First, I would like to thank all my lovely beta readers. You guys are the best! It means the world that you took time out of your schedule to help me. I’ve gotten such wonderful feedback that has helped me to shape my story into something better. Some of my betas are still reading through it and I can’t wait to receive the rest of their feedback.
From the feedback I have received, I’ve been fixing up my manuscript. So far, it’s already gotten better. I added a prologue, cut a chapter and weaved parts of it into other chapters, cut part of a chapter, added a few new scenes as well as extended 3 chapters, and I plan to extend at least 1 more. So far, the process has been long, but I know it will be worth it in the end.
Since I made so many changes, I decided I want to get a second round of beta readers. I have about 22 chapters left that I need to apply notes and edits. Sometime after I’m done, I’ll put up a post requesting more betas, so keep an eye out if you’re interested.
All my betas have said positive things thus far about my story and it has made me so happy. I always doubted my story, said it’s nothing special, and that no one will like it. But now I’m so excited to share my story with everyone. I’m hoping to publish sometime next year. I’m aiming for summer, but I can’t say for sure.
In other news: I made one of my pinterest boards public after it’s been private for months. It just contains pictures of people who look like or look similar to my characters.
I’m really looking forward to finishing up this story and starting the next installment.
Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
