And The Heavy Editing Begins

Over the next four months, I'll be busy doing the heavy editing work on book five in the Tony Rains Novel Series - Inside Pocket. Every time I get to this stage, I always found myself doing a near total rewrite, and honestly, it's a fun process. Bring on the late night sessions 😀

Locked Up

Note to self -- daily posts for the remainder of the week will come from a hospital bed. I'm going in for a procedure on Tuesday the 18th that will leave me layed up for three or four days. I hope to be back in my writers room by Saturday.

Editing Challenges

I've had so many typos get past me with my first four books, I've gotten into the habit of editing each chapter as they're written, slowing down the serious work of writing. What's the best approach to meticulous editing? I've heard the one about having a trusted colleague read your work. That sounds good, but in the book world, those people expect to be paid for their efforts. I can't afford to pay them. What to do?

P.S. - If you read the previous post, I'm keeping my promise to post here daily.
