Hooray! I just finished my 5th draft (barring a few minor changes from a list I’ve been keeping).
This draft has been very important, because I’ve been working through the excellent suggestions of my wife. She took an entire month to do a detailed line edit, and I think it has added a polish that I didn’t know was possible.
I’ll be sending out a few copies to friends and family to get their reaction.
After making any suggested changes, I’m planning on blitzing some agents with queries and proposals. The chances are slim to none for success in that area, but we’ll see what God does.
Also, I’ve made some exciting discoveries that may turn out to be the setting for books 4 and 5. More on that later…
