Oh I am soooooo looking forward to this… but at the same time very nervous.
I got a lot of good advice on Reimarsoga. Seriously good stuff, and Beta Readers, thank you all.
Thousands of technical issues were caught… yeah, I know it’s over 1500, plus cultural references from one of my experts, and a few questions about the ecclesiastical underpinnings of things that I am mulling over as well.
I can’t wait to start, but I have to wait a little (till after I get home from doing adult/responsible like things, ugh.) And then dig into them.
And then there’s the next book which I am really champing at the bit to write.
Thanks to all the feedback, I’m having to push what I had previously written as the second book, back to third book status. At first I was really grumpy with this, because I really like what I have so far, but after a few conversations with some of the beta readers, I realized I had to put a new book in-between as next in chronological order, which is going to focus on Brother Finn. Ultimately, it will be a big help for the overall universe, and might work out better in the long run, making it possible for multiple books to be released this year. Who knows? Maybe I can go from 2 to 3. Hah!
At least I know how to speed up the process now.
Anyway, my goal, if I can meet it, is to have the 4th edit done in a week or two, and get it to an editor before the end of the month, and I can start writing forward again.
What’s really amazing is how much anxiety I am having over this all. I mean I just want to be published so badly but I cannot, dare not afford to put crap out there with a cheap cover. Gotta do it right if I’m going to do it at all. In this aspect, it’s been a fight with being patient. Everything will happen in the right timing I keep telling myself, despite the fact I want it faster than its going.
Okay, I gotta shup, go do necessary stuff and get back to edit.
