The seasons are slowly starting to change in my neck of the woods. We usually get full foliage in late October but are starting to see bursts of golden yellow and fiery orange. It’s magical.
My manuscript is about to undergo some major changes, too. Upon careful review of the feedback from betas, there’s a long road ahead to get Thicker Than Water where it needs to be prior to self-publishing.
Let’s do this! I’m thrilled to announce that I’ve partnered with Lauren Taylor Shute Editorial for a developmental edit. Knowing that my team is spear-headed by someone with heavy Big Five experience gives me the confidence I need to ensure TTW is the best possible product before taking it to market.
Just as the trees will soon be barren, my manuscript will shed the parts of itself no longer necessary for it to thrive. Scenes will undoubtedly be cut. Ditto for excess words. Keeping in theme with all things spooky this time of year, many (many) darlings will be killed.
But guess what? I know it will all be worth it.
After a winter of revisions, TTW will come into its own spring. Just in time for tourist season…
