Writer Wednesday

I’ve finally made it to the end! I’m doing the final read-through on THE OUTLAW and the muse is so tickled he’s been filling my head of scenes for the next book, which I left hanging half-way through.

Editing has never been fun for me, mainly because I’m so anal about it. I’m terrified of mistakes, of pesky typos and other oddities that it literally takes me weeks to accomplish the task.

Every time one of the test readers mention something, I go back and re-read that part, fixing, tweaking and driving myself insane trying to make it perfect and each time I do, I get this sickening feeling I’ve introduced ‘new’ typos.

The process is so endless for me that when I do send the books out, I don’t rest easy until the first reviews are out. That’s when I read with one eye open, waiting for someone to  mention the glaring typos and all together crap I didn’t catch.

Aside from my fear of typos, I’m extremely proud of this book. It’s everything I wanted it to be when I first envisioned it and I hope all you readers love it as much as I do! We only have 12 days until RELEASE and the ARC’s go out this week which means, it’s time to get excited… and nervous! After talking about this book for months on end, I’m eager to see what you all think. It won’t be long now!

I’ll be back to writing very soon so look for updates on THE GAMBLER in the very near future.

Until next time,
