Sometimes It Takes an Army of Typing Elves


For an amateur author 70,000+ words to edit is a big task. It is only my second novel and larger than the first. Time management doesn’t seem to be on my side, since life lacks a pause button. I’ve been able to edit over 20,000 words to date. My first novel hit 50,500 words and had help with a paid editor. Not the case this time. Having as many words left to edit as my first novel is long shouldn’t take much to look over as long as my work schedule doesn’t conflict with my family or the paying job I have – and not forgetting to slip sleep in there when needed. Just remember, I’m working diligently to have this sequel out soon.

Adam Santo is a SciFi/Fantasy writer who enjoys the quiet moments to sit idly writing stories. His debut novel, Temperature: Dead and Rising, took the world for a ride they would soon not forget. Santo began plotting the second novel, Temperature: Bitter Cold, before the ink dried on his first book. Santo continues to write nonstop because he knows there is always a story waiting to get out. When he is not writing, Santo enjoys quality time with his family and friends, spending the occasional weekend at a movie theater, and reclaiming his youth when his son challenges him to a video game. Santo currently resides in sunny Florida with his beautiful wife and equally beautiful children.
