Irene Frances Olson: falling in love with my second novel

Posted on Updated on

Bridged by Betrayal is a healthy 75,366 words.

Next steps:

  1. print paper copy, do another edit, this time with colored pens & highlighters;
  2. transfer pen edits to the computer copy;
  3. print several paper copies so my Beta readers can get their hands on my manuscript and apply their constructive magic to it;
