With the thundering of hooves, the Four Readers of the Apocalypse have ridden through, leaving notes, comments, and tons of edits in their wake. They've provided volumes of excellent feedback: everything from a comma in the wrong place to a ship in the wrong place.
It's also interesting to learn about my habits: things I do while I'm writing that I don't even know I'm doing. When I'm writing the first draft, I'm going just as fast as the ink will fly out of the pen, over the course of several weeks. I might get the idea in my head that "this character needs to mention this thing", and I make a point of writing it in, only to learn that I already mentioned it ten chapters ago, which I wrote last week. Spellcheck doesn't catch that sort of thing, only a sharp-eyed Reader of the Apocalypse will see it.
Having spent the last week editing and rewriting, I now have an Almost-Final draft. I'm going to let it sit for a few days before giving it a final read. A few last bits of polish, and it will be ready to go.
I've changed the title slightly: the sequel to Burnt Worlds will be known as Chosen. In a few days I should have the final cover ready, and I'll put it here for a sneak peek.
