Good news! I just got the first round copy edit back from INkShares. That means we’re on schedule. Actually a little bit ahead of schedule. That doesn’t mean I have a date yet but it means we can now start talking cover art, audiobook narrator and all that stuff. Then it will just be up to Inkshares to decide where to slot it in for their fall/winter schedule. I’ll let y’all know as soon as I have a date that is safe to give out publicly!
This round of edits are done! Just sent back the manuscript to Inkshares incorporating some excellent beta reader feedback. The story definitely got stronger because of it and it gave me a chance to tighten up a few things too.
Looks like line edits then copy edits then we should have a date. Fingers crossed!
