I am doing my happy dance. I just finished my first editing check of my book. After I recheck it I will be putting it on Amazon. It's a historical ghost romance for teens who are reluctant readers. I can't wait to get all of the editing over with. It has been a long time coming but I have almost reached the finish line. I am overjoyed.

Yeah Susan! I don't like self-editing as much as you do, though I wish I can afford an editor, if I can't win it via a contest.

@KristinH I don't mind the editing, it's the marketing that sets me atremble.

@HazySue aww If you're on social media, you can plug your work via there. Do you have a blog or website? Bookmarks are ideal with book trailers as well.

@softbabe44 it is a great relief to have gotten to the final edit. It took a lot of work and a lot of time.

@HazySue Writing is pretty easy but can burn one out when you are stumped and can't think.

@BelleStarr thank you, writing is not a choice for the weak and easily discouraged person.

Always nice to have something that finally feels like it's ready. I have a lot of work to do on a couple of rough draft manuscripts. It isn't easy work.

@koopharper it sure isn't easy work. It wouldn't be as rewarding if it was. I believe in you and your ability to finish the work on your manuscripts and look forward to seeing the finished product.

@whiteream that's true. I suspect the hardest part is still ahead of me - the marketing.

Sounds good. A chapbook of mine is on Amazon. Best of luck to you. I love the idea of having a book that urges a young person to read and explore.
