I know, I know, I’ve been talking about my second novel for a very long time. But there’s a light at the end of the tunnel!
And The Wolf’s Lover has gone slowly, for a lot of reasons (like jobs, kids, and moving across the freaking country). But I think it’s a good story, and I’m excited to release it into the world.
I’m also excited to be at the last step of that journey:
I’ve already picked my story apart for inconsistencies, and gotten advice from a few beta readers.
Now I’ve got all 90,000 words printed and in a three-ring-binder, ready for me to take a red-pen-scalpel to each and every sentence. This is usually the process where I discover I’ve got a real weakness for fragment sentences and saying the same thing about fifty million times.
Yes, the above passage is the preview I posted here.
No, I am never satisfied. 😉
And yes, the editing stage is also where I discover I need more wine…
If you’d like to beta read The Wolf’s Lover, do drop me a line.
And stay tuned for more updates!
