Update on Davina's Story

I have taken all the comments my critique parner and my beta reader gave me and incorporated them into the manuscript. I'm now trying to finish the epilogue--usually my favorite part of a book when I'm reading. As happened with the rest of the book, I had to start over. I'd remembered that the Powers That Be at Ellora's Cave frown upon babies and/or pregnancy in epilogues. They see them as cliche. I see them as fitting.

However, this is one hill I'm not willing to die on. So instead of writing an epilogue that showed Davina four months along, I've had to rewind and show her just before the wedding instead. I'm actually glad it worked out this way because now I can bring Mariah, Paige and Livvy back for a cameo appearance in this--the last--volume in the Be-Wished series.
