Ok, so I have been patiently waiting to receive my first real edits from my publisher. While the comments were very minimal, I would be lying if said there was no part of me that secretly hoped it would be perfect the first go round! Now, the edits were very minimal but what they asked me to change was my entire introduction! Ouch. My editor, Briana, stated that the illustrators felt there was not a lot of action to grab a child’s attention. Really? I thought I was setting the stage? Oh, well. C’est la vie! So, my hilarious husband pointed out that she did state, “..unless you violently oppose making changes” we could keep it as is. I am opting to trust the experts here and I made my edits. So, edits have been returned and now we wait. Next up…..ILLUSTRATIONS!!!!!
