Knee deep in second round of edits. Cover/blurb reveal will be in April.
Final read through complete. I had to add a few things here and there. Final word count (before edits) is now at 121K.
I’m officially in love with Vann and Dray.
Right now, the word count is over the 117K word count (before edits). I’m doing the final read through before sending it off to my editor. Once she has it in her hands and does a first pass, I can narrow down a release date.
I’m over 100K. *sigh* I was shooting to have this one be just under that mark, but I’m a little over, clocking in right now at about 106K. Good new is, I’m almost finished. Just a few finishing touches and a final read and trim before I send it off to my editor so she can work her magic. Once I’m in edits and get a little feedback, then I’ll have a better handle on planning a release date. At this point, I missed the first window of time I had discussed with my editor. But I wasn’t ready at that point and the story wasn’t “there” yet. So, I’ve got another date in mind for release, but it all depends on how much tweaking is needed while in edits.
I’m up to 90K. You know that feeling when you’re close to the finish line and you can see it? I’m there. YAY.
I’ve spoken with my editor to discuss timeframe/expectations and establish a deadline for the release I want. Now I’ve got my deadline. I’m crossing my fingers I can hit the deadline without issue. And if I can hit that date, then I’m hoping the first round of edits are smooth. I will keep you all posted on progress.
Overall tone/mood of the story… it has some angst, of course. I don’t think I can write without breaking my guys down a little. But on the angst meter, I’d say is waaaay less than Aidan’s book (thankfully), but a tiny bit more than Cole’s. So somewhere in between in a good estimate. And the angst declines as the story progresses.
It’s moving along well. I’m currently at 70K. I’m at about the 2/3 mark. Yay! Progress.
I’ve stated above 2017 as a release date. To narrow it down a little bit more, I’m shooting for a release before summer. I know that’s still a big window of time, but hey, I just reduced that window by 6 months.
And just in case you’re wondering…I’m truly loving these guys.
Coming Soon. *hides*
