Well then. I did an all-day push on Sunday and finished a new draft of The Lightning Giver, my New Adult novel about a young couple whose lives are turned upside down, literally and figuratively, when they are hit by lightning. While smooching in a millet field. It is a story of love, devotion, gender relations, perseverance, and guns.
Lots of guns.
I had a literary agent give me some stellar advice on the manuscript. While I won’t actually submit it because I’ve sine left the manuscript submission cha-cha, the novel sat around waiting for me to get my A-game on.
I gave this book everything and beta reader feedback on the prior draft was stellar. And now the book is better.
The next steps are to go through the manuscript and tighten up the prose and then hand it off to my new editor for an evaluation. I think she is going to love this book. It’s right up her alley.
