The First Draft is Finished!

I was so happy and excited to write the final word of the 94,704 words in the book last night (well, it was really at 2:30 AM)! How wonderful to feel that the story of Leah Raber is finished.

Now the extra hard work begins: revisions, editing, and rewrites! But even knowing that all lies ahead, I'm still happy to have the entire story out of my head and on paper, so-to-speak.

I appreciate your many words of encouragement! Keep watching this space as I plan to continue to post excerpts from time to time as the story gets it's second round of polishing.

Onward to revisions!
