Heart Fate Stats

Once again I managed to cut 60 pages...which was mostly tightening. Some paragraphs did squeak a little when I cut, but a lot of it was sloppy writing...Many "I thinks....." and "Now" and "Even" and "Still"

Stuff sorta like: He thought he might consider how to decide regarding....

instead of: He decided...

Anyway here are the before and after stats:

I'm very pleased with the polishing and the book...paced a lot yesterday when I rearranged and cut some scenes...then, of course, the printer screwed up and it took me 3 hours to print 2 copies....

Sigh.

May all your electronics work smoothly today!

You might find interesting to look at covercafe.com if you have not seen it yet. Cover Contest 2006 had very nice ones.

Thank you! I did nominate Protector of the Flight at the proper time, we'll see how that goes.

Guess I can do the same for Keepers of the Flame.
