I’m still working on revisions for my 2001 novel, The Scribe of Irohila – this is the fourth revision – and at the same time I’m writing the synopsis. I’ve been terribly slow at getting this novel ready for publication. I wrote the original manuscript in only 17 days, but getting to the first edit took months because I’d never done it before and because I wanted to give it a rest period before reading it for the first time.
When I get this revision done I’ll be sending copies out to a few people for reading and reviewing. I have a few family members wanting to do this for me, but would like to have some children’s book writers look at it too, so I’m interested in trading book reviews with someone else who has a manuscript revised and ready for a first-reader.
This is a coming-of-age type middle grade novel set in a primitive society; fairly realistic, not much fantasy to it.
