This has been quite an experience, having my book edited and me editing it. My editor and I are trying to hone the book into one that you will ejoy, savor, and hopefully read again and again. I am learning a few new tricks of the trade and since I've already written three more books, I am able to apply what I've learned.
Editing is painful...as an author, you feel that everything you've written, needs to be included. I am now seeing that the editing process, although painful, is chopping a lot of the unnecessary, to stick to the focus of the story.
