Sorry I've been MIA this week. I was up to my neck in edits on Calling Home, my December 5 sweet romance release with Noble Romance Publishing. One thing you gotta know - nitty-gritty and I do not go together at all, so edits are always, always a pain. After days of staring at those word-filled pages so much my brain got static burn, today I just finished with the formatting and looking at that little backward-P paragraph sign and all its space dots on the page made me cross-eyed (yikes, passive voice! See, it's obvious I just came from an editing round!).
That being said, I cannot stress how much my editor over at Noble is a Godsend and a wonderful editor and great lady too. She always asks the pertinent questions and her suggestions are spot on. Thanks to her involvement and expertise, I now have a spick-and-span , shiny story ready to go. :) She prodded and poked and this led me to add a little over 6K of improvements to the ms.
So how's that for progress, people? 6K and a 50K-novel edited fully? And don't forget I have the hyenas at home too this week. Go me!
And now I'm wiped. Totally gotta destress (Burn Notice tonight?), and yeah, I think I deserve some Nutella ice cream now. Or a Death By Chocolate Magnum. TGIF and soooo looking forward to the weekend now.
What are your plans? I'll be doing... nothing! Tada!
It's been a mad, mad week, and speaking of... wonder if Angela Guillaume had a week from Looney Tunes land too.
Have a lovely weekend, peeps! XOXO
From Mauritius with love,
