So what happens now. After I give it a thorough read through I'll pass the book off to an editor who will rip my baby apart and tell me how to make it even better. Waiting for it to come back to me isn't fun. I could spend the next few weeks going crazy wondering if she hates it or likes it. Even though I love my characters she make think my hero is a jerk. Yes that has happened and it was a good thing, because at least she'll be felt something about him. And if since he redeems himself in the end and she changed her mind it was like striking gold.
I'm not going to just sit around and drive myself nuts while I'm waiting to hear back. After all typing the end doesn't mean all the work is done. First up is getting a cover designed. I usually have it done way before I'm done writing, but this time coming up with the right concept has been as easy. Thankfully the marketing plan for this book is about 70% in place. I'm working on my new series too. So I've got plenty to keep me distracted until I get the edits back.
