The deep edit of Spectacle is finished!!! From the last edit to this one, I chopped over 10K words out, and it shines like the top of the Chrysler Building!
Almost exactly three years to the day since I finished the first draft, but I'm done. I don't think I could cut another slice out of her. (Unless, of course, an editor tells me differently, but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.)
Unfortunately, right now, my go-to gals are still working on reading Blink. So...
I'm looking for a few brave and unfettered souls to read this puppy for me. I just need someone to check for typos and errors at this point. I've caught a few as I was editing, but I know I've probably missed a bunch more. If you've got some free time over the next couple weeks, and would like to read Spectacle* (now known officially as Fear Itself), drop me a comment or an e-mail and I'll shoot it over to you.
Let me know. Meanwhile, join in the celebration! :happy dances:
ETA: If you're interested in reading a few of the scenes I've cut from Spectacle, please visit my other blog: Tabula Rasa.
*and I'm not above bribery.
