I have a love/hate relationship with edits
As particular as I am about correct punctuation, grammar, and getting all the details right, I worry that I missed something. Or that the storyline has a hole.
So I am thrilled that Decadent Publishing contracted my dark paranormal novel, Dead to Rights.
I'd self-pubbed it last year, but hoped an editor could help me kick it up to that next level. (There's always a next level!) Unfortunately, I can't afford to hire an editor.
I just finished first-round edits, and am loving it. And hating it. Grueling as edits can be, I know I'll be happy with the end results.
I also wasn't satisfied Dead to Rights was receiving enough exposure. Lately, reviewers are swamped, so getting any reviews are difficult, but it's a little more difficult to entice a reviewer to read a self-pubbed novel, unfortunately. I'm hoping that now it will receive a little more attention.
And I just received this cover in my email. Beautiful, isn't it?
