I looked at the calendar yesterday and discovered it’s the middle of November. Where the hell did the last two months go?
Work continues on TLM. I think most of the major rewrites are behind me. I could be wrong, but for now I remain optimistic. Right now I’m tackling chapter four, the first long chapter of the current draft, and my goal is to trim it down from 9k words to 7k. This will be accomplished by eliminating a full scene and ending the chapter sooner, leaving the rest to kick off chapter five.
Right now my goal is to have Ch.4 done before the Thanksgiving holiday. With any luck, I may have Ch. 5 done before then, too, but I don’t want to get ahead of myself. This is the plan. I still can’t say when the book’s going to be done; Amelia and I still have another pass after this one, to tidy and tighten up things.
Hopefully most of you are still interested in TLM by the time it’s done.
Book Signing Event
My signing at The Book Nook in Boyertown has been rescheduled for this Sunday, 11/20/11, from 1 to 4 PM, barring any freak snow storms and other random acts of chaos. If you’re in the area, stop by and say hello.
That Twitter Contest
It’s still happening. We’re halfway through November, which means you’ve only got a couple more weeks to get the ALT ebook for free and be entered into the contest. All you have to do is go here and click the big button. That’s it.
Speaking of Clicking Buttons . . .
Recently, someone brought this to my attention. On Amazon, you have the ability to click “like” at the top of a product’s page, next to its title. The more “likes” it has, the more visible it becomes to others on the site.
So, if you have thirty seconds to spare, and if you liked ALT, I’d greatly appreciate it if you could go and click ALT’s Like button. I have 5 so far. I’d like to see it grow to 10 or 20.
Also, if you haven’t done so already, please rate it and leave a review. I try not to pester people about this too much, but those little things make a huge difference to a book’s visibility, so if you’ve got a couple of minutes, please consider giving it a rating and/or a review.
Well, I think that’s all for now. Erica’s going to take some photos at the signing. I’ll try and post them before the holiday.
