So, I’ve moved on to the next phase of my process of getting this book out into the world: Beta readers.
I have a lot. Seven, actually. Too many, probably, but I’m excited to hear everyone’s opinions. Excited and terrified. So far, I haven’t heard back from anyone other than general “so far, so good” comments. These are nice but leaves a lot up in the air. I’m hoping to have Draft Four, a.k.a. The Querying Draft, ready by the end of this year, so I’ve asked for feedback by the end of November. This is going to be a long month.
In return, I’m Beta reading for a few of them. Everyone is so talented. This is what I have to go up against in the pile of submissions for agents. Again, terrifying.
Anyway, that’s where I am. Sitting and waiting. In the meantime, I’m working on novels two and three. I’m about two-thirds of the way through novel two, so it’s really my focus. Novel three is more of a pet project that I’m working on in my spare spare time, which is sparse (like the novel itself).
Hope you update you soon when I get back all my amazing comments! Thanks for reading.
