My editor, the fabulous Kathy Vogeltanz, completed her edit of the Remain in Light manuscript ahead of schedule, so I'm doing small rewrites, fixing typos and getting ready to send it to Vanilla Heart by mid-May. Kathy wrote the word BRAVO! in red pen across the title page, so that was a big boost. I was also pleased that she said the book totally stands on its own, even if you haven't read Conquering Venus. That was the biggest challenge, and I feel like I've succeeded.
I cannot tell you how excited I am about this novel. It's morphed into a literary mystery/suspense kinda story. It even has a touch of Hitchcock's Vertigo about it, with double identities, jumping over rooftops and obsession.
