Copy Edits Are Back…

And my editor chopped 14,000 words from my manuscript!

I guess that should come as no surprise since she carved out 8,000 words from the last one. Now, I’m not exactly a verbose person, so this is a bit surprising. But the truth is, her cuts are expertly done, polish the story, and make it flow much better.

I just wish I were smart enough to catch these things while I’m writing, because it’d save me a ton of work.

World-travelling adventurer with a dry wit and a taste for single malt whisky. Spent my entire adult life in uniform and most of that as an infantryman--with all the accompanying ailments one would expect from such a lifestyle. Looking forward to the day when I can dedicate myself to writing full time, cutting firewood, and pursuing the elusive white tail.
