Dragonverse 2 in final draft

My wife has completed her proofing of Ishnef's Revenge.  All of her changes are now incorporated into the draft.  I will be doing another quick scan of the book before final formatting and submission to the publisher.  I will be creating several different versions: One for Createspace which will become the printed version; One for Smashwords for submission to Meatgrinder; And one for submission to Amazon.  I hope to have the electronic version ready by next Monday and the printed copies in my hand in a few weeks.

Phobia

It has been too long since I have written a blog entry.  My only excuse is the fact that I've been working 12 hour nights six days a week and on my one day off I'm trying to keep up with the yard and house work.  I have, however, managed to work on my next book which is tentatively titled "Phobia".  I say tentative because I am not sure I'm going to keep that title.  It doesn't have that science fiction ring to it.  Anyway, I'm up to page 48 and things are progressing smoothly.  The book was stuck in limbo for a long time while I tried to figure out where to go with it.  That little problem has been worked out.  My advise for new writers - keep your day job and just write whenever and wherever you can.  I get a 30 minute unpaid lunch which means I can do pretty much anything I want.  So, I write while I eat.  Any time I am idle, I think about my current work and, if I have a computer handy, I write.

Until next time.
