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.

Well, dang. Here we go again. It never ends and after it’s finished and in book form, some glaring typo will leap out at you.
At least we’re not bored, right? Roberta, you are a role model for persistence. Thank you. And I know your book will get out there.
Yes, my book will get out there, but how is the burning question.
I think that is part of the game. I know you will find a way for that book.
