To say it has been a whirlwind of a time, would be an understatement. You think that writing a book is the hard part, then you say getting it published is. Only after you sign on the dotted line do you realize the real work is going to being.
When I originally wrote my book, I had intended it for a certain purpose. I build the content around that purpose, including my word count. However, by the time the book was ready to publisher, the Lord was going to take it another direction. Which meant, editing. Not a few little edits, but more of a “you are going to cut this book in half” edits.
How does one even begin to tear apart the thing you poured your heart and soul into? Trying to pick and choose what is important enough to remain, and what can be sacrificed on the cutting room floor…. cruel.
But, it had to be done. The book is going to be better for it.
And now, there is so much more to do.
