dripping pen

Linkage and updates

Just finished the substantive edits on SHIFT HAPPENS. Thanks again for the great betas angela_fiddler and Joan Leacott. There was some cutting, and it's gone down to 83,000 words. But that's still respectable, right?

The NightOwl has promised me a line edit, next. Lucky for me her computer's in the shop so no doubt she'll be just delighted to get 300 pages and a red pen handed to her at Dinner-and-a-Movie night. ;-D

In the meantime, I'll work on the synopsis. What do you mean only put in what's important? It's all important or I wouldn't have put it in the book! ::sigh::
