With thirty-five days until Barely Breathing‘s release, my editor and I have been playing tag as we venture through the line editing phase. She has the completed manuscript and is dissecting it line by line. She then sends me the sentences that need rewording, or suggests alternatives to make them more powerful. Essentially she is making the story worthy for you to read, and I can’t imagine editing without her! (Did I ever tell you that editing is my least favorite part? Blah!)
Elizabeth is the best editor because she loves the characters as much as I do. She understands my voice, and appreciates the writing style – as wordy as it sometimes is. Together, we are polishing it up nice and pretty, (or not so pretty – ha!) in preparation for its release on May 1st!
At this moment, Barely Breathing is 10,000 words longer than RtB. I know, you thought RtB was long! We’re trying to trim off the excess, but the integrity of the story is what’s most important.
When I create each story, the chapters fall together like pieces of a puzzle. One moment leads to another, and what a person says on page 100 can directly impact something that happens on page 260. It’s interwoven with precision and everything is on purpose. So when I hear that people read RtB in a day or two, my first thought is – did they miss it – all of the details? I would love to encourage you to read it again right before the release of Barely Breathing and I hope you recognize the subtlety. Dating for sex and communication.

Because of these connections, I now have to do some reconstruction of the third book. This is mainly due to the ending. The ending to Barely Breathing has been rewritten three times already, and I’m still obsessing over it. So the ending you will read, will not be what was originally intended.
May 1st will be here before you know it! I release teasers on my Facebook page often, and I encourage you to check it out – https://www.facebook.com/ReasontoBreathe.
