I’m somehow stuck on a ‘rag-to-riches’ fairy tale theme, thinking about poor little orphan Annie and poor little ol’ me. Although I want to make some comparisons, like the both of us having the ability to sing and dance (in this case I want to learn), the reality is that there are more differences than I would have to account for (e.g. I whine about editing anything–Annie, doesn’t).
Apart from that I want to share some additional news about my book editing. So far, I managed to banish my wicked ugly step-chapters to Neverland where they can no longer annoy any possible reader. After glossing over some of the chapters, I realize there is only one essential ingredient that I have not inserted directly… body language. Although I’m suppose to do something like that on a consistent basis, I find my characters need a few of those every couple of pages (instead of every couple of chapters).
Hopefully, I will be able to continue my smooth editing with transferring my edits between chapters 11-15 with little or no major need for plastic surgery. The only other major hurdles to overcome are chapters 16, 28-29, and the Epilogue. While most people are eagerly waiting for responses, I’m waiting to come to a point where I have less than five chapters to go and create some additional buzz about my book.
If I manage to get that close, I should be able to have my press release posted so everyone who wants to know about the book can and will be able to know when to buy it. I thank all of you again for taking the time to read my posts and keep up to date.
