Switching into Edit Mode

For some, editing their own book is a joyous thing. For others, sawing off your own arm might be more enjoyable. I’m somewhere in the middle. There are times when I really have fun editing and other times when it is painful and grueling. In both cases it is necessary so I do it (sometime reluctantly) to the best of my ability. That is where I am now. I have two books that need editing so I can send them off to the publishers. I am digging into Jack Kane first.

Get Published Episode 124 – Nila E White Talks about Lucky or Unlucky: 13 Stories of Fate
