I’ve been writing just about every day on Linear Shift, Part 2, and I am through 9 of the 17 planned scenes for the book. I have had a running word count target of 23,000 words, but updated it to 26,000 words a scene or two into the process. Well, I am here to update it again! After writing through the half way point of scene, I am now estimating the target count to come in around 32,000 words. And honestly, I think I will pass that up as well. it’s all good though, right? More story for you!
Based on the revised count, I am at 56% complete through last night. I hope to knock out another scene tonight, and one tomorrow night. Then it’s 2 scenes per day through the weekend. I’ve got next week ear-marked for the first round of rewrites, and then off to the editor on Thursday. Then it sits for 4 weeks while she massages it into legible goodness! Probably a week or two more rewrites after she is done, and then PUBLISH, Baby!
On the matter of editing, I have decided to do another Kickstarter campaign to cover editing. As my book sales from Part 1 are so small (shed’s a tear), I would like to see if I could get a small chunk of the editing fees covered. I already have the cover paid for, as well as the ISBN’s, so I’m thinking around $200 to $250 should do it. I’ve got a few weeks to decide whether or not to do it, but I’ll certainly post something here when I decide.
Also, I have a bunch of Bookmarks left over from Linear Shift, Part 1’s promotion. If there is anyone that wants one, shoot me a self addressed stamped envelope, and I’ll send you a few. I’ll even sign them if you would like. You can send it to:Paul B. Kohler P.O.Box 621866 Littleton, CO 80162
I also have about a dozen print books left that I am thinking about signing them and offering them here. Any interest? Just shoot me a message or leave a comment here.
I think that is about it on the Book front.
