Well, my book signing was a success. It was well attended and I signed quite a few books. My sincere thanks to all who showed up to support me. I had an enthusiastic crowd who asked really good questions about the writing process. I genuinely enjoyed the event and hope you did too.
Now back to work. I am in the middle of reading Self-Editing for Fiction Writers: How to edit yourself into print, by Renni Browne & Dave King. I won this book at our last SCBWI local chapter meeting. An author from Austin gave us a presentation on “revision.” The book came highly recommended by the author who said he used it during his revision. I took the title down, intending to buy the book as soon as the meeting was over. But, lucky me, I won it instead! So …. I shall put my middle-grade manuscript, Dulce’s Quest for the Crown, aside for a few days … or weeks … and focus on what the book has to say about editing.
