6+ months and several intense weeks of editing are done. Abandon Us is ready for the editor! Mom gets the first printed copy of Abandon Us; dad helped with the edits.
The manuscript is provided in a specific format. See this Reedsy blog article. The printout is enormous!
The editing process will involve multiple types of edits. See 6 Types of Editing: Which One Do You Need Right Now? Reedsy blog post.
The feedback from the editor will take several weeks. I’ll start college and Remember Us (the final book in the Odemark series) while I wait.
