Revamp Is Done!

I wanted to finish my revamp for The Ultimate Evil before the end of April and I have succeeded. But along with some new scenes and dialogue, this story now has a new name.

And, no, it's not Shifter.

Alas, I just found out through Kristin Nelson's blog that one of her clients is coming out with a book titled The Shifter. So I can't use a title so similar. I mean, I probably could, but I don't want to. So I chose The Heart and the Horn.

In other news, I just submitted Khaladin to the McVeigh Agency. Maybe my first partial or full request will be coming soon. I don't know. I guess I just have to wait and see what the future holds. :)

Oh, The Heart and the Horn's new word count is 65K. I cut many of the chapters in half, which almost doubles the amount of the earlier version. But it is only 10K longer than the old one.

I SAW that on Kristin's blog...I should've emailed you right away and I thought about it for days and then just forgot. I am a loser! But I do like the new title!

No, Anita, you are NOT a loser! Far from it! I'm actually flattered that you thought of me when you saw that book. I actually got to contact the author over AW (she gave me a good natured hard time about the title) and she seems really nice. I enjoyed our chat. :)

Thanks for your opinion on the new title! Glad you like it! :D
