Thanks to Alice, who read my synopsis, I am now reworking the second half of Spirit of the Mountain. And I like the changes. I no longer have two hero type characters. Hawk is now a bad guy and because of it I will get some powerful, compelling scenes. Thank you, Alice!
The only problem is I don't know if I'll hit my deadline by doing this. And if I don't hit my deadline, I may not make the other contest I was hoping to enter by the end of the month. But right now my focus is on this book and getting it to agents and maybe a couple of editors. I do know this will be a much better book and I am more excited than ever to get it finished!
