I admit I was stunned, hurt, maybe even a little offended. I just knew I'd get the story accepted as is.
But now that I've begun evaluating the editor notes, PM'd the marketing manager who is also an Evernight author for some advice - I'm feeling better about the story and the changes I've already made and will continue to make.
The story will be more emotional, not necessarily a bad thing, right? It will also help to make Hannah's Bliss better. I've had to stop my story development for now, though I have most of it down. I'm anxious to get Hannah's Bliss written.
I've got some surprises in store, relating to Rocco Moretti's character so this revision request is messing with my surprise timelines. I want to finish revising and resubmit The Warrior's Whisper in the next several days.
