It's been strange lately. Yes, I speak of the COVID-19 pandemic. I'm not talking about the scariness of an incurable virus infecting thousands and thousands around the world. That's just terrible. No, I'm talking about the empty shelves of toilet paper, noodles, eggs, and more. I'm talking about driving through the city with no traffic. I'm talking about the lack of people in once crowded areas, and the closures of commonly commerced areas. For that, I'm not complaining. I mean, my once 1-hour trip to work only took 15 minutes. I'll take that as a win.
Now for the reason you're really here - Book 2. No, I don't have a release date. Not yet, at least. My publisher sent me the final proof to review and approve, and I just finished that read-through. It will be sent tonight, and I should have a release date soon. Yeah, I know it's the closing weeks of March, and I know I said the book would be released by March. But stuff happens, and projects get pushed back. Good news though, I've learned a lot about the publishing procedure, and I'm hoping books will go through the publishers smoother to get in your hands to enjoy.
As for the side project, I am about 40% through the rough draft. I've been using the lessons learned from the BoA series to make the second draft and re-writes easier to manage. I've been pleased with the current outcome, and I'm sure you will be pleased, too.
That should do it for now. Stay safe, and thanks for stopping by.
More ridiculousness to come,
