Review number 2 is done... but do I have to rewrite the ending?

WOO! Review number two is complete and I'm working on the notes. The only problem is the comment that the end of the book isn't right... Which is concerning because it conveys what I want it to convey but that doesn't necessarily mean the reader reads it that way. So I've asked my fabulous flow editor to have a scan over it and reconsider it with this other person's thoughts. Nothing about writing is straight forward or easy *sigh* I have an insane amount of work to do in far too little time (or so it feels like). At the same time as all this I've re-edited and re-formatted The Arrival and the wonderful Sally Mustang (a blog buddy, no not her real name *grin*) is going through it as well as my friend Alex. Excessive comma usage is being addressed and words I didn't even realise I'd missed (found a few of those in the re-edit *blush*). All this is happening so I can ideally have The Arrival and Awakening in e-book format AND paperback format at the same time. The Arrival is also having a world map added; Oh, and I've changed the name of the world from Sytas, to Gar'nyse - so to prevent any possible trademark/copyright issues; and I'm adding a Glossary of Main characters. So each book in the trilogy will have a glossary with a super brief explanation as to who is who (or what) and each map will include the places mentioned in that book. WHEW! I actually can't stop to really think about how much I need to do, it gives me panic attacks, all I can do is get into it. With sporadic updates here and on Facebook when I get the chance : )

Hope you're all well : )

Take care all!
 The Arrival, on Amazon or UK Amazon
