"You want me to cut HOW many words from the book???" Unfortunately, that’s a question Julie Lessman’s has had to ask more than once of her editor, so when it comes to editing a big book down, she’s your gal. Wednesday we joined Julie for her blog, "Crash Edits: How to Trim the Fat From Your Novel" as she shared tips learned the hard way when she had to cut 50,000 words from one of her books. Jill Weatherholt is the winner of Julie’s brand-new contemporary novel, Isle of Hope, in either paperback or ebook.
Thursday, we cowboy'd up with Ruth Logan Herne as she celebrated her first cowboy story going into production at Waterbrook/Multnomah, Back in the Saddle!
