When It Rains, It Pours, Part 3,008
For now, though, I'll start by saying that when it rains it pours. I've noted this before, but it's just funny how the motto never loses relevance. Just as I'm really getting into the groove of BLOODLANDS, along comes work for other books that'll be released this year. I received one line edit (the copy an author receives after the copy editors have gone over it). Then came a second line edit. Then a third delivery, but this one was an author alteration copy (also called a "galley," which is how the manuscript looks before it goes to print. The writer gets one more chance to alter the content.). Yow!
So, for several days, I've got to go away from BLOODLANDS and get my mind in these other stories. But that's life. That's how it always happens. The publishers have a schedule, just like I do, and it's up to me to put aside days to address the work, because I know the copies are coming. It's just that stepping away from the story you're totally immersed in is...GAH!!!
Talk to you this week, you all. :)
