I’m making good progress on Book Four. The final read-through is complete and I’ve applied about 70% of the changes. With luck I’ll finish those this weekend. I also need to tweak the last couple of pages, I’m not happy with a couple of the hooks leading into the next book and will probably remove them.
Then it’s just a matter of running the automated checks and spell checker over it one last time before it’s ready to go to my editor. Exciting times!
So am I keeping to the schedule I laid out (repeated below)? Nearly. I’ve been running about 5 to 7 days late from the start because it took me a bit longer to re-read the first three books than I’d allowed for, but that’s staying quite consistent. So good news so far and I think a mid September release is still definitely on the cards.
In case you missed the timeline before here it is again…
