Just a quick note that I’ve reached the next stage in the writing process: sent off a complete draft to an editor. (To several, actually. But I’m very excited about one…) It’s made me think that editors are unsung heroes–like batting coaches. The good ones have a huge hand in the final product, but aside from a small mention in the acknowledgments, basically get no public credit for the work they do.
While it looks like I *could* maintain the original time line, with a “Fall 2011” publication (which would give me to December 21st, I guess), it looks like I’ll add another step into my process and have a professional designer work magic on it. I’m not sure exactly how long that will take, but I’m near certain that it’ll be 2012 before you’ll find it on Amazon.
