Today I have decided to revisit, The Thousand Year Curse. This is book one in my curses series. I took about two weeks off from it and refused to look at it. I have some friends editing it but personally I ignored it. Today I think I am going to print it and edit it, for the last time. I'm not sure why it even needs another edit. This will be the third physical print I have done. Thankfully, I am in college so I can print for free in the library.
I feel like I want to add some new things. I want more dialogue. I'm not sure though. I have always heard that you shouldn't add things to your book. Editing should always been cutting it down and taking words out. I'm not sure what to do. I guess I will just go with the flow. However, I am excited because I'll be one step closer to finishing this project.
Editing is such a pain in the butt. I went on amazon's create space which is a self publishing website. It is really great. You can pick what to do, if you want an editor, designer etc. However, when I looked, it was crazy expensive. To have a person edit it just for grammar, it was like 2,000 dollars.
My manuscript is 90,000 words so it costs more. I don't have that kind of money! I'm a freaking student. Anyways, I feel a little defeated. I feel like my book is so good! I just need a little extra. I want to put it out there ASAP but I want it to be perfect. I guess I should start saving some money. :(
In the meantime, here I come edit 3!

What Readers Have to Say...
"An absolutely heart wrenching read that shows us that at times no matter how much we hope, darkness will find its way to win. "
-Blogger's From Down Under for A Reliant Love
"So this book is the ultimate love story. I like how two ordinary people who is so different and still so alike in so many ways can overcome everything together."
-Angelica Berglund for For The Love of Hockey
"I never thought I would read a "zombie book", much less love one. The Last Legacy really surprised me. Even with the whole people-eating-people thing, it was a fantastic book"
-Melannie S for The Last Legacy
"I could not wait to start book two. If this book was as good as book one, then I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. It wasn't as good as book one...it was better. "
-Keely Retchloff for Finding Sam
"The powers, the love, the excitement, the drama kept me so enthralled. If you are looking for a GREAT series about true love and mythology, look no further... I wish I could rate 10 stars! Definitely recommend this whole series to all my book loving friends!"
-The Book Blog for A Curse Books Trilogy
"For the Love of Ash" by Taylor Lavati was a rare 5-star read for me. I honestly find many typical romances rather dull and predictable. This was not the case at all here; there was nothing average about the romance, overall storyline, and the long list of supporting characters."
-Summer's Book Blog for For The Love of Ash
"Wingless isn't what I would normally pick up and read, but thought I'd try it out and I am so glad I did. The characters and "worlds" she creates are done so well that you can actually picture them and feel like you are there right along with the characters."
-JLH for Wingless
