Here is what comes next before I even consider sending it to an editor.
I let it sit. It maybe for six weeks, it depends on what else I have going on around me. Then I start at the beginning and read it through as a reader and an editor. Is this the type of novel I would love to read? Would it drag a reader in and keep her there? Have I started in the right place with an action scene?
During the next week I'm going over another manuscript and adding the romance, which an editor would like to see. It was originally a Suspense with romantic elements, so now it's moving forward into a Romantic Suspense.
Okay, lots to do, and work on as you can see,
Be good, and don't forget to smile. You know it takes more muscles to frown than to smile. :)
