Writing

I just deleted* 16,000 words (64 pages). Excuse me while I go sit in a corner and cry.

Update: 16,000 is now 20,000 (80 pages). On the flip side, I am much happier with this lean and mean book. Promise. Tears are past ;)

p.s. *Actually I put them in a Deleted Scenes file just in case.

For a moment there I thought you meant an accidental delete! Glad to know the computer didn't eat your work ;-)

Please release everything on the website/in the newsletter after the book is published! I can never get enough of the Psy/Changelings. ;)

Love your deleted scenes. Can't wait to read them.

You know best. But speaking as a huge Psy/Changeling fan IF (and I know it's a big if), the scenes were just removed for pacing purposes and not because you changed your mind or felt you took the characters in the wrong direction, then please keep the deleted scene(s) to share with us later.

I understand going off on an "unnecessary" tangents affects the flow of a book. But I know we all really enjoy those glimpses when you later let us peek.

I'm assuming they're all from Allegiance of Honor? Can't wait for you to share!

Here's my thought: maybe one day you could publish a collection of all of the deleted scenes plus something else that you've posted for free for us through the years. I'll be first in line to preorder it.
