Looks like this ROW is over and I didn't even notice! I have been editing, off and on, as well as reading and watching yet another TV series - The Tunnel.
- Editing - I'm finishing another pass on Return to Kirk's Landing, before passing it on to my publisher at the end of July. He's lined up some beta readers to check it out. Then I can look at Agnes of Grimm while I'm waiting for feedback.
- My critique group is on hold for the summer I think, but I did recommend to them - and reread myself - The Writing and Critique Group Survival Guide, by Becky Levine. It covers how to form a group, and then how to critique. Some great tips on what to look for, in areas such as plot, character, scenes, etc. And some worksheets. It's helping me tighten up this book.
- I reviewed a submission for 'our' press, Deux Voiliers, but advised that we pass, with a nice form letter. I don't think the writer would like my comments as is.
