We’ve almost finished the first major edit of ALLIANCE following initial editorial feedback. Our deadline is Friday, 14 August.
Based on the first book, we’ll have at least another round of edits after that, possibly more, but for the moment we’re almost done with this draft.
This is one time we back up the changes frequently. Sometimes two and three times a day if we’ve worked a lot on the draft, because we’re at that stage where we’ve done the major rewrite, and now our changes are little more than tweaks. Cleaning up the text, fixing typos. If we lose those tweaks we’d never be able to reproduce them, we’d just have to redo the work.
As the deadline approaches my housekeeping gets more and more … rushed is a polite word. So come 14 August, I’m going to clean house.
After that, it’s back to book three.
