I’ve been talking a lot, for months, about OP-GHO. You’re probably wondering, after teasing this back in 2014, where the heck the story has been all this time. As you know, my life doesn’t always take a direct trajectory toward publishing.
OP-GHO has been in the works for years because I was closing out graduate school. Then, I was producing and promoting Trailokya. While I focused on the trilogy, I had a daughter. I wrote the story. Yes, it’s written. But, although it is written, I feel it has to sit for a bit and then be revisited with fresh eyes. Now that Lucent is no longer in production, I can focus on redrafting OP-GHO as necessary and then hiring an editor.
Finding an editor isn’t as easy as it sounds. You have to get the right fit! For a historical work, it’s important to find someone who knows the subject matter. This helps them find language that doesn’t fit the period, and keeps you on track.
Would you like to hear some of it? Being my most popular novel, I can imagine people are excited to finally get a peek!
