Light a Candle for Me
I'm working with an agent on my thriller, QUEEN. Good news. Last week I received her edits back. Good news. She likes it. Good news. Bad news is that I have to cut 100 pages. Well, it is the longest book I've ever written. And last summer when I did a major rewrite, I added 100 pages throughout the book. So my manuscript now is 136,000 words (roughly 540 pages) which means to par it down 100 pages, I need to cut 25,000 words.
Someone please light a candle for me . . .
