At the present moment, Unknown is going through the final stages of editing. My wonderful editor/sister/amazing author finished it a few days ago (thank you a million times) and right now, my mom (known in some circles as the “Typo Queen”) is reading through it and combing for the many typos I so often include. (Thank you a million times, too!) So after the Typo Queen is done with her editing, I have one more time through the book, and then it’s off to the races.
Which makes me very excited and terrified at the same time. But I will be so happy to be done editing this thing!
So while Unknown is in other hands, I began on my next editing project. (No, I didn’t want to, but I really needed to get a head start while I still have a good amount of time on my hands.) This is the second book in the Grace Sufficient series, and it stars some side characters who appeared in Unknown. This one actually started out under 100K (yay!), and I’m hoping to keep cutting it down to a more concise size. Because I’m very good at being concise. As you can tell from this rambling post, right?
But I’m on the more fun part of editing right now, which is a lot of rewriting, cutting out unnecessary stuff, and exploring themes more thoroughly. Lord-willing, it will be released sometime in early 2022, but we’ll see what an exhausted college student says about that later. 🙂
As for writing … well, that’s why I had to add that whole editing thing into the title. I’m not currently writing anything new. My poor “current” project I was working on before I began editing Unknown is sitting at around 23,000 words, and the poor thing is going to keep sitting there for the foreseeable future. Maybe sometime in the next few months I’ll pull it out and see what I can do for it. But I mean, it’s the second in a series, and neither of them even have titles. Or a series name. Bad author alert.
What are you working on right now? I’d love to hear how everything’s going!
