The editing on my current manuscript is coming along nicely. I hope to have the first edit completed by the end of the month, and barring any catastrophes, it looks doable. Once the first edit is finished, I plan to shelve it for the month of November while do NaNo (thusly, beginning my second WIP).
Once November wraps up, I will pull out the first manuscript and read the entire story from start to end. Hopefully, I will be of fresh eyes and mind, and able to catch any inconsistencies in the story. A second edit will follow, and then off it will go for critique. Final polishing will follow, and with fingers crossed, it will be ready for submission come the New Year.
I leave you with the working hook to Fine Line (Between Love and Hate), a hint to what this story delivers.
Imagine hating a man so intently that your only desire is to obliterate everything he's ever created. Then, imagine falling in love with that same man, the one you've avenged to destroy.
That is Cara Andrew's dilemma after she gains the trust and attention of high-powered businessman, Garrett Masterson. As they attempt to solve a case of embezzled money, money she plans to steal herself, Cara falls prey to Garrett's stunning good looks, lethal charm and blatant sex appeal. In the end, she must decide what is important as she learns there is a fine line between love and hate.
