Looking Back on Forever is done, finished. I am not touching it again. Probably ever. Once it’s published, I am letting go, which is so sad because I adore Claire and Noah. They are my babies, and I don’t want to leave them. However, I am already outlining another book that will have Noah and Claire in it, but I have no clue when I will get to it. There are two, maybe three, other books I want to work on first.
I just completed another read-through (like the 4th one), and I love it just as much now as I did when I wrote it. I did manage to make a lot of cuts, but they don’t take away from the book. I hope.
After a long discussion with an author friend, I decided not to go with an agent. The horror stories I heard … Yeah, I don’t want to go that route. No thank you.
The book is completely formatted now. I’m waiting to get my paperback proof, and I’m waiting to hear back from a virtual book tour blog to set a release timeline. That’s where I am now. It’s a waiting game. Feels like all I have been doing is waiting, but I prefer it this way instead of rushing and sending out a subpar book. I can’t do that to Noah and Claire.
Levi and Lucia are next! I can’t wait to delve back into their world. Once you read Looking Back, if you think what I put Claire and Noah through is bad, you haven’t seen nothing!
