Book Two: Where We're At

I just finished the first book two editing session with Annetta "Netta the Editta" Ribken and wow, I have WAY LESS work to do on this sucker than I thought. One area to expand on, several to condense, some character names to change (I overdo names starting with T and A...waaaaitaminnit...) some breaking up of mega chapters (chapter 10 is 50 PAGES LONG) and that's about it.

Let me repeat: THAT'S ABOUT IT. We're talking about weeks, not months, to put this baby to bed. What this means is, if you're planning on pre-saling, better step it up. Presales make a great Christmas present, if your friends or significant others are fans. (I know one of you is getting one for Christmas--no, I'm not telling.)

I usually close pre-sales about a week to two weeks before the book is done. This is so people get the manuscript asap, I have funds to pay everyone, and there's time to get all the right attributions in the acknowledgments. So...there you have it, folks!

Oh btw: Book one ends here on December 30th. Obviously there's going to be a gap until book two starts. Just FYI.

I'm gonna start scrounging up money for the presale. Things have been tight this way, but I really wanna get it!

is damned impressive for someone working part time. I'll enjoy seeing my copy in my inbox!

Will that gap be filled by Scryer's Gulch? I've missed it lately.

And she said "When I've wrestled book two to the ground I'm going to write a bunch of Gulch. I hope." Smile

I've missed it too!
