Congratulations! Hmm... editing tips. Put it aside for a month and then come back to it. Don't fall prey to trying to edit when you do the first read through. Take notes on continuity issues or any plot holes that stand out. Write a one sentence description of each scene, helps with plot analysis. Make sure everything is resolved. Make sure every scene counts and if it's unnecessary mark it for removal. Then... a ton more stuff! Hah... maybe I'll make a post later with a list of all the stuff I do. I'm about to start editing my manuscript so it's all I've been thinking about lately.
Grats again and good luck when you do start to edit! :)

Good luck to you too! Editing doesn't sound easy, but mostly time consuming.

yep! Definitely time consuming. I've already started chapter one and have read it like ten different times trying to get things perfect. Hopefully it will be worth it in the end!

Hi! First I'm going to start by saying why I'm wrote my book. I was tired of reading about vampire books with friendly vampires or vampires where they acted more like people: Twilight, Coldest Girl In Coldtown, Vampire Diaries, Vampire Academy, Immortal Rules, etc. So, I decided to write a book about a brother and a sister living in a world where vampires have taken over and killed almost everyone. Humans live underground to survive. Brother and sister are vampire hunters and the story progresses from there...hope its something that might interest you!
