The Final Edit: A Full Process Rundown

Two days ago I delivered the final final FINAL manuscript of BLOOD OF THE COSMOS, the second book in the Saga of Shadows Trilogy—185,000 words long, 752 pages, 132 chapters…six drafts.  Yes, it was an enormous project, not just the length of the manuscript itself, but all the numerous characters, settings, plot lines, and the intricate choreography.

I wanted to take you through everything that went on between Draft 5 and Draft 6.  It’s a lot more than just reading and polishing here and there.
