Good news - I submitted Book 2 to the publisher! So far, my January 2020 release is still plausible.
I'm excited and nervous at the same time. There were so many problems (mostly on my end) with the first novel that I took my time with book 2. I wanted to make sure things went smoothly, and I'm hoping that the extra time and energy on the project will help the editors with their jobs.
What that means is the third book will need to be in pre-production. Book 3 will need to be rewritten to accommodate the changes in the cannon. It's a shame because the entire trilogy was almost completed before Melange accepted my novels. After talking with the editor, who has helped me immensely throughout this experience, I agreed to rewrite book 1, not thinking about the ripple it would cause down the entire trilogy. But even with the rewriting of the whole series, this has been a fun and interesting experience.
That's it for now. Until next time, thanks for stopping by. More ridiculousness to come,
