Well, in our last post Lisa talked about her dissertation. She's collecting data now. Not as fast as she'd like but it's happening. She's also gearing up for two conferences and trying to plan a family reunion. So, she's busy. And I'm not exactly going slow either.
I'm pushing the release date for Johnson Farm back to late winter / early spring. It will be better for marketing. I'm still planning on having the book ready to go by the end of the year, I just want a better slot for marketing it. The current plan is to get the main editing finished by November 1. Then I will be writing the sequel as a NANOWRIMO project before finishing the final edits in December. The book is really coming together. It's actually gotten positive reviews in the second round of people reading it (which is kind of important because this is the first time I've let a teenager get her hands on it, and it's a YA book). So stay tuned to find out how you can get your hands on a copy (I'm going to be offering signed books and some other swag when the book comes out...
I mentioned I'm doing the sequel next month. I'm also putting together a proposal for a personal finance book which will be my early 2017 new writing project (I'll also be editing the second novel and working on the zombies book). So, hope fully two out next year and maybe three in 2018 it's going to take a lot of work, but people are realizing I'm happier and easier to deal with if I'm writing (so people are starting to learn to leave me alone and let me write!).
All in all it seems like we're never quite at rest, but it's a good thing... progress is happening.
That's about it for this one...
Until next time I'll leave you with this thought of what the novel process is like (thanks to Learningelvish)
If you're not sure how this applies to writing a novel, try writing one this November... You'll find out!
