Yes, you guessed correctly. The rewritten rough draft of the first book of my trilogy is now in the hands of my writing coach, Alida Winternheimer (www.wordessentials.com).
She will edit the story pointing out its strength and weaknesses. I will rewrite it again, and I suspect there will be more rewrites in my future. Once the final edit and rewrite have occurred, book one will be sent to Beta readers for their input. Another rewrite and then perhaps it will be ready for publication.
Waiting for Alida’s edits, I will begin to organize the second book. The journey continues and I’m excited to observe the evolution of my trilogy.
