It’s a holiday here in the States, so I’m not going to be writing my usual entry. What time I use on writing I would like to use on getting the new book off the ground, as it’s finally taking shape in a proper fashion. So, in no particular order:
- If you haven’t noticed already, I’ve opened up an official The Corridors of the Dead page. Right now it’s just a scratch blurb description, which I expect to change in the near-future, but it will give you a taste of what’s coming. I also expect to add a sample chapter once we’ve finished the editing process, hopefully in a couple of weeks.
- I now have a fan page on Facebook. Go here to check it out (Official Fan Site), and, if you like anything I’ve written here, could you please give me a like?
- I’ve decided that, while I can give my novel a good solid edit, I’d rather free my time up for writing the next one, and am trying to recruit a freelance editor. I’ve asked a friend who is a particularly great editor, but haven’t heard back yet. If she falls through, does anyone have advice for either a fairly cheap editor or a site that could direct me toward one? I’d especially like one with whom I could build a long-term relationship, but I know that might not be possible.
- The City of the Dead is Plotted! At least, at a high level. I know the major peaks and valleys; they came to me while I was driving home yesterday, and I had to get them dictated. I think it’s going to be good, but obviously there’s quite a bit of work down the road.
- Entanglements is looking a lot better. The characters are all clearly defined in my head, and I have a bulls-eye at which I can aim.
- Lynn Rush, who I’ve come to know through Goodreads, is having a big online release party tomorrow with some cool prizes like a free Kindle, an Amazon gift card, and copies of her book. I’ve featured Lynn here before, so please go over and check out her party tomorrow.
Okay so a few more sites from other great writers, maybe? Yeah that sounds good.
- While Reading Angels may not review books that are my cup of tea, I enjoy Angela’s style and she always has some great giveaways.
- Jim Brockett has overcome his fear of writing at a surprising age and published his first novel this year! I think it’s an awesome story. Check out his site.
- And of course, as always, my buddy, the excellent Paul Dail, has updated about a day in the life of his mind. I was quite surprised just how closely I can relate.
That’s all for today! More to tend to tomorrow, along with a more “normal” update.
