This will most likely be my last update before the big event at the Greenwood Public Library, this Saturday, October 15th at 1pm. I really hope you can come by and see how book three is coming along. I’ll have a draft copy of the manuscript and a couple of the prototype covers that I and my creative consultant are working on for it. There will also be a little challenge for those of you who like to consider yourself an editor.
Chapter thirteen is complete and fourteen is over halfway there. I can not tell you how excited I am with the way the last half of this book has progressed. Thirteen and Fourteen are shaping up to be, in my honest assessment, some of the funnest and most exciting storytelling I’ve ever done. I just pray I can keep the pace up and have fifteen end on as high a note. Tonight’s goal is to finish fourteen and hopefully start on fifteen.
By and large, I should be done with the manuscript in the next week or so, but ending it by Saturday will probably not happen. My normal weekly writing schedule has been interrupted during the day as I try to encourage some new team members at work during my lunch breaks. I feel this important as things have been rocky over the last several months in our organization and with new people coming on board, I feel like it is important that they not only feel welcome and excited to be here, but comfortable with the people they work with.
So far, I’ve lined up a couple of proof readers for book three. If you are interested in being one of my army of proof readers, please let me know. In the past I’ve been fairly slack on when I get the manuscript back, but I’m really pushing to get the book into production before the end of the year, so as quick as you can turn it around it would be greatly appreciated. Again, the first completed draft should be available in the next week to ten days.
Until next time. Blessings to you and happy reading!
