Enchanted Editing

I am pleased to report that the first read through edit of Enchanted has gone quite well, and I should be officially done with it tonight. I’ll let it rest for a few days before I do another read through, and in the meantime I hope Myrrhlynn and I get a chance to discuss the cover art.

I’m looking at releasing it either Thursday, October 10 or Thursday, October 17. For once I am quite confident that I won’t run out of time, the delay actually has more to do with the next book I’m releasing. It’s going to be a longer book (somewhere between 65,000 and 75,000 words) which means it’s going to take me twice as long to write it. I thought delaying the release of Enchanted by a week or two might soften the blow of not releasing another book until December. Regardless, as soon as I can make an informed decision I shall post my choice on here, as well as the days Enchanted will be offered for free.

In case you were wondering, The Wadsworth Handbook has been a terrific help with editing. It is unfortunately wordy and almost snobby in the way it labels and declares things, but it has great examples and a lot of helpful hints. I suspect I will have to purchase it, it is a reference book and I cannot hope to remember–long term anyway–all the rules it presents.

Have a great day, Champions, and I will see you Friday.
