SCBWI Update Coming Soon...Finishing Nightshade Edits!

Hello everyone!

Just wanted to let you know I'm a little MIA this week trying to finish my NIGHTSHADE CITY edits for my editor. They are complete, but I'm doing a final read through, catching any of those niggling little typos and things like that! With any luck, I'll be handing them in Friday morning to Julie Amper, hopefully for the last time...copyedits here I come! ;)

I've a lot to tell you about the SCBWI last weekend, tons of helpful tips from editors on what they're looking for, from picture books to YA. It was a great day and I met so many people! Such a great way to connect with other writers. I promise to have a post for you on Friday, so stay tuned!

That's it for now! Back to Nightshade edits for me!

xoxo -- Hilary

    Hi Hilary,

    I met you last weekend! I'm a PB writer. Can't wait to see what you got out of the SCBWI. I thought it was great! Can't wait to read your first book! Good luck with your edits!

  3. Hi, Hilary!
    I've seen your posts over at JacketFlap and I came by to congratulate you on your book - so exciting! I absolutely LOVE the title! :)
    I'm going to follow your blog, and I invite you to visit me as well.

  4. Thanks, Shannon!

    It's so very exciting! I'm turning my edits in to my editor in just a few hours! I'm hoping will be done after that, but who knows! I would love to reading your blog!

    Take care!

    xoxo -- Hilary
