Manuscript tweaking came to and end this week as the professional editing phase of the project began.
One week to stop thinking about the smart girl with big problems on her hands. One week to focus on finishing the interior art pieces and create five novella cover designs.
It was hard not to wonder what my editor was doing out in Minnesota, once she received the e-mail with the manuscript attached.
As the final completion of this monumental self-publishing undertaking gets closer, the free version of Haylee and the Traveler’s Stone [that contains all five novellas] is approaching its removal from public view. The last day to get it is June 30!
Here is what some of the advance readers had to say.
“Haylee [is] a complicated character. She pulled [at] me to keep turning pages to see if there would be redemption.” – Kamara Garcia, dōTERRA, Independent Product Consultant
“Haylee is about a girl who is undergoing … odd transformations in young adulthood. Some of these changes are frightening and cause [her] to question who / what she is. As ‘fate’ would have it [she is transported to California during the Gold Rush and ]meets two important figures [who help] her on her journey.” – Ashley Votaw, Nevada City Organic Farmer & Herbalist
‘Haylee is a fantasy adventure coming of age story with a touch of romance about a girl with unexpected power trying to find her place in the world.”
After reading the third book [Haylee: Burden of the Powerful] “Ohmygoshwhatisshegoingtodo?!?!?! What happens next!?”
