Holy shnot that took longer than I expected. Edit 8, which I expect (and hope) to be the most extensive edit, is over.
But the editing is not yet complete. Edit 9 will involve me going through each character's arcs and making sure they are coherent. A couple likely need scenes added. Some will be deleted.
Edit 10 will be my sensory edit. This means I will look at sensory details and descriptions and make sure they are 1) short and 2) engaging. I try to use minimal description to maximum effect. Please note that this doesn't mean I'm good at it.
Edit 11 will be an emotion edit. Are characters behaving in ways that appropriate to both their situation and their character?
After that I should finally be ready for proofing (getting the book printed with the cover, and check for more mundane mechanical errors).
