive this ordeal.)
In the mean time, while I wait for beta reader feedback, I will be working on other book stuff such as the back blurb for the book and cover design. Although difficult in its own way, these things are not as mind intensive as editing. What that means for the blog? I’ll be posting a new adventure next week.
So thank you for your patience! I’ll see you next week for a whole new adventure story.
