Final stretch

Some loverly news to report, we're almost done with edits for The Soul Seekers. Remember a few weeks back I sent off the latest round, but only after knocking my head against the desk every few seconds because of some very difficult cuts? I had gone back and forth trying to decide whether or not to cut a favorite scene per editor's comments. I felt it was a great scene, but in the end I decided to take it out to move the action along. I pretty much went over this for two weeks before making the decision. So anyway, yesterday evening I get an email from Kristine saying all changes were approved, except one section. I open the document thinking she had some random scene (like the attic scene--lots of backstory), but it's the scene, the one I had stressed over. She put it back in saying she liked it too much to see it go and for me to just cut it down a little. And she added a big smily face to show she knew of the minor heart attack I'd have upon opening the document. Oh, editor humor! So . . . yay : )  I'm so happy that the scene is back and that we're almost done. Three years of work, folks. It's a strange feeling knowing I won't be revising or editing after this last round. Mostly I feel relieved and happy.

  3. I'm glad you got to keep your favorite scene! Is this book with a publisher or agent? What publisher is it?

  5. Aw, thank you so much everyone!

    Angelina, my publisher is WiDo. They're still small in the ranks of publishing, but the books are top quality. I was extremely proud to have been picked up by them. I don't know if they're taking submissions right now (I know you didn't ask, but just in case) but it probably says on their website.
