I finally finished all the edits on my first books with the new company. Clan Gunn: Gerek is on its way to the publisher--all $7.05 of it. She should have it by Saturday. Then she gets it all ready for the printer and off it goes. Hopefully, I'll have it in my hands at the beginning of June.
I have just started the second in the series, Clan Gunn: Baen and that's why I haven't been active on the board. I have done the Alice Orr characterizations for Baen (added to them as well) and for the two antagonists-right from her book, No More Rejections. By the way, any author who doesn't have this book is missing something special. It's a dynamite, helpful book.
I have just recently figured out my heroine-protagonist and am doing the characterization of Vika Oliphant. As soon as I get her finished, I'll post again. Everything in the novel has changed since I added this new character, including the first paragraph, the first two pages and the entire first scene-which I've thrown out completely. Too much like the last book. And I hate to throw out whole scenes, but if they don't work anymore--out they go. Will be back soon.
