Editing in Progress

Shackleton’s Folly is in at the editor getting the full treatment.  It has been hard not opening up the file and working on it some.  Very exciting seeing it get to this point because it means the release date will be within 30 days.

Beta Reader

Wow, finally finished working on all the beta reader comments made on the first round.  A total of 502 comments good and things to fix made and responded to.  Now working on another round which I hope to be the last major review before going to proof reading.  The end is in sight!

Rewrites in progress

The time for release of Shackleton’s Folly grows closer all the time. I have completed edits for the first 245 pages and will be working on the rest as soon as they come back. Then it is off to the proofreader for a final clean up. Then it is time to publish!  Shooting for a mid-October release but anything can happen.

I meet Derek Murphy at the Willamette Writer’s Conference 2014.  He is an excellent resource for someone putting a book project together.  He helps indie authors put their best face forward with a fantastic book cover.  If you are interested in his wonderful work I would suggest going here to this link.

Fantastic Space Art!
