So many things to talk about. Because things are happening, guys. Lots of things. Or, well, maybe just a few, but they’re major. To me. Maybe even some of you. 😉
First and foremost, I’d like to announce that I have finished the outline of From Heights We Fall! It’s not my longest by any means, but neither is it that short at 10,400 words. I feel fairly good about it at the moment, but that could change. There’s still a round of review/revision to do with it. Yes, I even revise my outlines. I like to review it before I write anyway, so I have a sense of the whole story in my head. I think it might be a little longer when I’m done with it, but not much longer, probably not over 11k.
Since we’re in the announcement mode already, I’ll also mention that I am now working on the final revisions for Possession. The plan is to hopefully be done by Sunday, but if I have to delay starting July Camp NaNo a couple days to finish these revisions, so be it. I’ve done it before and still managed to finish the novel in less than 30 days. I can do it again. For those who weren’t here at the time or are keeping score, that was August Camp last year, and the second book of the Necromantic trilogy. I’m fairly sure I can do it again if necessary. I need to get Possession ready and have eARCs set to go before I dive into FHWF, since I suspect I’ll be totally lost once that story begins.
Actually, the truth is I’m looking forward to diving into these revisions, partly to see what my editor said and partly because that’s one step closer to getting Possession into the hands of readers. That’s one of the things I’ve loved about having Bound out there. I don’t always know how to react when someone says they’re reading it or they’re going to, when they say they have read it. But I love it. Don’t let my sometimes awkward responses fool you. It delights me. I just have no idea what to say without sounding arrogant or like I think you shouldn’t enjoy it. So instead I sound kind of stiff and/or stupid to myself. But I smile big every time, I promise. Sometimes it even salvages a really crappy day.
One last thing I want to share out with everyone. I’m holding a little contest over at my author’s page on FB. IF (and only if) we can get the page to 50 Likes by Sunday, I’m going to give away a $10 Amazon gift card to one of those who have liked the page, chosen at random. The link is in the column on the right side of the page, but I’ll make it easy and put the link here too. So what do you say? I mean, you like me enough to read this post… Mb Like me a little more? 🙂
