Fifth Free Serialized Issue of The Truth About Cinnamon Now Available for Downloading
Another Monday has arrived, and I’m sort of excited that I’m staying on schedule with the promised serialization. Separating each chapter from the book and making sure each paragraph is still in the right place is more complicated that I understood in the beginning.
The “book block” created by the publisher is in a very different format than we’re used to as we plug away using Word on our computers. So, ensuring that the serialized chapters still look like the book takes a little more work than you’d imagine, which is why I’m pleasantly surprised that I’ve been able to stay on schedule.
For your reading pleasure, you can find the fifth serialized issue at http://www.filedby.com/author/cheri_laser/2721580/documents/25781400/.
Yesterday, at long last, I completed the editing process that grew out of my beta readers’ input. Consequently, this post is going to be very short because I now need to enter into the to-do list for getting the manuscript submitted to the publisher. I’m expecting this to take a few hours, and hopefully I’ll find some time to squeeze in another post tomorrow or Wednesday, to fill you in on what actually turned out to be involved.
As soon as that submission process is complete, I’ll get back into the edit of Cinnamon (target: reduce the original by as close to 100 pages as I can get), which will lead to the release of a newly published 2nd Edition of that first novel in a few months.
The good news on this rainy (monsoon, actually) Monday morning is that The Plan is clearly moving forward and fully back on track now. The goal is to hold two new books in my hands by June, and hopefully to have a few of you out there who’ll be interested in reading them. We will have learned along together as the books are ushered through the writing, editing, and production processes. What happens after the books are released will be a whole new learning process for us all.
Well, at least no one can say we’re sitting idle, right?
Hope you all have a wonderful and productive week!
