I’ve been tossing my first chapter around for feedback (shameless begging for encouragement) as I wrestle further into my “final” read through before sending to my last round of readers and this is one comment I got back:
This chapter is full of tension and intrigue even though the only real action is a woman stumbling around and a man digging a hole.
And I laughed, because I’d never seen it that simply laid out.
Thank you to all my repeat-volunteers to read the manuscript. I feel honored that you would be willing to plunge back in after your (already thoughtful and thorough) investment.
My High and far off [goal], O Best Beloved, is to have the “finished” product distributed by the second week of July. Sooner will be a bonus, but I’m trying not to get my hopes up.
