This is THE BRIDE PRIZE, the first novella in the series and the next ms that’s up for revisions. In contrast to DEVIL’S RETURN, this one will require some serious work because hero and heroine meet way too late in the story. In addition, there’s also too much background info. *sigh*
To be fair, I knew that even before I sent the novellas to my editor, but, you know, I’d hoped it wouldn’t be too bad…. But as far as the excess of background info is concerned, it’s exactly as bad as I had feared.
So this weekend, it’s “Kill your darlings” time!
