In service of the story

I was never so happy for a Friday. Today's the due date for my first round edits on my fantasy novel, Goddess, Awakened. And I. Am. Done!

Two reasons to happy dance!

This week has been intense. Nonstop edits. And now *breath of relief* it's over. I've emailed the document to my editor, hooray!

Once again, I've deleted almost two thousand words to the story, and added another 2k or so. Many little improvements which will ultimately make a better story.

My editor's seen the cover and said it's gorgeous. I can't wait to see it too.

Exciting news!

Kensington has contracted my contemporary novella, Twice in a Blue Moon, for its Lyrical imprint! I'm over the (blue) moon! If you'd like to read the blurb, it's on the Coming Soon page.

So there are three reason to happy dance today.

Again, sorry if I wasn't around much this week. I'll catch up later! Hope you're doing well, and that your characters aren't having difficulties. Or giving you any!

A winner!

Thanks to everyone who entered my giveaway for Cursed at Night Owl Reviews!  The Rafflecopter closed early today, and randomly selected Angie Whitehead as the winner. Congrats Angie! Watch for an email from me. Happy reading!

And happy Friday!

Congrats to Angie and congrats to you! I know that's a big load off your mind.

Have you recovered from strep? How about the grandboys?

Cate Masters said...

Aw thanks Maria! Yes, it was a weight off of me. Next round of edits await!

Yes, we all finished our antibiotics so are ready to meet any new bugs head on, lol.

Hope you're having a wonderful birthday!

DMS said...

Yeah! Awesome that the edits are done. It is so rewarding when the edits are all done. Can't wait to see the cover!

Love that you have so many wonderful things going on (not the sicknesses at your house, of course). ;)

Cate Masters said...

Thanks Jess! We're all much better now, thank goodness. Come on, Spring!

Arlene said...

All wonderful news, Cate, and much deserved. Congrats!!!
