I opened my blog, looked at my awesome followers list and --what-- is that 40 followers--holy crow! You guys rock! I hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day! I spent time with my family and ate lots of chocolate.
Catch the contest on Beautiful Chaos. Michelle is giving away a signed copy of her book Eldala. It looks really good. I think I will be picking up a copy :)
Thank you to Steena at Chocolate Reality for her contest--I won the book Thin Places by Mary DeMuth!
Now onto my post--
My first question is about word count. Does this matter when submitting? Why I am worried about this now is silly but I have been thinking about it. I saw a post reagarding how some editors may not even look at your manuscript if it has more than a certain amount of wordage--especially a debut. I read that a debut should have 50,000 words or less. Is this true? I am quickly approaching 85,000. I know this most likely will change as I revise but I don't think I could have less than 70,000 to tell my story.
Does anyone have any experience with this?
My other question--I missed the love at first sight blogfest:( I did want to post another scene from my WIP --a happier one. So, should I post a cute love scene or steamy. I am still a bundle of nerves with posting this but thought I would post one more before I start revising--well-- I have to finish it. I still am having a hard time with the last chapter. Yes --Kelly I will get it to you:)
I hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day:)
