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.

  1. I saw your post on the Facebook group "Paranormal Romance" and I just wanted to say hi. I would love to share and critique with you. I'm new to the critiquing thing but I've been trying to connect with other people to better myself as a writer. Hope to hear from you.

  2. I like this layout... very appealing.

    Sounds like you have a lot going on... congratulations!

    I haven't an editor yet for my first novel. I want to do the second draft first. Also thinking about the self-publishing.

I have only just selected an editor, it's making me anxious. I want to submit, before I consider self-publishing. Hope you will continue to read my posts :)
