I have just finished a sprint at the end of the novel-writing and -editing marathon, but by the grace of some serious chair-butt and a week off work, I have submitted Eva to the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Contest! Thanks to my husband, it even has a good title: Tiny Glitches.
Pause for celebration. Go on, get out of your chair and dance with me!
In the last week, I cut over 11,000 words from my novel, rewrote the final two chapters and the first chapter, added in and refined the magic throughout the entire novel, and polished the manuscript, reading and editing the entire novel at least three times through, and some chapters at least five times.
