October 22, 2010

Last night, I finally finished the last draft of my work in progress, Hidden Truths.

After working on the story for one year (one and a half if I count research) and writing four drafts, it feels great to finally send it off to be published.

Again, I want to say thank you to my beta readers, critique partners, and test readers who helped and supported me. I know it’s quite a committment, especially since — like all of my books — Hidden Truths ended up a “monster” of 153,000 words.

To celebrate, I thought I’d give away a free copy of each of my novels, Backwards to Oregon (the prequel to Hidden Truths), Conflict of Interest, Next of Kin, and Second Nature, to the first four people who correctly guess the most read post on my blog. I’ll give you a hint: it’s one of the 27 posts from April 2010.

Leave a comment or send me an e-mail (jae_s1978 AT yahoo.de) with your guess.
