I thought it might be time to log an update, for the historical record.
I've been hard at work on a number of revisions since I signed with Sara. Most of these were born from her feedback, which has been fantastic and insightful. Right now I'm putting the finishing touches on the final chapter, and in a few days I'll finally be able to hand her the full manuscript.
Line edits are next, and then, fingers-crossed, submission! We're shooting for Sept. 1st, which is a deadline I set for motivational reasons more than anything.
Final word-count, for anyone interested in such things, will be roughly 145,000.
