Is It a June Update already?!

Okay, let’s get right down to the nitty gritty! Do I have a publication date? No! I don’t.

Am I close to providing one? Yes! Yes I am. I imagine I’ll know once I hire an editor after my alphas have read it in the next 4-16 weeks (no I can’t be more precise +P).

If you’re still reading, I’m going to go into more depth with all the speculation. If you’re pissed and ready to stab me with your stylus, well, aim away from the eyes as I’m learning to paint and I already suck with both intact.


On Tuesday, I’ve promised to send–I’m gonna call her Alpha One–the third or fourth to last chapter of the book. The next three/four chapters will be sent as they’re completed to Alpha One.  This process could be anywhere from 4-16 weeks. Send good vibes my way for four. If you’re wondering how many words or chapters, read the next paragraph. If not, skip!

Technically, by Tuesday, Alpha One will receive chapter 16. But I am probably going to split up chapters when I revise the entire book. Atm, there’s 19 or 20 chapters. I expect that to expand. It’s already contracted too much heh (from 31 to 20). I don’t know how many words because I’ve stopped using Scrivener (a writing program) and started to use word 2013 (Do not buy this. It’s the worst ever and I”m sorry I paid for it! >8(). I’ll guesstimate the wordcount at 90,000 total (depending on how much I cut). So, four more chapters. The last two chapters have taken 3 weeks and 4 weeks/ each, respectively. But, final two chapters (which is final chapter + epilogue) are mapped out pretty well in my head!

That’s where we are with NSI.

What else am I doing? I have another story-fantasy–that I’ve also started with a character named Tom(I don’t have much done on that). Shatterproof has about 5k words written for it and on my downtime.

Well, that’s another issue of Updates from Dani. You can leave the comments down below and, as always, tomatoes thrown will be made into soup–possibly a bisque if I’m feeling fancy and haven’t burned the kitchen down with my other attempts at cooking–and any and all complaints are registered and promptly forgotten.

PS: I dunno if you know this, but I’m always open to questions.
