I did the re-write with the hope of landing the agent, but I did not like the story as much and decided to keep it as is. Foolish? Perhaps, but I figured if I didn’t like my own book, then what would have been the point? But it did get me to consider acquiring an editor.
Right away, I wanted a man for I felt he would allow a well-roundedness to my novels, giving it an authentic male voice, but then my sister pointed out that my target audience were women in search of fantasy. So now, I’m looking for someone to make my intent clear and offer critical guidance.
All my very best,
