Bacchus Is Finished

I just finished editing and formatting Phantom Warriors: Bacchus. I also started editing Phantom Warriors: Saber-tooth. Depending on how long my dentist appointment takes tomorrow, I should be able to get it done. That will leave one long novella left to edit. It should be interesting because I haven’t read HOT SHOT in years. The good thing is I’d prepared it for submission. The bad news is that was YEARS ago. To say my writing has changed is an UNDERSTATEMENT. YIKES!!!

I have so much work to do before I leave for the Novelist Inc. Conference. I’m really starting to feel the pressure. I have to get the novellas edited this week, then I’ll have exactly 18 days to finish edits on my YA. I have two hundred and sixty something pages to go. GULP! I have a feeling I’m going to be scarce–even more so than I already am. Which is a drag, since there are a few blog entries that I’d really like to make this week. Maybe I’ll do those in the mornings, when my brain is useless. 🙂

In the meantime, here is the cover for Phantom Warriors: Saber-tooth. As you might guess, it’s rather difficult to get a photo of a saber-tooth tiger, so we had to make do. It’s not as striking as Bacchus, but I still like it.

  1. So…I’ve been lurking on your blog for at least a year since I came across “Red” and I’m finally moved to post and tell you how much I enjoy reading your blog, especially in regards to what you write & your thoughts on self publishing. I also really love seeing all your wonderful covers! Your cover artist is very talented!

    Even though your schedule seems pretty booked up, I hope you’re able to find some pockets of time to relax! 🙂

  2. Oh Saber-Tooth, rawwwr! You can do those edits in time for NINC, and then relax on the beach with a virtuous glow of victory. : D

  3. Audrey, Thank you for coming out of lurk mode to say hello. I’m glad you’ve enjoyed the blog. The big entry I’d like to write is more about self-publishing and authorial direction. Yes, Frauke does a wonderful job with the covers. I’m very happy with them.

    I will find time to relax…probably over the holidays. 😉 Until then, I have a bunch of stuff I really want to get done before the end of the year.

  4. Charli, I’m not sure it’ll be a virtuous glow of victory or the tattered remains of roadkill. LOL!
