Sorry for my blogging absence.
I’ve been glued to my screen and chair while doing the final edit of my second e-book, Love in the Vines.
Now well and truly down the road of my 5th edit, I can happily say, it’s shaping up to be a great read.
As a reader I know how irritating editing gaffes can be, so I figure it pays to spend a lot of time poring over every word.
I’m on a tight, correct that, very tight budget. My mother and sister (the wonderful Coby) are proving to be worth their weight in editing gold. Their combined editing skills shine.
The other week I emailed the rough draft to a couple of friends to read. And, without giving them any leading questions or pointers, all my message said was – “If you have time, please read and let me know what you think. The kicker is, I’d love to have your feedback in three days time. So that leaves you the weekend, plus one day.”
Well to my surprise they read it and shared incredible feedback, sending me back to re-work, edit, and make the changes suggested.
Tomorrow is my final word for word read through…..hopefully by the weekend or early next week, Love in the Vines will be in the safe hands of Amazon Kindle.
That is, if I can master and survive the Kindle file conversion and upload.
PS. The cover design is still in progress. It looks like the words Food | Wine | Love | Betrayal outside of the heart won the most Facebook and Blog votes.
