Courting Darkness Second Draft

Summer is drawing to a close, and with its passing I’ve moved on to the next stage of my book! I’m happy to announce I put the finishing touches on the second draft of Courting Darkness today and am moving on the the critiquing phase. This means, for the first time since its conception, my manuscript will be in the hands of readers other than myself. Hopefully I’ll get lots of great feedback so I can continue to strengthen my story as I polish it up in round 3 of the editing process.

On that note: If you are interested in critiquing this manuscript, shoot me an email. I’m always looking for good critique partners with whom to exchange work. 😉


Courting Darkness, draft 1

It was a lot of really early mornings, but I did it. I’ve completed the first draft of Courting Darkness!

I made a list of stray thoughts and details as I wrote, things that need to be tweaked or added, and I’m going to start right in on that, but I wanted to take a moment here to jump for joy. (It’s hard to dance and shout when the rest of the house is still sleeping.)

I’m excited to get right back into it, and to continue the story in book three. Here’s hoping July is as successful as June!
