… along come some more edits to spoil the ride. Although Anne (my editor) had warned me she was aiming for a quick turnaround on the Dangerous Games edits (the 4th Riley book), I wasn’t actually expecting them to hit me Friday morning. And what’s more, after reading the edit letter, there’s going to be a few massive changes (bringing Gautier and Kellen into the story more, taking out some characters and scenes that ‘float’ and really don’t add anything to the story.) I’ve got just over a month to finish them, which is usually more than enough time, but with RT in the middle of it, it might be a little tight. So, of course, what choofs along in the mail Friday afternoon? You guessed it–the copy edits for Kissing Sin. Thankfully, the copy edits aren’t actually that hard to do–just a matter of checking the marked corrections, and answering the editorial questions where necessary. They want it back by the 16th, so that means I’m going to have to get them off Monday or Tuesday at the latest. So, if you don’t hear from me for a couple of days, I’m head down, bum up doing the edits.
and for those who play the numbers game, I’m currently sitting at 200 pages done on Destiny. Half way there–woohoo!
