So the last eight months has been too confusing to do much on this site. Between selling our house, moving into temporary quarters and then moving half way across the country to San Diego, I could just barely spare the brain cycles to finish up the final edit on Dark Adapted.
Speaking of which, hire an editor. Not a grammar editor, you can do that yourself with one small book (The Elements of Style), but a STORY editor. I’ve done two passes with my story editor, Jessica de Bruyn firstname.lastname@example.org, and my story problems are gone. Trust me, you think you don’t have plot holes or cardboard characters, but you do. You just can’t see them.
So, anyway, Dark Adapted is now trickling out to agents and that is the last I will say about it until something positive happens.
Meanwhile, I’ll be back on my genre stuff again just like before.
