Daisy--Final Draft Done

By Josi S. Kilpack

Wahooo! I'm the first to finish my personal revisions! Not that it's a contest but I totally smoked the team!

Ahem, anyway, we'll be trading manuscripts here in a few days and start editing each others stuff to make sure it's all coordinating, it's been a really fun process having other people write parts of the story that I then change to my character's POV. And, this is the first book I've ever written in first person. I had a really hard time with it at first, but then eventually got the hang of it, although in my revision I would find paragraphs here and there where I'd flipped back into third person.

Exciting stuff!

My official Pitch for DAISY:

Since becoming a mother at the age of 17, Daisy has looked forward to the day when she could check "motherhood" off her list of things to do. At the age of 46 everything seems to be right on track, until she suddenly finds herself facing a very different future then she planned on and an uncomfortable evaluation of the past she thought she understood.
