It’s been *checks other post* about a month since my last update and I figured that’s about right for a new one. I might do more updates sooner, but I’ll try not to make them longer. I do have news and it’s good, better and meh, depending on your outlook =D To those who loved Shattered Glass, it’s probably rainbows and kittens and glittery fountains of man-sugar falling from the sky and landing naked and tied up on your soft bed…I forgot where I was going with this sentence. Unimportant, because now you’re thinking of naked men falling from the sky and I have you singing It’s Raining Men for the rest of the day.
And THAT is how it’s done, George.
Now that I made you read that, there’s a tl;dr at the bottom =p
I’ll do Shattered Glass news first. The audiobook for Shattered Glass has been completed and hopefully will be available on audible/itunes/amazon any day now. When it hits, I’m going to be giving away a few copies. Stay tuned.
Speaking of giveaways, I’ve offered signed or unsigned paperbacks or ebooks (unsigned ofc, unless you want to send me your kindles and I’ll draw penises…er, a signature on them.) there’s also 2 vouchers you could win for a copy of NSI. So go comment on the blog if you’re interested: Rainbow Gold Reviews.
Onto the important stuff that I know you’re waiting for: NSI.
How’s that going? Well, actually really well. My main beta reader has had the first 13 chapters and one she has mentioned needing no work! =D A lot of them need a lot of work and the rest need a medium amount of work. I’ve promised her at least a chapter a week…or, um, maybe a week and half, two weeks….two weeks max *cough*. Regular chapters! I’ve promised her regular chapters. So far, I’ve lived up to that! So that’s where we are in the editing/beta process. How it goes from here is this:
She finishes beta’ing the rest of NSI, then I make the changes and then she and another beta get that revised copy. Then I edit those changes. Then my third beta reader gets it–this is my grammar nazi. I edit her changes and then it’s to my hired professional editor and copy editors(the same guy who did SG).
That sounds like an awful lot, but understand that when I decided to self-publish, I wanted my best work out there. When you get NSI, you’ll know that you’re getting something I took pride in creating.
So that’s where we are. I’m going to go hide in the bathroom with my tablet while you throw tomatoes at me for taking so long.
