A polished manuscript first, then onward towards the editors - right? Then book designing along with a cover for the book. My last racy story about sex, a police chief, who couldn't get enough, came out just before Halloween. No way that story wasn't going to be anything but nasty, you can't polish up lawn torpedos because they just don't shine. Now it's Halloween again, and my next tale involves what? a possible serial killer, or perhaps a mass shooter and how folks arrive at that point in their lives.
