The last bits of polish are going into the final chapter of Feathers Fall. It’s hard to write. Then it’s off (hopefully) to get some solid feedback from those willing to read it. A scary moment, the first eyes on that aren’t mine. I wonder how it will go. I wonder how it will go down.
Within 10 pages of the end of the first pass of Feathers Fall. Actually trying to stretch the manuscript (sensibly) out a little bit, adding a bit more description around the place. Hopefully I can make it to full novel length.
Now for the final hurdle, physical print!
In between all this exciting having published Crimson, I still need to make sure I keep the editing of Feathers Fall on track. Well, at least I need to do more than I have doing lately.
And with that last piece of the puzzle, Crimson has been uploaded to Amazon KDP. Almost there!
Has been going slowly. Work has been too busy. Currently staring at chapter 15. Only 5 more to go though (+ external feedback)
So I received the first edits for chapter 1 of Feathers Fall today. There was a mixup in that she used the old pre edited version instead of the latest version I had available. It didn’t matter though because despite my own numerous passes through, pretty much every comment she made as still relevant. It was brutal. And I love it. It’s so good to get another person’s eyes over your work. When you get so familiar with something you really don’t see the flaws, even if they’re obvious.
Curious as always is the difference between Australian and US terminology. Something that seems so obvious to me raises some weird questions. Good times.
With some interpretation, I was able to make all the feedback work for chapter 1. There were some solid improvements. On to chapter 2.
