As I said before, The End isn’t often the end. As so is the case with my first book.
I had an author I met online read my draft manuscript and give me feedback. It was great feedback, just hard to hear. She gave me some great tips to enhance my craft and make my words stronger.
But the biggest thing she told me was that the story struggled with hero ARC and a couple of other things. That gets to the heart of the story and is harder to hear, and harder to adjust.
But I have. I’m not done with my major revision but my story is already stronger. Of course, the daughter of the heroine is 4 years older now, and they just moved to town instead of six months ago, but these are the types of things that are allowing me to build up the tension between the hero and heroine quicker and stronger. Things that will make this a better story.
It goes to the editor in two weeks. I can’t wait to share it with you!
