So my mom finished reading my manuscript yesterday. I’m floating on cloud 9 right now because it seems she couldn’t put it down. When I gave it to her on Tuesday, she told me to give her a while to finish it (which I assumed to mean a few weeks). She finished it in two days!!!
I’m sure some of you authors out there can relate to this: Having an unpublished novel is like having read an amazing book and having no one to discuss it with. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t talk about it anyways, but this one-sided conversations usually ended in someone changing the subject with good reason, I suppose. A huge thanks to my mom for giving my book a general thumbs up, giving me some well-needed feedback, and giving me someone to talk to about my baby.
