Fly By

Sorry I haven’t been around gang, but I’m swamped. I just sent my urban fantasy in to my agent. The tweaking of the manuscript went on and on and on and on. I’ve made it almost halfway through Scarlet. I decided it would be ‘easier’ 🙄 to make sure the changes had been incorporated into the manuscript before I started reading. (Note to established and new authors: ALWAYS KEEP YOUR HARD COPY WITH THE CHANGES YOU MADE.) That way I wouldn’t have to worry and I’d be able to read for story/pleasure. It’s just taking longer than I’d anticipated. I’ve also only managed to write a few scenes for my vampire novella. As soon as I finish this read through, I’m going to start on it because I’ve been told by my editor that I can expect to receive copyedits for CRIMSON by mid-February. 😯

Now back to our regularly scheduled program.

  1. Wow. You are definitely busy. Good luck with the read through and the edits.

  2. Karin, Yeah, just a little. *g* I did manage to finish checking on the changes today. Now all I have to do is read the book and pray it’s what I intended it to be. 😯

  3. *sending good energy Jordan’s way*

    (is this the season for edits and stuff? so many of the authors whose blogs I read are right in the middle of this right now… heh, synchronicity, anyone?)

  4. Azteclady, Thank you! I need it. *g*

    To be honest, I think it’s just all the publishing houses getting back to work after the holidays. Most people probably have books coming out in the summer and in the fall like me (ie June and November).

  5. Has the editing process grown easier for you, Jordan, or regressed from excitement to drudgery?

  6. Bernard, The editing process just like the writing process NEVER gets easier. By this stage you’ve read the material so many times you’re sick of it. *ggg* The sad thing is it’s no reflection on the work. It’s just hard to see the pages with fresh eyes.
