Guess what? I FINALLY finished editing Rose's Wrath! First, that means I can send it to a professional editor and have them fine-tune the novel for me. While I think I've found one, I'm most definitely open to other affordable editors you might know! So feel free to leave a comment. Second, you may be… Continue reading Editor Time! Plus a Second Cover Reveal? And Title Reveal?
Credit to Laini Taylor. I merely found this on the internet. If you were to look at any Hot List for top YA novels right now, odds are Strange the Dreamer is one of them.
