This is a very exciting post for me. Book Four is currently in the revision stages with edits and comments flying in from all over the place. The army of editors and proofreaders that are pouring over the manuscript have been providing some amazing feedback which I can only be thankful for. I am hoping to have most of the reviews back to me in the next week or so. In either case, I plan on working on the next revision starting either this weekend or on Monday at the latest. The goal is to have the book ready for production by the end of February at the latest.
I am also excited about the prospects of some upcoming book signing events that I have been working on. The next event I will be at is the INDYpendent Creator Show on April 1st. This event is part of the larger Who’s Yer Con 10 which will be held at the Wyndham West Hotel in Indianapolis on March 30 – April 1. There will be artist, authors and comic book creators from all over and should be an exciting time. The overall event is a great family gaming event, and you simply cannot beat the admission price — FREE.
The next event that I am working on, but have not finalized, is InConJunction, July 6-8 at the Indianapolis Marriott East. I am awaiting confirmation for the event, but everything is looking promising. I will share more details about this event as it gets closer.
The last event I will share with you could be a game changer for me. I have submitted an application for the author’s avenue at this year’s GenCon. Some of you may not know this, but it is the largest event of its kind and it is held in Indianapolis every year. Last year’s attendance was over 200K. My application has been submitted, and I suspect that the review process as well as the competition for spots will be fierce. The opportunity to showcase The Silverwood Chronicles would be an enormous boost and something I’ve considered for the last two years. I’ll keep you posted as I know more.
Finally, the remaining chapters of book five now have a rough outline. I hope to begin work on the draft very soon. Given GenCon’s August date, it is possible, although unlikely, that I could have it completed by then. Prayers are appreciated.
