- Oh yeah, I'm introducing a new character named Jeb three chapters back when the velociraptor jumps out of the jungle, but not until I do revisions. He's a hunter with some magical skills and a mysterious past. So when you see Jeb mentioned, you'll know it's him.
- You know how that vampire kicked Jessica's ass? Well, I'm changing it so that Marcus rushes in and saves her. But I'll fix that in revisions.
- This whole subplot with Marlena trying to infiltrate the werewolf lair isn't working out so well, I'm going to take it out in revisions, so I won't mention it in the rest of the book.
Which brings me to the main reason I use alpha readers. I tell my alphas that there will be times my writing SUCKS, ignore that, as hard as it is to send. And some days it's HARD. The only thing that let's me press send is knowing that they know I am capable of writing; they're just not seeing it in this email. Their job is to look at story, plot and characters. And to tell me that they love it.
