It’s been quite a while since I did an update blog, though I’ve managed to do a few video updates. I’ve actually dictated a few progress blogs, but never got as far as transcribing them and they quickly became out of date. So — there’s some big news in this update.
The biggest news is that the first self-edit of Wanderer Book Five is complete. That means there’s just the technical review to complete before I put the book down and take a break from it. That technical side includes spellchecking, grammar checking and running it through my own custom tool the spot various other problems.
Then I’ll leave the book for a couple of months. Towards the end of that time I’m going to reread the first four Wanderer books to make sure there’s no loose ends I missed. I’m aiming to pick up book five again around mid December, and will be aiming to send it to my editor in January.
After that I need to make any changes the editor flags, http://www.mindanews.com/buy-accutane/ send it to the proofreader, make more changes, send it to the beta readers, make even more changes, and then… finally… it will be ready for release. I don’t have an exact date yet but once it reaches my editor be putting a more robust timeline in place.
The other big news is that I’m working my way through Dark Soul Silenced books one and two. That’s partly to spruce them up a bit, as my writing has improved greatly the three years since I wrote those two books, and partly so I can immerse myself in the Dark Soul world again. Once I’ve finished with the two books I’ll start mapping out the story for Dark Soul three in a lot more detail, and then start on the book… which I can’t wait for.
That’s about it for now, though there’s a number of other projects and working on in the background which will come to fruition over the next few months to a year. More on those when there’s more to say.
