Destruction Road

Old Cover
I wrote an 11,000 word novelette a long time ago. Then I reworked it a few times and sent it to my friend Tim Ward who was kind enough to edit it for me. Then it sat—for a long time. But I finally buckled down and went through my book again revising it with the help of his edits! I also noticed a few things that could really be improved upon while going through the story again years later. It is a much stronger book now. It used to be called "A Second Chance." The story is the same, but now it's called "Destruction Road" and I think it's a much better version.

I learned a lot going through Tim's edits! It was also really fun. Even though it was a lot of work and very time consuming I really enjoyed the process. Something surprised me about it too. As I read Tim's comments and saw his handiwork on my manuscript I kind of felt like we were hanging out—or at least corresponding. I can imagine authors with a regular editor are very thankful for them.

Tim is an awesome author. I recently finished his book Scavenger: Evolution. It was great! Check out more about Tim on his website and read his books because they're awesome! Here's an affiliate link for his book: Scavenger: Evolution: (Sand Divers, Book One)

Get the book for free at Amazon or in any eBook format of your choice at Smashwords! Enjoy! Thanks for stopping by.
