Hey everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful start of the new year. I just have a few updates to talk about this week, so I’ll jump right in!
I am starting the final arc of book 2 today with chapter 23. The book is currently sitting at 105k words, and book 2 will be finished at the end of this arc. I’m unsure how long this arc will be because this arc contains something I have yet to write before, although I am really excited about! I can tell you the final arc goes from 0 to 100 really quick and doesn’t stop until the end. I have reached out to my previous editor, and the plan is to send her the manuscript by Jan 15th. From there it usually takes 30 days for edits and corrections. I am hopeful my updated self-editing process should reduce the time for the finished product, and hopefully we can get it sooner. We’ll see.
Request for Beta Readers:
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to become a beta reader. You will get the book early, and will be able to give feedback.
Audiobook & Art:
I just want to set the precedence that the audiobook may take longer than initially predicted. Speaking with other authors and hearing about what they are going through, once the audiobook is complete it can take up to 30 days to finish QC and then another 2-3 weeks to show up on Amazon. I’ll keep you all updated on the progress as I find it. Last week I put forth the order to have Sophia’s and Saïgra’s character sheets commissioned. That means we’ll get the character sheet plus three additional standalone images for each of the characters in various poses and outfits.
That’s it for me this week. I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead!
