Finally, finally, finally done!

Yes, I am super excited to say that I have completed the final revision of my current MS. I am exhausted, mentally and physically but it is done!

This was very much a rewrite as opposed to revision. In total, I would say I applied four revisions and this complete rewrite to the book, and oddly enough the word count didn't really move that much. Maybe 2,000 words.

So now, it is out with readers and hopefully soon I can begin the grueling query process. Wish me luck! :)

  5. Laura - thanks! And hopefully when you read it you'll enjoy the changes. Can't wait to read more of LC!

    MD - It feels huge, though I guess that is silly. :) I am not naive though, I know what lies in store and how long the journey can be, but I am so determined to see this thing in print!

  7. Thanks Meadow! It was a lot of work, but I'm one of those that thinks nothing worth having is easy. :)
