The final corrections/changes for Left to Chance have gone off to my editor at St. Martin’s Press. When I read through the pages, I was reunited with Teddi and the cast of characters I’d left behind, and I was relieved to find out — I still loved them! Left to Chance has been called a “heart healing” story and in such a tumultuous time in our country, who couldn’t use that, right?
To be honest, during the last 100 pages, I forgot I was supposed to be looking for mistakes and I just read! That’s good, right? Right! It meant, of course, that I had to do it all again, which I’d have done anyway. (I go through my pages at least twice.)
When the pages first arrived, I photographed my desk, and many people on social media commented on how neat the desk was. Believe me, those who know me well were rolling their eyes.
What was once a decorative table-turned-desk is now my desk/laundry room. Feel better about your own desk now? That’s what I’m here for.
And just after I sent off the pages via FedEx, this happened…
I know, right? Here’s a better view:
I’ll be back later this week with news of a giveaway — and if you remember — I hosted an ARC giveaway here before I even had them, and that one is being mailed out today!
This is an exciting time in authorland. In some ways it feels like November is forever from now. In other ways it feels like it’s tomorrow. There’s a lot to do and a lot to plan and much support to build for Left to Chance.
Thank you for coming along for the ride—again!
