It has arrived and I am thrilled with the amazing edit that Balboa Press have given me. The great thing is that I can agree or disagree with their suggestions.
All or most (99%) of the 'grammar' ones I am certainly agreeing with; but some of the others I am not.
I am going to keep Selectors and Creators with capital letters. I have also in reading it so carefully picked up a few 'time' issues - like arriving in the morning and being told 'Good evening'.
I have written, read, reread and re-written this novel over and over and even now I am finding things to correct and improve.
I have a 2 week deadline to get it back to Balboa (recommended) but I am taking it as ordered and then it is onto the next step a 'proof' copy.
Tonight I have completed the first three chapters - it is such a powerful feeling to know that this is my work, my writing, my own creation and one day - My Book.
