I have been on an editing rampage. My young adult novel is being clipped and trimmed to within an inch of its life. I have no idea how it’s reading, but I believe in the end the changes will make it stronger. I’ve never edited a book this way. It’s interesting to work in a non-linear manner. I’ve brought chapters forward, moved some back. Lobbed the head off thousands of words, leaving their discarded carcasses bleeding and twitching in the trash bin. It’s been slow going, but quite productive. I may have to try this again in the future.
In the meantime, PHANTOM WARRIORS: ARCTOS is burning up the Kindle bestseller lists. I am THRILLED that readers are enjoying the book. I was nervous about how it was going to be received.
Next week my urban fantasy novel, THE GHOST HUNTER CHRONICLES: SOLOMON’S SEALS will be FREE on Amazon for three days, starting on the 13th. If you haven’t checked it out yet, you might want to grab it. (WARNING: This book is NOT a spicy romance. There are romantic elements, but they’re not the focus of the story.)
Now back to edits.
