that the next version of the book is finished. Again, the beta readers did a fabulous job, and I can’t say thank you enough to all the people who helped to make this book better. I’m on the last chapter, then the book will go over to Robin for copy edits. Once that is done I’ll make the limited edition print copies for those that won the various giveaways.
This of course won’t be the “final” book released. There are many things in the road between here and “published.” We have another beta read starting in January. If the book is picked up by a traditional publisher, then they will have their own team of editors (both structural and copy editors) go over it. But we have taken another step closer and that’s a good thing.
As for what’s next for me now that I’m done with beta changes…I need to get back into book #4. Yes, it’s written but I have to go over it again before anyone else (even Robin) can see it. My hope was to get it to her for a Christmas present. We’ll see if I’m able to make that deadline or not. Lots more to do – but a lot done as well.
