I’ve been working ten to twelve hour days this week since Monday (today is Thursday) focused on the revision edit of Stoc. A revision edit (not sure if that’s a real term or not – it’s what I use) is my second pass through the novel. It allows me to discover flaws and correct typos and the like. Essentially I am reading the novel for the first time. I’ve given myself until August 15th to complete this critical revision.
Once that is complete it will be sent out as an ARC.
After that comes the final revision. I love the final revision. It’s when the novel is polished.
