That’s right gang, I’m in edits! I’ve always been a “Can we knock this out in one draft?’ kind of gal and editing is just…. ugh. It’s NECESSARY, but I dislike it intently. Interestingly enough, I’m editing a friend’s work at the same time and I don’t loathe editing her stuff the way I do my own! what’s that all about?

I got some books on editing to help me work through this intense dislike. If I want to be successful as an author, I’ve got to be good at editing. Simple spell check and a once over doesn’t cut it.

So, book 3 is currently at about 96000 words and I imagine I’ll add about 2000 through editing. I have to add at least one scene as the BFF has gotten back to me and said she felt like a part was missing. There may also be dribs and drabs as I go. it DOES end on a bit of a cliffhanger, so as soon as I’m done editing book 3, I’m moving onto book 4! The goal for 2015 is to write TWO books – book 4 in Covencraft and then finish my werewolf gothic romance. You know. That one I started in 2013. lol.

    YESSSSS. I’m so excited to read book 3! Good luck with editing. You’re an awesome writer so I’m sure you’ll nail it. & Lots of luck on your goal to finish two books this year (I’m seriously having a bit of a fangirl moment right now thinking about it. lol).

    Editing can be tough, but it’s one of the most important parts! I have open time if you’d like me to take a look at it. Feel free to email me!

    Love the series, it’s great news that there’ll be two books this year.
