Happy day. I have completed the first draft of book three, officially titled, Prophet to the Outerlands. I have already started doing the first revision which I may or may not get done before I decide just to hand it off to my army of editors.
Speaking of my army of editors, if you haven’t reached out to me yet and you’d like to help proofread/edit the manuscript, please reach out to me. There is never enough editors on a book, in my current humble opinion. I have a pretty tight deadline for the edits to be returned, end of November, so I may even divvy up the responsibilities so that I can get better coverage.
Also coming up is the November Holiday Fair at the Monroe County Fairgrounds on November 12th. I will be there along with my creative consultant signing books. This is a great opportunity to get that special reader in your family a unique gift for Christmas at an awsome price.
One last thing, next week begins NaNoWriMo which is National Novel Writing Month. I am planning on starting book four right away. The goal for NaNoWriMo is to write 50K words by the end of November. This means that I could have two-thirds of book four complete by the end of November. This also means my updates may be interrupted more than usual and shorter. Any encouragement during this marathon is appreciated as I expect the first week to be pretty exciting and then the last three weeks to be grueling and painful.
I’m hoping to start dropping cover idea’s out as well over the next several weeks for book three. I’m considering including chapter heading artwork in this book to dress things up a bit, but I don’t know if I have enough to make it work. We will just have to wait and see.
Thanks again. Blessings to you and happy reading.
