Another all-nighter, but what can you do.
My book is sitting at a lean, mean 99,900 words. And I’m not quite finished with the edits. But for sure on Saturday, it will be off my desk and in my agent’s inbox. And then I can go to Las Vegas with nothing hanging over my head.
Confession: I tried to weasel out of cutting it down this far. Not because the book wouldn’t benefit, but because I didn’t think I could do it. But my agent wouldn’t let me off the hook. She told me not to fret, and said that not only did she believe I could get the book down to under 100k, but once I did, it would be that much better.
She was right on both counts.
