THE WARRIOR Update – November 10

Editing is finished. Files have been sent off for formatting. I really have no idea how this is moving so quickly and easily. Bevan magic maybe? If it is, I hope it’s Sloane’s, not TB’s. Because I refuse to jump off any cliffs into any rivers.

THE WARRIOR Update – October 22

THE WARRIOR is surprisingly on schedule. I just sent it off to the final editor. And I’ve seen a draft of the cover, which symbolizes the book so perfectly. Movement, beauty, violence… it’s breathtaking. I’m waiting on one final tweak before I can reveal it.

THE WARRIOR Update – October 13

First round of edits of THE WARRIOR are back and I’m about 50% through them. If all goes well, in about a week these edits should be finalized. The book then moves on to the next editor for the line edit/proofread. I’ve also submitted the book to my cover artist. First drafts of the front cover are due in a few days. (Eek!! Can’t wait!)

THE WARRIOR Update – September 23

I sent THE WARRIOR off to my editor about an hour ago. Final revisions added about a thousand words to the count. I could seriously revise and perfect for the rest of my life but at some point I have to call it because I DON’T WANT TO REVISE AND PERFECT THIS THING FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE. lol

It’s perfect timing, too, because Penned Con is in one week and I have a couple hundred of TB’s special dissolving cubes to wrap in brown paper and tie with string. Come see me there and you can help yourself to one. ;)
