It’s not absolute final draft, but it’s close, and it’s worthy of human eyes besides my own. I have made it as good as I can make it, and Beta readers will help me polish it.
This was a lot of work, and I’m damn proud of myself.
My mother in law is reading part 3 now – she’s already read part 1 and 2. She gets the honour of being the first person to ever read the ending. Besides myself, of course. And she has no idea what’s coming. I’m kind of curious, and half worried what she’ll think of the piggyback ride scene. She reads fast – she’ll likely finish tonight. She’s liked it so far. Lets see if she hates me after she reads what I’ve done to my poor unsuspecting characters.
In the meantime, I’m drinking till it feels real.
Next is polish up a query letter an synopsis while I go through beta readers comments, and then send this puppy out.
This will get published. It’s my goddamned turn.
