As it turned out, I was able to keep 80% of my original story. I made some modifications and added more scenes with the heroine and hero to focus the story more on the hero and heroine instead of the other characters.
So what happens now? Well, my editor just finished going through Her Heart’s Desire while I spent my time rewriting and revising The Earl’s Inconvenient Wife. So I’m now going to be in editing mode for two books instead of one, which means, I plan to put all new writing on hold.
I need to read through The Earl’s Inconvenient Wife to smooth it out before I hand it off to my editor. Then I will go to Her Heart’s Desire and see what changes or errors my editor found in it. After that, I send Her Heart’s Desire off to proofreaders. While Her Heart’s Desire is with them, I’ll be working on the changes and corrections my editor found in that book.
Once Her Heart’s Desire is back, I’ll send off The Earl’s Inconvenient Wife to the proofreaders. I’ll then give Her Heart’s Desire a final read through and publish it. After that, I’ll get The Earl’s Inconvenient Wife back, give it the final read through and publish it as well.
Once all of that is done, I should be ready to get serious about new writing again. 😀
And yes, I will be back to doing two more interviews for the suspects who might have kidnapped Dave Larson. I hope to get the next one posted tomorrow, April 30 (my time). I know some of you guys are already at April 30. Here, it’s still April 29.
