(Listening to - Bon Jovi - It's My Life) [Haven't heard it recently, it's just stuck in my head for some reason]
After much tweaking, rewriting, and swearing like a sailor, the edits to Pyro are done! Finally!
The end word count is a hair under 71k, which I'm happy with. It was looking like it was going to be a lot shorter at one point, which would have been less than desirable.
The downside to having finished is that I now have to write another damn synopsis (and query). Bah!
It's bad enough having to fit a story into 70,000 words, never mind squishing said story into 1-2 pages of double spaced 12pt TNR.
Well, more accurately - It's easy enough to squish a 70k story into 1-2 pages. What's difficult is making the thing readable. ;)
In Other News -
Strand is out April 4th!!!
I've been waiting so long for this! It was accepted for publishing a little before A Reaper's Tale came out, and while that's only around a year, which isn't particularly long in publishing, it's dragged. ;)
Still, only a couple of weeks left to go. I hope you'll at least view the excerpt on my sweetie's blog HERE, even if the genre isn't your thing. You never know, you may enjoy it. Why deprive oneself of enjoyment?
