Rewrites there a more daunting word than rewrite for authors?

Book two in the Tueri Psychics series is done...but not really. First round of edits for this book is really a rewrite. I had hoped this wouldn't be the case. So much for hope.

Time to put my poster board together, create a new inciting incident, and carry the threads of changed material through the story. Believe me when I say there are enough changes that I'm taking this working project one chapter at a time. Otherwise, I might crumble under the weight of the full picture.

can do this.

Got my candle, my keyboard, and a truckload of chocolate.

Ready. Set. Go......


  1. Um, did someone say chocolate?! I've come to the right place. :-)

    Nice to meet you, Renee! So glad you've joined the Blog Hop this week. I look forward to reading your post!

  2. Renee,
    Have no fear! This too shall pass. The good news is the editors are really great, and as much as they push you, it will make the book better. My edits were the most rigorous I've ever had, and yes, even for Macmillan. And thanks for dropping by, my Mojito bud, Liz!
