Summon Up the Blood

I just edited 303 pages, and boy is my spine sore...

My editor is awesome, though. Making her edits shortened the book by a couple thousand words, and they were all words that deserved to be cut. She sliced a lot of fat right out of the book. She also saved me from looking like an idiot a few times, and asked some good questions I had to answer to my own satisfaction, and she clearly enjoyed all the stuff I enjoyed the most. It's good to find an editor you're so simpatico with.

And, reading the whole thing again tonight, I was surprised to find how much I enjoyed the novel. I think Blood Engines really works. Hope you guys think so, too, come October.

I did take a break from editing to watch Veronica Mars, and thought it was a strong episode. And I have to wait 2 months for the last six episodes of the season? Argh! At least they finished off the mystery arc before the brutal hiatus.

Um. That's all. I'm going to collapse on the couch now.
