The first draft of Broken Bits began October 2014 and was finished late December 2014. Back then, it was only 46k words.
The I worked on a Victorian idea for 6 months before picking it back up, making significant changes and finding an editor. By now, I was up to 56k. Boy! what a difference a great editor makes!
Just sent my final edit of 80k to editor June 2016.
Equally euphoric and terrified!
