I'm so pleased you are here today. I hope this post finds you well, and if not, I hope whatever clouds lour upon your day pass by quickly.
This morning, I submitted the manuscript for Book 03 to my editor! I mentioned before how I have run into trouble for this book with my cover, layout, interior, and editing. For now, the editing issue is resolved. I'm getting to work with a wonderful soul on my book, and I couldn't be more excited about it.
It will take my editor about a month to complete the edits. I asked for a more in-depth edit this time. Also, there are extenuating circumstances that will slow the process down. It's not anything bad or particularly trying; it's just life. I'm patient. This is a good thing.
Anyway, the good news is I've got a terrific editor reading my book and the resulting manuscript is going to be fantastic. I can't wait for you to get to read this one. I certainly think it's the best one yet.
Next up, I have to start getting the interior art finished. I have the roses done, now I just have to commission the other illustrations. The Huntsman and the Vampire had a lot of illustrations, Book 03 will not. The latest manuscript is about 5,000 words longer then Book 02, so as a result, I'm going to cut back on interior art.
I'll be back with more updates as the process goes along. Be well and take care of one another.
