It was another productive week on the writing/editing front. I've completed the preliminary edit for the first half of The Deliverers 2: Order of the Crystal Lion. My editing system consists of three phases. I give the book a read through, fixing punctuation, spelling, and conducting minor rewrites.
After that, phase three will consist of giving the book another read through to hopefully pick up anything I may have missed previously, and find anything that doesn't sound right. I'm hoping to have everything completed by the end of November. Then, I have to decide if I want to spend the money to have it professionally edited or not. That will hinge on what I've got in the budget, and how good I feel about the book.
So far, I'm feeling pretty good about the book. There are fewer holes and things that have to be shored up than I thought there would be. Of course that could change as the book goes on, because there were a lot of twists that came up later in the book. I'll let you know as I work through the process.
This week was also busy on the audio book front. At this time last week, Jimm Singer had completed 11 chapters of The Deliverers: Sharky and the Jewel. As of today, he's completed eight more chapters. It all sounds really great. Yesterday, I posted an interview with Jimm along with a sneak peek of the audio book--chapter 14. I'm looking forward to the release of the audio book so that you all can hear it. It makes the book really come alive.
I have another appearance scheduled for November. I will be at the Ladies Day Out event on November 25th in Danbury, Connecticut. Again, if you're in the area, stop on by. I'd love to see you! Have a great week!
