Okay, so you all know that I actually haven’t been writing (I tried to convince myself that then I would study more…) because my exams are coming up and even though they don’t matter, I planned to study for about two weeks…
Yeah, I know, I know… Even though I didn’t touch my laptop until last night, I actually read a lot and thought about what I would write… And what else I still need to sort through until I actually get as far as hitting publish ( OMG, I will hit publish one day???) and it’s a lot. I mean, you need to consider a lot of things that I never thought I could consider so many different things… Including the fact of what I’d do before publishing.
Obviously being an author is NOT cheap, especially not when starting, so I thought about the editing process. I know what readers think (especially because whenever I am a reader I am like that, too), but by now I know that especially for debuts it’s hard to pay for an editor. Does that mean my book will be fully of mistakes? No. I will count on a handful of people that I’ll handpick and that promised to read my book. They might not be professional editors, but they are passionate readers, and, honestly, who could be better for me than that? No one, I think. I love them for being my trial bunnies. They are awesome.
Besides that I think I am finally closer to a date where I can actually publish the book… I mean, you all know how things are with tentative dates, but I can say that as of right now it looks really good for a december release. As in… VERY good. Of course that depends a lot on the fact that my bestest PA Yvi takes away from her time to edit the first rough draft… And I swear, so far it’s really rough! *winks* Jaden really wants this story done though because he hopes he gets some quiet time with Maya then… We will see, I guess.
What else does it depend on? Nothing more but the fact that I really want to have a good feeling about that book before I bring that book to any market – and with that finally giving you what you liked my page for.
Until then though this is what’s going on right now in my writer’s life.
Thank you for being here and reading that.
