Almost Adept on the way to release #1

A few days ago, I got a galley proof of my novel Almost Adept from my publisher, Burst Books. All the editing has been done already, so I couldn’t do any rewrites, just check for errors and fill an errata sheet. I read it, and it made me unhappy. I would’ve written so many passages differently now, but it’s too late. Why didn’t I see those problems before? Extraneous adverbs, awkward sentences, wrong word choices. Nothing major, but details make all the difference. One of the reasons, I suppose, is that the text is in a different font and format than the version I worked on with my editor. With my second novel, I’m going to change the font during the editing process and see what jumps at me.

And I still don’t have a cover for this novel. I’m so impatient to see what the artist will come up with.

    stabs at your heart doesn’t it. Don’t worry. I’m sure few, if any will notice. I like the font change idea. I’ll have to give that a try.

    You are most critical of your own work. Some of the top romance authors put out second editions of their books to improve their stories. I can promise you will love your cover. Champagne Burst has some of the best.
