My brother went home last night. The kids cried terribly, but we had a wonderful visit with him. Hopefully he’ll get to come out again soon.
I have one of my rare forays away from science fiction and fantasy waiting on my desk for me to copyedit: a novel by “the Queen of Hip-Hop Fiction,” Nikki Turner. I did her last book, The Glamorous Life, which was very well received, and so was asked to copyedit this one as well. The voice in Ms. Turner’s books is of paramount importance and part of what makes her novels bestsellers, and I’m extremely careful not to alter hers.
After this, I’ll work on revising my own novel a bit and will start putting together a query letter and polishing my synopsis. It’s very exciting!
