I've decided that my favorite stage of writing is the revision stage. I looooove revisions. It's so much fun to take apart stories and piece them back together. To flesh out scenes that need expanding and delete what isn't necessary. This is when the magic happens--when an author adds the tiny details that bring in flavor and life to the writing.
I'm not a fan of first drafts. Or outlining. I know most people LOVE the spark of a new idea and playing with fresh story lines, but I'd much rather work with a manuscript that's already on paper and improve it from there. If I could, I'd stay in the revision stage forever. It's safe. Fun. There's time to play with words and you haven't put yourself out there yet... ;-)
I don't know why this is on my mind, but I do know that I have to segue this in a clever way to a totally awesome cover reveal. How about: I'm glad these two girls know when to take the leap and not stay in the revision stage.
Jolene Perry and Steph Campbell are two of my most favorite people on the planet. And they're sickly talented to boot.
I'm so privileged to help take part in their cover reveal for My Fate For Yours. Check this out:
A secret love.
A life lost too soon.
A destiny reversed.
You’ve met Tobin & Delia.
This is Eamon’s story…
The prequel to My Heart for Yours.
MY FATE FOR YOURS.
Their first book, My Heart For Yours was such a success, they had to write the prequel. (Literally. They had screaming fans and an overflowing inbox of mail demanding to know more of the story!) And I'm so excited. Jolene and Steph together create magic. My Fate For Yours comes out July 15 2013!
Are you a revision fan like me? Have you read Jolene and Steph? Hope your week is going fabulous.
Red. Head. Out.
