So I spent most of the weekend working through the feedback from my proofreader. Guess what. I got a third of the way through my book!
It actually wasn't too bad at all. She's very perceptive and noticed a lot of errors I would have never seen. I'm very impressed with her work.
When I listed out my planned expenses for Book 2, the proofreader was the one I was the most iffy about. "Can't I just read it myself or get someone I know to proofread it for free?" I asked. The answer is "No!"
She's a professional, and it shows. So, there will be a lot fewer errors in Book 2 than there was in Book 1. Thanks to a large number of interested fans, most of the mistakes in Book 1 have been corrected for the eBook version. I don't think I'll have to go through that with the sequel. So, there's that.
Anyway, edits are coming along great. I should be done by the end of the week which is WAY before I anticipated. That means I'll be able to get started on the audio book for Book 2 a month ahead of schedule!
Which reminds me: don't forget about the Drive to 25 Campaign! We're trying to get to 25 copies of the Book 1 audio book sold by November. Currently, we're at 19. Please help by sharing these blog posts or sharing links to my audio book.
