Ahh…..

WOW! What a whirlwind couple of weeks. Recovering from surgery, getting back to road biking, and plowing through Wasteland edits.

It’s an exciting time in the whole writing-to-publication process right now. Exciting, but challenging. I can’t lie.

I have a fantastic editor at Crescent Moon Press, and her suggestions really helped strengthen the novel. I’ve finished the edits she suggested **happy dance** and now the story is “resting” before I give it one last look before sending it back to her.

I can’t wait for the world to meet my four-hundred-year-old half-demon.Β Lots of time before the book hits the shelves, but still, we’re one step closer.

While getting back onto my bike this past week, I got to see a SWEET sunrise. So, I had to post a sunrise picture. I just love them. This one I took!

Hope you all get some time to relax this weekend and maybe even take in a sunrise or sunset.

  1. Lynn,
    Editing is the most painful but rewarding part of writing. The other day I compared it to child birth. You carry your baby (WIP) growing and nuturing it waiting for that magical day that it will be born (release day), but you also know that birthing that child (editing) will be hard and painful labor. But when you hold it in your hands, it is the most beautiful creation and all that work and pain fades away. πŸ™‚
    Congratulations, can wait to read Wasteland.

    • I have always loved editing. Watching the story morphing into something strong and shiny!! It is difficult, though. I’ve never given birth, but I can see how you’d equate it to that!!!

  2. Beautiful picture. And congratulations on your upcoming novel. I hope it does well and you find good success. Any word as to when it will be scheduled for release?

    • Hi, Eddie. Thanks for stopping by. We don’t have a secure release date yet. We’re just through first round edits now. As soon as I hear the news, I’ll be posting it πŸ™‚

  3. Four-hundred-year-old half-demon. Wonder if I know him, we’re about the same age. Or at least at times it feels like I’m that old. Bet he saw sunrises just as glorious as this one.
