First pass edit done, opening chapter reworked after being 'snarkified'.
It's a satisfying feeling. I'm not as giddy as when I'd completed "Wings," but a first book is like a first love.
"MindBlind" is a grittier and more tightly plotted story. I really enjoyed mapping this one out.
Next step--feedback from alpha readers. My crit group has been wonderful with chapter by chapter feedback, but the nature of that process doesn't allow for critique of the flow and pacing of the whole story.
I have 2 or 3 readers whom I trust to be utterly honest. I look forward to their comments and will incorporate their thoughts into the second pass edit.
Then it will be time to start the agent quest.
