So, why am I proposing to show this to an editor before it’s really ready?
It’s actually a matter of geography. I’m in
I’m taking some things along for her to have a look at. My precious The Prophecy – I just can’t get used to that - it used to be Peace Child. I’ve actually had that one made into real books so they are easier to read. - Spooked as mentioned and Miss Maplethorpe – a short novel, perhaps for reluctant readers. According to Microsoft it has a reading age of 4.6. Interestingly that was edited to perfection when I last looked at it, about eighteen months ago. I’m sure today I would find it a bit shaky. I did have a little glance at it, though, as I printed it, and it did look fine.
But when do you stop editing?
I’m keeping fingers crossed for my lunch time meeting tomorrow.
I’m also taking a few extra copies to the conference as well. There will be many networking opportunities there as well.
