Update to the Misty Black Update…
Real quick and then it’s back to work for me… I’m at an exciting point in Forget Me Never (Love it!)
However, just wanted to say that my re-release plans for Misty Black, The Beginning have changed.
This morning I received a call from my editor. She was having a difficult time editing the third-person omniscient POV. It wasn’t that she didn’t have the capability to do it, it just wasn’t her cup of tea. And so we began an entire conversation on this issue of POV and why one is more effective than the other. I admitted that the POV is the reason I haven’t released another book in the series. I’m confused by how to proceed. We talked about how omniscient has fallen out of form. I know why I chose the current POV of Misty Black. I can explain it but I’m in crunch-time–I’ll say that it had a lot to do with me being a structuralist when I began writing novels. And if I had chance to do it over again, then I would.
Why not do just that???
I know the story is strong. But if I can make it stronger, then why not! It’s a free book. But just because it’s free doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be the best that it can be. It’s good that I unpublished it because at least now when it comes back it has the opportunity to be better, and I can be less confused on how to proceed.
After my editor and I talked, I decided to submit on December 8, 2014 for editing. That’s way, after I finish book 4 of LOVE in the USA, I’ll dedicate one month tightening the story, fixing the POV, changing it to 3rd Person Limited and separating Misty’s narration from Max’s. I’ll see…
Excuse any glaring typos in this post. I’ll go back and re-read later. It’s time to get back to Forget Me Never.
