Okay – full disclosure: While I’ve been working on final edits for Breath of Angel with the production department, I’ve also been preparing my submission of the manuscript for Book Two in the Angelaeon Circle series, Eye of the Sword, for the acquisitions editor. My contract was for two books with options to negotiate on the rest. My deadline for Book Two is TODAY! The contract says I’m to send an electronic copy and a hard copy. Done.
So the process starts all over again. Next I’ll hear a detailed critique of the overall story of Eye of the Sword with suggestions for revisions – macro, big-picture stuff. With Breath, I had six weeks to revise. I expect the same this time, but we’ll see. It’s starting to feel like a lifestyle – one I like.
As for Breath of Angel, I’ll get ARC’s (advance reader’s copies) soon, as well as the near-final typeset version to review and make sure it’s right. And – drum roll – I plan to have a contest for one blog reader to win an ARC. So stay tuned!
