Waiting for the book “Richly Drawn”? Time for a quick update! I’m delivering a new draft to Inkshares in January.
What does this mean for you? Well, it means there are still several months left before you get your copy of the book. Sorry about that! The publishing business may seem slow, but it is a very thorough and good process. My editor and I are hard at work making “Richly Drawn” as strong as it can be, and we hope you’ll enjoy the final result.
So while you wait, have a wonderful holiday season and a happy new year. I’ll come back to you as soon as I have more concrete news.
So I got an exciting update from Inkshares this weekend. “Richly Drawn” will be assigned an editor by May, and the editorial process will then begin.
As many of you already know, a professionally released book isn’t merely written by an author, but it is also goes through a long process of notes, changes, rewrites and polishes. At Inkshares and at other publishers, this process usually takes up to a year – so for those of you who pre-ordered the book (again, a thousand-times thank you!) I’m afraid you’ll have to wait quite some time still to get your copy of “Richly Drawn."
The editorial process helps a book reach its full potential, so it’s worth waiting for. I’m really excited to get started, and I’ll keep you posted as things moves along.
Richly Drawn placed second in the Inkshares Mystery & Thriller competition. It will be published. And that is all because of you readers.
I am truly grateful, and quite frankly, still in shock. There is only one thing I can say, and that is thanks aplenty!
All the best,
