Publishing Quest » 1 Month Until The Last Watch!



Celebrating ONE MONTH until the release of The Last Watch ON APRIL TWENTIETH TWO THOUSAND TWENTY-ONE! I’m not panicking you’re panicking! 😐


I’ve been thinking about starting a #NostalgiaFridays series with some behind-the-scenes of old drafts, notes, sketches, etc.—so to kick that off (on a Saturday yes), here are four of the many drafts of The Last Watch!


  1. First draft! (though I undergo an editing process after drafting each chapter/set of chapters I call “paper edits”, so it’s *kind of* a second draft)

  2. The draft after my agent edits (almost exclusively word count trim), and just prior to developmental edits with my editor

  3. ABM! (Advanced Bound Manuscript: after developmental edits but prior to copyedits)

  4. ARC! (After copyedits, but IIRC, prior to pass pages, I think. It’s all a blur.)


Reminder that TLW is available for preorder in paperback, ebook, and audiobook wherever books are sold. You can also read a free excerpt or download a sneak peek of the first four chapters!


You can also sign up for my newsletter for updates, add the book to your TBR on Goodreads, or request for early review on NetGalley or Edelweiss.
