Rewriting my Debut Novel

In 2007, Five Star released my first novel, a contemporary romance titled The Love of His Brother. Boy, was I excited. It was the first step in an ongoing journey... the first time I seriously made the transition from writer to author (in my mind, anyway).

Now, five years later, TLOHB is out of print and the rights have reverted back to me. That means I have the ability to republish it, which I intend to do, in ebook format. In preparation for this, I decided to go over the manuscript and give a good polish and shine. What an eye-opener that was!

I still believe it's a good story, but the writing, well... let's just say I've come a long, long way since then. What I thought would be a quick touch up here and there has turned into a major remodel. Hopefully, I'll get through it by the end of the month... even with my hand in a cast (which I have to mention in order to elicit the appropriate sympathy sigh... awwwwwwwwe.)
