I know it’s been a while since I’ve popped in here, but I’ve been doing what writers do…editing. That’s the thing about writing. getting the story out of your head and down on paper is the easy part of the job. The real grit comes when a writer has to edit. This process can make even the most ardent creatives run away in madness. I have done three major rewrites, several smaller rounds of rewriting, and more micro edits than I can remember. Editing can often be the most important part of writing a book. This version of, The Arsenic Box, is a completely different story than the one I initially set down on paper, but I’m so much more excited about it. It’s enticing, engaging, mysterious, and at times, dangerous (depending on which character you are). I can’t wait to bring this story to you. I can’t wait for you to sink your teeth into the tale I’ve woven just for you. There’s still plenty of work to do, but for now, I get to wait for my beta-readers to give me some feedback. What will I do while I wait? That’s an easy decision. I’ll start working on the next delicious tale, a young adult Gothic horror. Don’t worry, mystery lovers, there will be more deadly adventures for you too.
