I am thrilled and proud and relieved to announce that the 'backward edit' is finished. And to celebrate, I am finally revealing the cover for Alonca's Quest! And while I'm at it, I'll reveal the release date of May 22, 2018. Thank you all for your encouragement during this process. It's been lovely to wake up and find happy emails from new readers! I'll be getting the preorder page ready soon, and of course I'll announce that, as well. Thanks again!
Hello, friends, this is just a quick note to let you know that I am nearly halfway through the final edit on Alonca's Quest, which is a backward edit to catch all the little things one doesn't usually see when reading a story from beginning to finish.
I take one chapter at a time and read it backward, sentence by sentence, so I don't get caught up in the story and miss something. It's a bit tedious, but worth the effort since it substantially improves the finished product.
After this will be formatting, and then it will go out to the Advance Review team and to my secret weapon, an editor fan who will tell me if I missed anything else...
So, as of now, it's looking like it will be released end of May or early June! It's exciting. I can't wait to get back to writing the fourth book and take a break from the technical aspects of publishing for a while. The fourth book is going to be the best ever, I think, but let's not get ahead of ourselves.
Thanks for reading, everyone! I appreciate your patience. I know AQ has been a long time coming.
