so today more good news. my super editor and I agreed that what my book is really about is a coming of age story for a vampire. now I need to change the pov to his which means a rewrite of the first half plus add to holes in the plot that were there. this is good and bad. it's good because I think it would allow more of Sidney to shine and he is a complex and awesome character. the bad is the obvious. more work. :( maybe tomorrow I will feel better.
