The never-ending process

So my laptop is fixed and the computer guy put Word on it for me, which makes my life so much easier! I’m halfway through final edits of Unforeseen, the plots for books two and three and coming along nicely though I need to tie in book two with the overarching plot and then actually write the darn things.

But I’ve been doing my research for what’s coming next and my eyes have been opened. I thought writing and editing was the hardest part, but there’s also proofreading, formatting, writing acknowledgements, dedications (I’m sure I’m missing something),  before I can even think of publishing and marketing strategies. But the hard part is done, right?

I need some Dr. Pepper and pretzels to get through this process.



I have some fantastic news! Not only did I finish my own rewrites and edits for Unforeseen, I sent it to an editor not even three weeks ago. She should have it back to me next week. It’s a rather long story at 110k words, but I’m hoping she’ll help me trim some of the fat. I’m scouting agents and mulling over queries, but I might just self-publish this one. I’m not sure yet.

I am also working on books two and three in this series. The first two chapters of book two are written, but the rest of the plot is escaping me at the moment. But camp Nanowrimo starts tomorrow and I’m using it to get some of this first draft down.
