In the meantime, while they read and mark up my manuscript, I've been working on a new Babet and Prosper novella. I like to write something short between novels. It helps clear my mind, so that when I go back to do rewrites, I'm more detached from my novel. A good thing. I can be more objective.
A reader wrote a review and said she'd like to see more of Evangeline in the Babet/Prosper series, so that's what I'm writing. I thank her for the suggestion.
