I'm further along on Book Two. I've cut two more scenes and tightened the POV. It's a start.
The goal is to turn Book Two into a complete story. Instead of breaking it into two books, I want to tell one story with it.
I went through the tender, heart breaking scenes today. I really feel for Annabelle right now.
Reginald came into the town, framed them for murder, revealed their existence to the town and that means the destruction of their quiet lives and the death of a major character.
Anyway, lots of success today. Hope for more.
