For those who don’t know, my grammar isn’t the best but it is getting better. It’s not that I don’t know the rules, its more of my creative voice goes wild during the writing and doesn’t shut up for the rewriting or editing stages.
For the last few years, I’ve wanted to have My Lord Hades re-edited as some very dear readers found mistakes my editor missed. There were way too many errors for my comfort. Why didn’t I catch them? Because I’ve read through My Lord Hades a hundred times by that time and probably could have recited it word for word. I knew what I wanted it say, not necessarily what it was saying.
Anyways, during my two month break I decided to get some business stuff done and printed it off to read through it. Last week I finished imputing the last of the corrections. Still found a lot of mistakes, which I cleaned up, and then I trimmed down some of the scenes which surprisingly didn’t lower the word count much.
After that I contacted the proofreader that did Death’s Lover to see when she had an opening. She came highly recommended and I loved working with her. So My Lord Hades is off to the proofreader today and while it’s being corrected I’ll be working on a series of retrospective blog posts for the relaunch of My Lord Hades in a couple of weeks.
Wishing you all the best,
