MyBookProgress Update: Epic Fantasy Revision: Slogging through Editing

How’s that book coming along? Here’s your answer as it pertains to my epic fantasy novel revision of Rue the Day. #MyBOokProgress #AmWriting #AmEditing


A number of years ago I wrote an epic fantasy or maybe a paranormal fantasy. Hard to tell what to call it sometimes, as the lines blur.
