Since last November, I have been trudging through the editing process for my first published novel, Concealed in My Heart. I received my rights to it around the 1st of December of last year, and I have been so excited over the past few months to finally have the right to put it on Amazon as an ebook. It has never been released in this format before and I believe as such it will reach a brand new audience.
I thought at first this would be a simple process until diving into the manuscript again after so many years. While I love the story my writing style has changed so much since the first time I wrote those final words, “The End”, so now I’m basically having to rewrite the entire book again in order to meet my new standards.
Whatever I read some of the old conversations in the book I shudder and cringe. Needless to say this has been a difficult process. There have been so many times I have just wanted to call it quits. So you’re out there asking why don’t I just quit? I’ll tell you why. I love this story. I loved it then and I love it now. Let’s also not overlook the fact that I may be just a little pigheaded too.
It may be October before Concealed in My Heart is ready to be viewed by the public again, but I’m determined it’s going to be my best book ever. Everyone keep your fingers crossed. I’m heading back in. If you don’t hear from me soon send out a rescue unit to save me.
