Whew! I finally completed the second version of my novel. I feel good about this. I listened to my beta-readers and I think I covered all their questions. In addition, I added some necessary romantic spark and more situations to emphasize the theme of this story. I am pleased.
Next step: Handing this version to a new beta-reader (and beta-editor?), hoping there aren’t more questions to be answered.
Wish me luck!
