Long-overdue update on IN BETA here. Inkshares and I just yesterday wrapped up a full year and a half of developmental edits. Developmental edits (for those who don’t know the nitty gritty of the editorial process) are working through all big picture story stuff. Making sure the chapters flow. Cutting characters. Fixing plot holes. Necessary but painfully large changes that (in my case) resulted in a near total rewrite.
I’m glad we’re done with that ;)
But there’s still a little more. We’re now moving into line edits, where we’ll make the language sing, punch up dialogue, add a joke here and there. This (I’ve heard) is a much more fun process. We’re also talking cover design, which is getting me stoked again.
The current publish date is June 11th, 2019: mark it on your calendars! And thanks again for the patience.
