My first book has been partially edited, but my first chapter is still iffy.

Second book has been sent to be partially edited, too.

Thanks to those who have been supporting me recently.

Editing update

I'm still waiting for the first batch to my first ever written novel.

My editor has said maybe this Friday. Is it normal for 27,000 words to take twenty days or more to edit?

I think it's due to her being busy trying to write her own novels at the same time. Which is understandable, but it's hard for me to have to wait, haha.

I feel too anxious to write at the moment.

New layout and update

Okay, so here is my new layout. It's good but not great, but it will do for now. At least until I have some theme going.

I am currently having four of my books edited. The first hundred pages of one very long teen paranormal romance and fifty pages of my other three novels. This is so that I can decided whether I want to submit before attempting to self publish.

My editor did me an amazing free sample. She has now been enlisted as the editor for all the books, and I hope she can help me to improve the beginnings of each, which I believe to be the weakest.

Introducing characters and story-lines doesn't seem to be my strength. I prefer my writing from midway, where all the action begins. :)

I am getting the first half of editing back Sunday. Eeek!!

My editor says she loves my story, and can't wait to read the rest of my novels. I'm finding that hard to believe. Maybeif I wasn't paying her to edit my novel, I would be smiling more about that comment.

But heck, it's still a big compliment regardless.

I hope you are all progressing nicely with your novels and projects.

Hello writers and readers!!

Hello all.

Here I will be discussing my plans, current projects and days I just want to ramble and rant about the tedium of editing. I know all writers understand what I'm talking about, namely Elena Ahmadi Gestoso...

Anyhoo, three of my novels are complete. I hope. I am currently looking for the ideal editor to help me polish, reduce, and spring clean my babble.

So what do I have???

Three teenage paranormal romances, surprise, surprise, and a contemporary romance.

I will keep you updated on my writing.

And I hope many of you will join me on my journey to publication.

Bye for now.
