Sweet News

Definite warm fuzzy feeling today . . . my beta reader from Boston, who grew up in Reflections main characters’ neighborhood in the 1970’s LOVES the book! Street cred from the locals! Yeah!

Book 2 Notes

I decided to take one more final pass on my manuscript after checking my editor’s changes. This is a very worthwhile choice, allowing me to tweak a phrase here and there to adjust the voice of the story after all other checking is complete. The bonus is getting all these great ideas for the next book! What fun!

Editing Complete!

Final phase of editing completed, thank you Katharine Vail of Polished Printing!

Now on to the publication phase. Anybody know a good graphic artist for book covers?

My Latest Synopsis Attempt

I was reading up on how to write these, and I now see why most authors are known to dislike this task; condensing a 93,000 word labor of love into 500-800 words, with sensory details and a genuine representation of your style and all major themes. Yikes! Here is my latest attempt. Comments are welcome.

Positive feedback from a great editor is an awesome feeling!
