Another Round of Edits–>Done!

Well I think I might be finally done with my agent-recommended edits! It’s been a long haul–since October–but after many changes made and pages added, I think the manuscript is ready to be pitched to publishers!!! I’ve spent the last two and a half days carefully reading over the three hundred pages, trying to catch every last inconsistency and grammatical error. Whew! That’s a relief. Now it’s in the hands of my agent, and hopefully I’ll have some good news before too long. (If I do, it’ll likely mean yet another round of edits… It’s the way of the publishing world.)

In other news, I’m still watching the Olympics (Apolo tonight!), working my way through several library-requested novels, and trying to decide which book to review for next week’s Book Review Club post. Very little of interest.
