Hey guys. So you’ve probably figured out by now that I’m not huge on giving updates and doing the social media thing. I’m more focussed on writing! But I thought it was essential to give you a bell and let you know how things are progressing. Here’s what’s been happening:
Near the beginning of 2015, I had almost completed two separate first drafts of book 2. Neither of them were good enough, so I stopped for a while. Eventually, I found myself in South east Asia, thinking I was going there to teach English. Turned out, the best thing I got from that trip were the ideas for the second book. I’ve known how the story will end pretty much since the beginning, but I wasn’t totally sure exactly what came next — that’s what that trip gave me.
So I came home, began writing, and wrote it as a script first. That took all of six days. Then I started on the first draft, and you’ll be glad to know the first draft is FINISHED! 🙂 I’m on the first read through, after which I will have a printed copy, and I will post shots of it from all angles for you to glare at 🙂 (if you so desire ;).
After that comes proofreading, cover design and formatting, which altogether will probably take a month. So I’m looking at a May release. (Hope that’s good enough for you guys — I know you’ve been waiting quite a while to find out what happens to Jane and Max).
Thanks so much to everyone who posted a review or a comment or anything of that nature. Every single gesture like that makes A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE.
To Jane and Max! 🙂
