And a good Saturday morning to all of you! This will be a quick post to let you know about a couple of exciting things that happened this week to feed the Plan.
- Yesterday I was notified that I’ve been selected as a “featured author” on the FiledBy.com website where I’ve been posting the free serialization of The Truth About Cinnamon. If you go to www.filedby.com, you’ll see the “Featured Authors” section right on the Home page. And, if you click on me, you’ll also be able to access each of the serialized issues … 🙂 … So, this was an unexpected and very exciting piece of news.
- Also, I was notified in the middle of the week that Separation of Faith will, in fact, be coming out with the “Editor’s Choice” imprint from the pubisher. Although I was overjoyed, I’ve been waiting to blog about the news because there’s a “contingent upon” clause that I’m trying to get clarified. Basically, the “Editor’s Choice” award requires that a book be meticulously edited to meet extremely strict criteria. I’m there, except for a final copyedit that we’re trying to work out. I’ll keep you posted.
Meanwhile, we’re in the midst of another massive storm as I write this, but this one is rain and wind instead of snow and wind. The storm’s category is still “nor’easter,” though, which means the thing is extremely robust and will supposedly be sitting on top of us until Monday. Thank goodness the temperature is above freezing, otherwise we’d be looking at another two feet of the white stuff.
On Monday, I’ll post some more interesting tips and information that I’ve been finding through my reading. The rest of this weekend will be spent on the reduction edit of Cinnamon, which is moving right along. So far I’ve eliminated 1.5% of the words I’m targeting, so there’s still a v-e-r-y long way to go. My goal is to be finished by the end of the month.
