The chapter Gifts from the Dead looks like a keeper. Adding those 3000 words pretty much blew out all the other savings I had made, but I still have nine chapters to edit and still finding things to cut. Here are the results of chapters 19 and 20. Not counting Gifts from the Dead, I’ve cut about 6% of the original word count, which I’m very pleased with.
