August Wrap-up

     Well, on ce again I'm late getting the wrap-up in, but this time I actually have a legitimate excuse as I'm teaching again, and a little behidn on that, so it's only natural this has fallen behind as well. Blood and Stones has undergone its revisions for the Blackthorn Club, and now it's out to friends for a final perusal. I do mean final, as well. I will examine recommendations they put to me, but I'm not going to do another full read and revision of this thing unless a publisher or agent has suggestions.
     Hopefully, in about a week's time (the deadline I have given the aforementioned people) I will begin sending out query letters to see if there are any bites. I'm also looking to post the entire novel on Authonomy for some more critiquing and ideas. Likely to be followed by Vampire Shadows and eventually Halloween Scourge
     Speaking of which, the story has already well surpassed Blood and Stones in length, and will likely outdo Vampire Shadows as well. Hopefully, though, it will be finished before NaNoWriMo starts up again.
     Well, I've rambled this for longer than I intended. Time to get back to my day job. Here are the totals for August.

Came over from Authonomy.....really liked your book. Have to warn you though that, by having it up there, you will get a ton more suggestions from people - not so good if you've decided you have got a final edit!!
Mind you, I thought that when I posted up my book - and the feedback from people has been beyond useful. have now re-edited several more times and feel/hope it's better than before.
What's with the graph? Not very good with graphs.
All best, Jane

Thank you for your comment, and I'm enjoying Authonomy so far. The graphs are me trying to be accountable for writing. I try to write 1,000 words every day, though I have also been interchanging that with bouts of editing. Days when I only write 100 are actually when I edit a chapter of my book. I find that having a graph helps keep me honest about staying on top of things. For more on this, look at the Clockwork post in Feb of 2008. Thanks for commenting!
