Voices Carry is finished and I am working my way through the first set of edits that need to be done on it.
This novel was a really interesting one to write. I went through quite a few cups of tea and at least some hunks of hair have gone missing, especially since the edit process has begun.
Why? To be honest, I hate editing. I have no problem admitting that to you, dear readers, because I am sure you understand, especially if you have written a novel in the past. (or, perhaps, a thesis! ack!)
I’d much rather be slogging my way through the next set of words of another novel, instead of getting my paws grime-covered and bloody from editing. I especially hate cutting out words. These are my babies! My preciouses!
That being said, however, what must be done must be done. I am hopeful the novel will be in the final stages and ready for Beta Reading by the end of February, so I can have those of you kind folks that have indicated you’d like to beta read the novel start on things. I promise I will not take too long to get it into your waiting hands!
If you would like to be a Beta Reader, I do have another couple of slots open. Just let me know if you are willing to help out. The only thing I ask is that you are someone that has already read Silent Steps, so you can have an idea of what the story is all about. It is, after all, a sequel, and is not meant to be a stand-alone work.
If you have not read Silent Steps yet, you can pick it up from my website, and if you’d like to check out what it is all about, I do have the first chapter available to read! On Original Wolds there are also free short stories and information set in the world of Takiq for you to enjoy!
