It took hours, but I finally got Nightmare at Camp Forrestwood proofread and edited! I had 48 edits! I did not expect to have that many. I got the first 25 free, but then got charged for every block of 25 - I had two more I should have used, but my eyes were so tired and burning, I didn't look through it again to use my last 2. I am a little worried about this one because a few reviews of Sudden Moves claimed that my dialogue was forced. I don't consider my dialogue forced. Forced is someone talking when there is no motivation for them to say what they say, like a book I am reading now. My characters react naturally, just because something comes out of their mouths that the reader doesn't expect, doesn't make it "forced." One critic said Sudden Moves was too dramatic and had too many twists for her to keep up. I take that as a compliment. Drama and twists are what keeps a novel going and hard to put down. I hope I have done a good job with Nightmare and hope everyone enjoys it! I am now waiting for Outskirts Press to correct my edits and then we are on our way to my second publication!!!
I got some great news already for 2011! Not only is Sudden Moves published, it also received a 5 star rating on Amazon's Kindle store!! I am so happy! I did not realize this was going to happen! I love how the review went into detail and what the writer liked about it. She writes for a newspaper/website in Oregon and I hope to have more people submit reviews! Here's to a good year!
