I've been working diligently editing my book, Midnight Playground Where the Soul Plays. It's taken me almost as long to edit it as it did to write it. But I have to say, it's really good. The feedback from my beta-readers has been amazing and encouraging.
I sent the final draft and the cover artwork to the publisher earlier this week. It seems very surreal. The book could be available as soon as Christmas and as late at March. Either way, I know that when it's ready it'll be the right time. I've had wonderful support throughout the whole process from my family, my friends and my editor. His feedback was immeasurable! He saved the world from my first draft, ha ha ha!
I saw this on a wooden sign at a store in Chicago recently:
She believe she could, so she did
Yep, you're right. I bought it.
I'm excited to get to this next stage (production) and then head back to my keyboard and my office/study at home to work on the sequel to Midnight Playground, finish Purg-A-Tory and my transporter series.
I've treated myself to an upstairs study. I kicked the Rockstar to the basement and moved the Sage to another room so I could have my own library/office/study. I feel like a proper grownup now. The Rockstar protested initially, but I think he kind of likes his mini apartment. Of course, I have to remind myself that the putrid smell coming from the basement is of his soccer cleats and not a dead animal. He'll be off to college in twelve months. I'll miss him, but not that smell.
Oh and it's been three years since my surgery and I'm still cancer-free!!!! More on that in future posts.
Below is a picture I took of the Ferris Wheel in Seattle! Yeah, I've been vacationing a bit as well as writing and editing. I'll post pics from our absolutely beautiful hikes in Oregon and Seattle, Washington soon.
