So! The good news is that I drew up a political map of all the kingdoms north of the Great Barrier Desert for Blood of Midnight. It really helped clarify what all is going on in the area, who is doing what, who owes loyalty to whom and why. I also finished editing chapter 19, the final chapter of the book.
The bad news is, I must have forgotten to save the edits on my first chapter so I had to do them all over again.
Well, win some and lose some. In any case, my first chapter is once again in the hands of my editor and soon the others will follow. Woohoo!
