This week I'm celebrating:
1) I got 6 more chapters revised this week, that puts me at the halfway point. Yay!
2) I'm pretty pleased with myself for getting so much done. But this fast full-revision would never be possible if I hadn't gotten such awesome & helpful feedback from my wonderful CPs: Kate, Tania, Kim, Stuart, and Dave. You guys ROCK!!
3) This week, I also managed to do a crit for a multi-published horror author, and also reviewed a book by another multi-published horror author. And both thanked me very nicely! It feels good to be starting to know successful authors in my genre. :)
4) I just realized I know more UK Horror authors than US ones. I'm not sure why that's surprising, but it is... My fav Sci-Fi author is British too. Hmm. Maybe I'm a closet Anglophile.
Do you know a lot of people from other countries? Or do your connections mostly come from your own country?
