And done! Opening chapters rewritten, and the novel is off to a few of my beta readers for feedback and comments.
So now we wait. We wait for the agent I really hope likes my work to get back to me (about another month to wait), we wait for the beta readers...
Actually, probably not much waiting in a vacuum. Instead, I continue writing Novel 4 (another Tintian!) while I wait. I'm about a third of the way through that one, so with some luck I can get it finished up before the end of the summer (at which point I will have, hopefully, saved up enough to pay for the editing on that one!).
No rest for the weary, my friends. But at least this one is done for now.
