"Why didn't you wake me?!" - "You didn't seem to want waking."
The first draft and minor cursory edit of Alien's Vice is officially sent for its developmental edit! As a recap, Alien's Vice is the sequel to my two-book plan for the Shards of Infinity series. Book One, Alien's Host, is currently out as part of the Unwrapping the Alien anthology.
I tried not to get too hung up in small wording details when giving the rough draft a once-over: the point of the developmental edit is to judge the overall plot and character development, not get hung up on wording. After incorporating feedback that comes as part of the developmental edit, I will do a more detailed stylistic and grammar edit before sending it off to the editor again for the copy edit.
Yes, I know that's a lot of edits... But I decided to focus on quality at the expense of speed.
