Hey, guess what. I did something. Nothing much. Just, you know, FINISHED THIS FREAKIN' EDIT. I'm so freakin' excited! I got to see "The End" again! I just need to tighten up a couple little things and then it's off to beta readers!
Man, I've been editing this for so long, re-writing, cutting words, and fixing stuff as I went along, but here I am! Now, this doesn't mean the book's ready to go to an agent. Like I said before I need to have a new string of Beta Readers take a look at it and then I have to decide what scenes are less vital to the whole thing. Why? Because after all that, I've only gotten it down to 137,000 from 144,000.
That's a lot of words cut, but it's not nearly enough. So, after I my readers get back to me with thoughts on what scenes didn't seem to be important, I'll be removing them. Man... that's going to be tough. But hey, I'm closer now than I've ever been to getting published. Step by step, day by day.
On that note... who wants to read The Paladin? You can hit me up on my Contact Page, social media (links at the bottom right of the page,) or even right here in the comment section.
