Good news is an editor has been found, and the ball is officially rolling. It will take some time BUT it has begun, which is the important part.
It's been a relief to finally get the ball rolling with Book 2 because having it sitting there collecting dust was really weighing on my brain.
I also picked up a copy of Blueprint My Bestseller in anticipation of this. If you don't know, Blueprint is a method of organizing a manuscript that JK Rowling uses and, really, if you don't know how brilliantly plotted the Harry Potter books are then, well, go read them again!
I thought I might need it during the editing process. But we'll see.
I will keep you posted!
