Well after what seemed like a never-ending process, the first round of edits from Four Corners are complete and back to the publisher! It was a really eye-opening process and I learned a lot about my writing style (both good and bad!), and realized that I have quite a bit of work cut out for me on book two. Though I am going to take a bit of a much needed break  from editing for a few days because I am headed to North Carolina for the Rocktoberfest Half Marathon (yes, I get that running 13.1 miles may not constitute a "break").

The weather here is finally considering cooling off, though it seems like it hasn't totally made up it's mind. Temps are still hovering in the upper 80s, but we had a few days of fall-like weather that make me think that it is a possibility in our future, plus the rain finally stopped! Got to go on a nice trail ride yesterday for the first time in weeks. Thought I was going to lose my mind! I've even started running at lunch time so I don't get rained out from my runs. Those that live in rainy weather- I don't know how you do it!

October is going to be a busy month, gone this weekend and then off to visit my Aunt and Uncles new place on the "west coast" (what floridian's call the gulf), then kitchen reno starts the last week in October! All this house stuff has shown me the appeal to just hiring a designer or trying to get on a TV show to have someone else do it, but I guess it will be that much more satisfying when we are done. Going to finally make a trip back up to Pittsburgh at the end of the month to visit with college friends. It has been way to many years since I've seen them, I can't wait!


Before I know it, it will be the holidays already. Whew, where did this year go? And hopefully around that time my book will come out! It is really starting to feel more real. The cover is almost done and I can't wait for you all to see it. It's crazy to think that this long journey is slowly culminating into being able to actually hold my published novel.
I can't wait for you all to do the same.

After the first round completed it is clear that how to change my writing style and what are the things we must do to correct my writing. This is really a best program which helped me a lot to know what is good and bad in the writings.

I was re-editing my first book 3 times in a row to satisfy my publisher. Yeah it was an interesting experience!
