Who'd have thought that I (with all my struggling) would get The Ultimate Evil's word count higher? Not me. Nope, definately, not me.

But guess what? I did! As you can tell from the title of this post, the story is up to 54,000 words! My friend's suggestions were great (haven't fully completed them yet) and there's a chance that I will be able to get The Ultimate Evil up to at least 55K. Wow, I can remember when it was only 48K. That was a long time ago.

It's been a week since I first submitted to Firebrand but I haven't heard back yet. Not surprising, but I will continue to keep you updated.

It's great that you're making your book a solid read. I struggle with word counts that are too high, and I absolutely suck at cutting.

Yeah, I'm still low for YA, but it's getting better. My friend wanted me to extend some things to make the whole thing even more interesting.
