It’s UPDATE day!

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.

Mission Accomplished!

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.

TL;DR:

  • giveaway for SG here: http://rainbowgoldreviews.wordpress.com/
  • NSI months away
  • SG audibook out soon
  • Dani hiding while pitchforks are assembled
