Hello Meredith! So glad to hear that Hardline is ready to read. I hope you can enjoy some off time to regroup. You deserve it. I have a question about when your writing. Do you have that one person you let read whatever you're writing while you're writing?
My first beta reader is my husband, but I don't usually show him anything until it's close to finished. I also have a small trusted group of beta readers who get the first unedited version of the book and provide their initial feedback prior to publishing.
