Revising Daylight Hours has been one of the most difficult aspects of writing and self-publishing. It’s one thing to sit down in front of the computer and write out a story, but an entirely different endeavor to then take said story and decide what is good and what is worthless shit. Once you go through the torture of editing the plot and revising for content of the novel, you have to start the dreadful task of editing for grammar. Proofreading your own novel is more or less the equivalent of self-mutilation in the sense that you become stuck in an endless cycle of always finding “better” ways of saying a sentence or describing someone or something.
In a better world, I’d have an Agent and a professional Editor who was getting paid a salary to make sense of the mess of a story I’ve spit out.
Yeah, I don’t have an Agent or an Editor…yet. I do have a devoted friend though. One who supports and believes in me enough as a writer to sacrifice his time to help me edit Daylight Hours and help get it where it needs to be. It’s the kind of support and devotion that makes me feel like I’ve already succeeded in telling a good story.
I originally self-published Daylight Hours earlier this year as an eBook for the Kindle on Amazon. Since then, the novel has been revised, edited, and proofread some more so that it can be re-released the way that it should have been. Not only will the Kindle version be updated with all of the changes I’ve made to the novel, but I will also have a paperback version as well as making Daylight Hours available for the Nook.
Every move I make, right or wrong, is a learning experience. They help me grow as a writer and learn how the industry works so that I can be successful.
Daylight Hours is coming soon in paperback and as an eBook for Kindle and the Nook.
