It’s been a week since The Scandalous Mrs. Wilson hit the shelves! To celebrate, we’ve decided to release a little bonus content. One of the hardest tasks a writer faces is deciding what to leave in and what to edit out of the final document. We were lucky to be able to draw on the advice of the eagle-eyed editors at Crimson Books, my agent, and the friends and family who read early drafts. (Thanks to all of you!)
There were definitely a few sections that we hated to let go, but that didn’t have a place in the final manuscript. In the literary community, this process is called “murdering your darlings.” So, here are a few darlings that we murdered in the revision process. If you’ve ever wanted to know what was in the letter to the editor that Mrs. McSheen wrote, or what article Owen published about Fraser Springs, check out our bonus content section.
