She’s Back!

Today my Galveston ghost story, which I really should start referring to by its name – Storms of Malhado – came back from the editor. I haven’t really had time to fully delve into the comments, but I scanned the letter the editor sent, and they are exactly the type of insights I need, suggestions on how to build tension, how much of the different story lines to reveal where, etc. I’m looking forward to getting back to Katie, Suzanne, and Betty – though of course I’m also a bit scared because the work left to do is meticulous and important. I’m so happy though! The editor has pointed out some very useful things. For example, although I wrote it and did so purposefully, I hadn’t realized where a turning point is for Katie that completely changes her fate, and had not given enough attention to underscoring the significance of that moment. Also, I have not named the horses. How do y’all feel about Fiona and Jack?
