I finished the fourth draft last week, and if all goes well, that should be my last revision. Now I’ve just got to send it back out to my team, make the necessary edits, and do a few polishing runs. I’m finally approaching the end of this tunnel!
The publication timeline is slowly coming into focus, but I don’t have a date yet. Part of that will depend on my cover artist. Hopefully I’ll have a better idea in the next month or so.
Now that I’m getting so close to the end, I’ve started looking ahead to book two. I’m really excited to get back into editing that one. It’s actually the first novel I wrote–way back in 2010. The story needs a lot of work. And, I realized, it’s another red-headed protagonist. Which, oops. I swear I only have two! =)
