News from my Editor

1

After sitting on pins and needles for the last couple weeks, I’ve finally heard back from my editor.  She emailed me the line-edited manuscript with the editorial letter and the copy for the query letter and the book description for Amazon to come tomorrow.

All I can say is: Yay!  Her comments so far were very positive.  The zombies sufficiently creeped her out, and the story pulled her in all the way to the end 🙂 

This preliminary praise was a huge relief to me.  I’ve worked hard writing and extensively revising, and I feel like I have a good story.  I’m no Dostoevsky, but I think it’s a fun, exciting young adult read.  However, I know that I can’t be objective about my own work, and in the back of my mind, I’ve been wondering if I think it’s good, but maybe it really sucks.  Now I know at least one other person, a professional in the publishing field no less, things it’s good 🙂

In other news, I’m in the process of contracting an awesome designer to create the cover for my novel 🙂  More on that in the next week, and I’m getting really excited to share my novel soon!
