Well, all 119k of Selkie is now read, with minor changes along the way. I'm not sure whether I'm the best judge or if I'll ever have enough distance from this novel, but the terms that come to mind are compelling and traumatizing. This novel, which was supposed to fit the paranormal romance category, has both paranormal and romance, but it's the romance of Wuthering Heights. Powerful and literary. Hard to place. On the other hand, it has a strong voice.

As stupid as it may seem, I think I can sell this one. My greatest fear in that case is whether I'll ever be able to write something that can come after it.

So anyway, on to the next step. I get to try and edit it, catching things that I didn't see in the read through. Not sure what changes I'll make if anything :p. On the other hand, I haven't spell checked so that should keep me busy :).

The edit will start next week to give me a breather and some illusion of distance ;).
