Perfection

Writing a book is such a huge undertaking. There are times when it pushes my creativity and patience to the limit. And my desire for perfection only makes it worse.

Right now, I’m in the middle of edits for the second book of RORY’S CHOICE. The first book will always have a special place in my heart, but it’s not perfect. Oooh, how I wish it was, but in reality, it’s not. My publisher allowed me to skip a few steps so my mother would be able to see RORY’S CHOICE in print before she died. Is it still a good book? You betcha, mistakes and all, it’s a story most females will relate too.

Now that we’re editing book two, I’m more determined than ever to make this novel perfect. I don’t know if it’s possible, the novel is 100,000 words. That creates plenty of opportunities for a misspelled word or punctuation screw up to be missed. If you find one in this next novel, I hope you’ll forgive me. Perfection would be awesome, but my best is all I can give you. I promise, you’re gonna freak when you read book two.
