How are you all doing?
I thought I would give you all an update on my Book 1 Cursed. As you know I am editing it still. This is a slow process for me as I work full time so I am having to do my editing in my spare time as I’ve printed the manuscript out to edit.
I have been struggling to find time at the moment, but after a few weeks of hardly being able to do any I have actually done it! I have finished the editing on the printed out version, now I need to type up these changes and then work on the cover designs to put to vote (so keep an eye out).
I have found that printing it out has identified simple mistakes I missed a hundred times reading it on screen! I was so shocked as on the very first page was a sentence with a word repeated twice when it should have only been there once. I have re-read my manuscript tons of times on screen and my partner and sister have read it also and all of us missed it because it was “the”.
I was so pleased I printed it out as this gave me a new perspective on my work. It is surprising how just looking at it in a different format makes so much difference!
I now need my discipline back to get on with typing up the edits so I can sort out sending it to the publishers!
On that note, I will be posting soon about my cover choices. Please can you all make an effort to vote as your opinions are very important to me.
I will also have the choices on my Facebook (see contact me page) if you would like to vote that way.
Choices should be coming Monday 12th Nov!
