I am happy to say that after working with an Agent and lots of editing on both of our parts. UnEnchanted is finished. It has been extensively edited and Re-released on 9/21/12. It can take a few weeks to a few months for the edits to trickle through the ebook world. But gone are 99% of the errors and a few added bonuses may be found in the ebook, and paperback version.
Yes, I know that is what many of you are probably going to say, but it had to have happened sooner or later. So if you got a first copy of the book before the edits, you can say that you are extremely special.
What is different?
1. A few of the chapters have been combined. A couple of of them were super short and didn’t need their own chapter heading. I had one chapter that was like three sentences. Going for drama there. Didn’t need it.
2. Some of the POV’s have been deleted. Because they were unneeded or were redundant. I loved throwing in a paragraph or two of what Mina’s mom was thinking, but it didn’t really move the plot along and it made it confusing in some parts. Other character’s POV switches interrupted the flow of the writing and again weren’t necessarily needed. So you may not hear from Brody’s point of view or Jared’s as much in UnEnchanted. But again, it is always more fun for a girl to fill in the blanks herself anyway.
3. A couple of scenes extended.
But that is it. UnEnchanted, though good, wasn’t great yet! If we ever wanted to progress and tackle the world it needed to be done. So now I can quit getting all of the annoying emails from people asking to edit my books, or trying to sell me on an editor. I already had one. And it was a work in progress.
WAAAA! Have I been jipped? Did I miss something new?
It doesn’t really matter, because the book is still FREE. Right now, at least. So you can still download it directly onto your computer from Smashwords. It may take a while for the new version to get to KOBO, APPLE and BN.
Soon, I will tackle Fairest, and give it a few tweaks as well.
But for all of the naysayers and mean critic’s about editing and grammar etc. Here’s big loud raspberry PPPPBBBBFFFLLLTTTTT. Because there, it is done and re-edited, but nobody but will never know or care. Only I will know and my fans!
So cheer with me, we will bring UnEnchanted to a higher standard and bring the rest of the world with us.
