We have high expectations for November this year. And so far, two days in, everything is going according to plan. We are still aiming to release Holly Virginia before the end of the year, and Return to Gaia as well, barring any unforeseen difficulties.
How close are we? Eric has completed his final edits on Holly Virginia. Anne is on pace to finish her final edits in the next two days and Nancy is over 75% finished with her own hack and slash. Once we’re all happy with the manuscript, we’ve got our beta reader standing by, ready with her reading glasses and the big red pen of doom. The cover is complete, as is the jacket blurb. When we get it back from the beta reader, it will be a matter of a few days of formatting for Kindle Direct Publishing and Createspace and then we’ll go live. It is all very exciting to see a project so close to fruition.
Return to Gaia is also quite far along in the process. We have approximately eighteen chapters remaining of the first draft and then it will be ready for rewrites and final edits. The cover is also complete but we haven’t written the dreaded synopsis yet.
We’re hoping to hit it hard before the holiday season gets into full swing. We’ll keep you posted on our progress!
Anne, Nancy and Eric
