Your Update Link: For the Broken Girl – Chapter Six
Finally got a chance to come in and add some text to one of these template update posts. I hope you guys are okay that 1-2 times a week, it’s just simply the link to the newest chapter. I’ve been busy with other things, and honestly, having the update post also be scheduled so far into the future is a relief.
Thanks so much for the response so far! We’re just about finished setting up the story and we’re about to go full force into the main part of the story with Chapter Six and the Sonny/Emily reveal (oops! spoiler!) In editing news, I ended up splitting Chapter 13 into two chapters and adding two extra new scenes and substantially rewriting Chapter 14. I don’t plan to do that with any of the other later chapters, it’s just Chapter 13 didn’t quite make the emotional landing it needed to and there was still something missing. I hope to get the final tweaks on the draft done this week.
Because Broken Girl is taking a bit longer than I wanted and Mad World Book 3 has been giving me a bit of trouble, I’m about 75% sure that I’ll be pushing publication back a month. To be honest, I had really anticipated being completely done with Broken Girl by this point but I’ve been able to do an extra round of edits that make the story so much better. I’ll be adding this stange to Mad World, and with barely three months to go until the original publication, I don’t think I’ll make it. I’d have a month to do the draft, a month for the first round of edits, and a month to finish the edits — I don’t think I can manage a three month turnaround for an entire novel.
I’ll let you know for sure at the end of the week. If I can get Broken Girl done this week and get into Mad World with some real progress by Friday, I can make a more accurate prediction of how long it’s going to take.
