I spent the last week and half doing a final-final-final clean-up, read-through, edit on my third novel, “The Reach of the Banyan Tree.”
This final run-through was after my proofreader and editor worked her magic and all changes were made. But I just felt like I wanted to read it one more time before giving my final approval to the finished manuscript.
I’m glad I did.
As any writer knows, a manuscript is never really complete. There is always more to do and change. But on my final run-through, I caught some little things, changed some wording, varied some phrases, and ultimately just polished it a little more so it shines a little brighter. I am very happy with the results, and I’m very excited for its release in only 15 days.
So much more to do over the next couple of weeks and months, but the long, hard writing and editing process is officially finished. I can now, when I have time, move back to novel #4 which is about 70 percent complete, but which I haven’t worked on in quite a while. I’m excited to get back to it. It’s quite unique. Much more about that at a later date.
But for now, “The Reach of the Banyan Tree” is finished will be available soon.
