I just sent off the edited manuscript for copyediting! 🎉 Overall, the story did not change significantly. Some scenes were tightened (or expanded!), but overall the plot didn’t change. In fact, I think these are the lightest edits in the whole Rogue Queen series. The word count grew by around 1,200 words. TQT was already the longest book in the series by far and now it’s just a bit longer. :)
I’m glad the story didn’t need major changes because I’m still on deadline for New Shiny and I am B E H I N D. It’s due at the end of the year and it’s going to be close. So if you don’t hear much from me for the next six weeks, that’s why.
Also, how are we possibly six weeks from the end of the year?!?!
I won’t be sad to see 2020 in the rearview, and I’ll certainly be happier once New Shiny is done and sent off. Writing this year has been a bit of a struggle (along with everything else). I hope you all are doing well and staying safe.
Some good news: if you’ve been waiting for the edited book instead of reading the serial, your wait is almost over! TQT comes out three weeks from today!
I know this year has been hard for everyone, so this is a zero pressure sales pitch, but if you’ve been enjoying the serial and have a few bucks to spare, I would love it if you preordered TQT, too. If not, no worries, that’s why I’m posting it for free. 💕
The only difference (besides the editing), is the edited book will have a short epilogue that won’t be posted on the site, and it will include all of the [redacted] scenes, so you get a little bonus for buying the book.
And if you preorder, it’ll show up on your ereader like magic! :)
Available December 8!
(Print books will be available, but closer to/at release.)
