Today I welcome author Diana Waters to the blog to talking about the editing process.
1) Tell us a bit about you and your writing
My name is Diana and I’m a New Zealander currently living in rural Japan, where I’ve mostly been based since 2012. I devour novels of all kinds but have a particular love for fantasy, historical fiction, and M/M romance – hence my first published work of fiction, Wild Magics #1: A Trust to Follow, is a historical-fantasy novella centered around two male characters who are very much in love with one another. A Trust to Follow was originally published with Wayward Ink Publishing in May 2016, and then re-edited, re-covered and re-homed in May 2018 with eXtasy Books. The full-size novel sequel, Wild Magics #2: Kaidyn’s Courage, is set a decade or so later in a neighbouring kingdom. As of this writing, it’s either due to be released very shortly or has very recently been released, also with eXtasy Books. Wild Magics #3 (as yet untitled), the final planned book in the series, is in its final drafting stages. Once this is submitted for publication, I have several new ideas I’m playing around with and am very much looking forward to getting properly stuck into.
