The editing is over. Thank goodness! Now comes all that other stuff, like laying out the paperback, creating the ebook, writing the adcopy (!), etc. I don’t particularly enjoy writing adcopy–actually it makes me downright grumpy. Grumpy enough that my wife notices. I think it’s the fact that it’s generally less than 200 words but can take a week to get right. It just feels like progress is sooo slow.
But I have picked a release date: October 24th, 2017! I picked this date based on my time estimates for getting everything done, but when I looked October 24, 2016 is the day I began writing The Brummie Con, so releasing it exactly one year later has a nice sense of balance to it (despite my hope that I would put it out in four months [ha!]). Ah, well. I can’t wait to be done with this one. Even though it took longer to write than I hoped and had a number of setbacks, I think it’s pretty awesome.
Next time I’ll release the cover and blurb! October 24 can’t come fast enough!
