As the title of this post suggests, edititing is key to gettin ur story inline with ur vision.
I had to write the first crestfqllen book nearly 3 full times before i got it right. Im getting better at editing out the fat as im writing, but i wouldnt always suggest that way of doing it. My prefered way is to write every bit of lean and every bit of fat and trim later. That way u dont lose any ideas lurking in additional prose.
Tomb of Roses is gonna be read one last time this weekend and given its final edit, then its a few weeks and it will be out on the Kindle.
