3 words to sum up my day! — Beach. Nap. Hulu. 😀
I wasn’t planning to edit tonight, but I’m really trying to finish this massive round of edits I’ve been working on, so I might. — A lot of sentence restructuring because I managed to write waaaaayyy too much passive action. — But! Every bit of the editing is worth it & we’ll get it done guys. 🙂
Right now, I’m kicked back on the couch watching the Spring Baking Championship on Hulu. & as much as it pains me to trade that in for more tedious editing, I really should.
Writing, editing, promoting, marketing, and publishing a book is a lot of work guys. I never really thought much past writing it. But now that I’ve finished that… oh, boy. — It’s far more work than the writing ever was. That was the easy part!
Recently, I mentioned the book was loosely titled, Coming Home, but that it was an incredibly loose title because there are already over 35 books titled Coming Home. — That didn’t seem like a good idea.
So I spent some time mulling it over the other night and managed to nail down a book cover theme for the series. The exact book cover ideas for books 1 & 2. And! I have a completely different loose title for book 1 now. — Forgiving Annaleigh. It’s still subject to change. I won’t know for sure until we get closer. But for now, that’s where it’s at.
We’d already started on a book cover for book 1, but, I wasn’t all that happy with where it was going so I pumped the brakes on that to try & figure out where I we needed to go with it. — Now that’s done! So we’ll be diving back into that & getting to work on the covers for books 1 & 2.
As soon as I’ve finished editing book 1 for the 4th time around, which should be this week, I’ll jump back into book 2. — I’m roughly 20,000 words in & it shouldn’t take all that long to knock it out. — Then onto editing it. Oh, joy. 😉
I’m just going to keep on keeping on. I’m trying to publish the first 3 books in the series this year. Fingers crossed guys!
I think it’ll get easier once I’ve completed the process from writing all the way to publication for book 1. Right now it’s all so new and everything is a learning curve.
Hang tight. It’s coming! 🙂
