Big news on our end, our first round of revisions are done! Laura is doing some final revisions on the last 50 pages this weekend and then next week we'll be re-reading the new version and making our final edits before sending to Major Agent. I'm really excited to take a little break and I can't wait to read the entire manuscript with fresh eyes come Monday.

Over the past few weeks we added almost 20,000 words to the book, whew! It's actually a little shocking. Let's just hope that they're GOOD words.

Have a great weekend everyone!

I can't imagine doing it for the whole book. I mean I know I will have to eventually but it'll be crazy.

Congratulations! I'm so thrilled to hear that and, boy, do I hope that they're good words too. 20k is a humongous amount. I'm proud of you. :)

Keep up the great work!

OH my goodness! Good for you two! I am proud for you to add so much! I know I'm going through revisions and I am worried how my word count is changing! It's crazy isn't it?!

I hope you both enjoy the break! You both deserve it! Keep us posted!

Awesome!!! You deserve the weekend to recover from all that hard work. I just got a taste of what revisions truly are and I can only imagine how much more pressing it feels when you are turning them into your agent. Way to go!!

Lisa and Laura said...

Thanks for all the kind words guys! We're really excited about all the changes in the book and we have our fingers crossed that our agent will love the updated version. Now we just have to read the new version and make sure it works. Our goal is to get the final version to Catherine by May
1st, and I think we're in pretty good shape to meet that deadline.

Next Friday the drinks will be on us!
