I only thought I was finished with that novel. After 14 drafts, a lot of helpful input from others, and what seemed like enough revision, I was ready to send it out. Turns out, it was not ready to go. After a number of rejections that included one agent who read part of the novel, some polite form letters, some abrupt form letters, and some no responses, I sent the manuscript off for a free sample edit. It seemed to be spot on, so I hired an editor from @DarlingAxe. Michelle Barker turned her professional eye to it and sent me a wonderfully detailed narrative assessment. So here we go. Sledge hammer and hard hat ready. Meet you on the other side.
