This afternoon, I sent the edits for The Queen’s Advantage to my lovely agent for review. The manuscript grew by about 7k words, up to just under 50k. This edit was the most difficult I’ve done, and I’m not entirely sure why. Part of it is because I’m under deadline for book three, so everything is stressful, but this book just did not want to be edited.
I think it’s improved, but I’m so close to it and so tired that I’m not even sure anymore. :/
I feel like I need to get some beta feedback, but I’m under too much of a time crunch to do an open beta call. So if you’ve beta read for me in the past and want to have another go, or if I’ve specifically said I’m putting your name on the list, then send me an email with the subject line “TQA Beta” and I’ll get you a copy.
As before, you need to be able to electronically mark up a PDF. I need feedback by the end of the month at the latest, so please only email if that works with your schedule.
In return for this thankless job, you’ll have my eternal love and a mention in the acknowledgments. :)
Everyone else: please don’t email me. I’m not adding anyone this round. I’ll do another open call at some point, but I just don’t have the capacity to do it right now. I have to make many, many words on book three.
