OMG – it’s done. I almost can’t believe it.
But yes, it is actually over.
Book 3, Change of Darkness, is now with the publisher!
This is great news for you, as the book is on track at this point for release on 31 July 2018.
Its also good news for you, as now my beta readers can have a break and my advanced readers can start getting excited.
And its good news for me, because I can finally chill…the last few weeks have been mornings of 5am, crushing in edits, going off to do other work, coming home and doing more editing and polishing until late, and conferring at appropriate times with my amazing editor who lives in the USA.
Yes, its a crazy thing sometimes being a writer. At times, my friends are like, ‘Why work so hard?’ Why don’t you just push back the launch date and take it a little easier?’
Because that’s not how books are written and delivered, and because that’s not the person I am. I set a goal, I meet it.
Another piece of excellent news for you as a reader? Book 3, Change of Darkness, is an action packed 142,000+ words long! That is great value for you! Sure, I thought about splitting the book into two, but it just wouldn’t have worked for me this round.
And that reminds me (does a little dance in front of computer) – I just sent a 142,000 word book to my publisher!!! That’s the third one!
I mean, you think it takes a lot of work to write a book? Well that’s nothing compared to the challenge of editing and polishing one to the point where you can hand it off to the editor. And any author gets a little crazy and tense during the editing process.
But, like I said, its done, and I truly believe this book is going to be the best one so far!
But will it be the end of the series….?
Guess you’re going to have to read and find out on 31 July 2018 🙂
