Oh Em Gee, it's done! I can't believe it. The monster I'd begun to call my story, Smoke, is FINISHED.
Well, okay, first draft is. Of course it's on to the betas and then a final read for me before it goes to the publisher. I'm so excited about the story. I believe once I went through it again and finagled with sentences it turned out great.
And no, it's NOT 130K, thank freaking goodness. It's 117. Before the cuts, it was 123 so I'd say I did a great job in cutting. I won't mind cutting more though. I'm sure the betas will have more suggestions about what isn't needed. Regardless I am happy as ever that I completed this story and can cross it off my to-do list.
Now I can concentrate on my other things as well as my new stories. Then, the waiting begins once I send it off to the publisher.
Wish me luck!

So with that news, the WIP list gets bigger. LMAO
You thought it went the other way?
I will start Nola Nuptials and my 2 het stories as well. Immortals is only in the beginning so it will be a while for that one. PROTEKT isn't even started and I need to rewrite the synopsis. So instead of crossing off, I'll be adding to the WIP list. Such is the life of a writer.
