I was a bit optimistic on my timeline for the current edit. Nearing the halfway point of the book, but one of my chapters is a total mess and needs to be re-written. I had made some story changes which didn't fully integrate some of the events of the story, and I need to make sure story arcs are consistent. Still, I hope to release sometime in May.
I wanted to do a paper edit as I find it easier than editing everything on the computer. Plus, I can take it out and work outside if it's a nice day. So I was going to have it printed at Staples, but it was going to cost a fortune! (I think it was over $100). I found another place that would do it for about $40. It was enough printing that I would use a full cartridge if I did it myself. But, I managed to get a bound softcover for only $6.50. Odd to me that it was so much cheaper to print a proof than just print the pages off. Anyway the cover still isn't done so I mocked one up and have started going through and marking it up with a pencil. Definitely a lot easier and more fun to edit this way! I will be ot of town for a few days but hope to finish this edit by the end of next week. Cover may not get done until May due to delays, but hopefully I can launch as soon as it is ready.
I recently finished several years of employment with the Canadian government to pursue a Master's degree. My secret goal is to become a self-sustaining author. This blog is dedicated to the first book I have ever put on the market.
