Betrayal, Book One of the Judah and Tamar story
Wow! Revision two of the Judah and Tamar story, Song of the Terebinths, is done!
It has been a long haul to get this far, but the difficulties of making major revisions to a story are worth the effort. At the end of the process, revision after revision means that the plot, the tension and release, depth of the characters and the grammar will be such that the reader will have the best possible experience.
Basically, as Michael and I dug into the first revision, we came to some hard to handle road-blocks. Both of us were getting tired of the writing, the editing, the seemingly endless changes that needed to be made
Collaborations can be like that, for if you put one person in the room, there are at least 10 different opinions and ideas. But, when you put two people in the room, the number of opinions and ideas increases exponentially!
Yet, here we are, nearing the end of the long journey to get Book One of the Judah and Tamar story trilogy out to you, the readers. We are excited and eager for you to enjoy the next part of the journey with us.
Some of you will have the revision in front of your eyes soon. That’s because our own eyes are getting somewhat burned out. So we will rely on you to help us see things that we can’t see at this point. The rest of you will have to wait until the publication date in the Fall of 2013 (exact date TBA).
Meanwhile, we, the authors, will do our very best to bring you a really great story, written to the best of our combined abilities and the suggestions of those who help us in this last leg of the first leg of the journey.
Remember, there are still two more books to go in the Judah and Tamar story trilogy!
