I’ve been pretty lazy so far this summer. I spent the first couple of weeks of it sleeping in (or getting up, driving my wife to work, then coming back home and taking a long nap) and binge-watching several shows on Netflix. The past couple of weeks, I’ve been driving for Uber, which has been a novel experience.
Editing has started, though it’s going slowly. I’ve made it to page 11 (of 118) of the manuscript. Admittedly, most of the editing for The Hidden Throne (book 2) will go pretty quick, because this book has already been through three rounds of self-editing. It was the only novel I ended up self-publishing, after all.
I have signed contracts for THT and a short story, both of which will appear sometime next year. So that’s pretty exciting! It does mean I need to get on the stick with the editing.
I’ve got a month or so left before I have to report back to school for teacher inservice. In that time, I should be able to get THT edited, and maybe get some more work done on book 5.
In the meantime, though, I have to go. Season Three of Bojack Horseman ain’t gonna binge-watch itself!
