As I sit here watching Die Hard on this fine Saturday morning, I thought I’d post an update on where things are.
I finished the third draft early this week. There’s around eight new chapters and three or four have been expanded further, but were previously existing chapters.
I’ve also spoken with a few more editors and am planning to make a final choice shortly, once I hear back from one more (that came highly recommended). Pretty exciting stuff!
At this point, I’m just looking forward to being done with this whole part of the process.
I’ve started thinking through ideas for book covers and have discussed it with the designer who’ll be doing the work — she had some ideas, as well. So hopefully we’ll move forward with that in time for the edit to be complete.
It’s looking more and more like this is going to take longer than I originally thought, which bums me out a bit. But it’s a learning process and I’ll know better for next time, I suppose.
I can’t wait for you all to read the final book. It’s something I’ve come to love over the last five months and I hope you will, too!
