I know it's been too long since I posted, so here goes. I did some editing after my initial draft feedback. I sent out a new draft for more feedback, and so far so good. I think it's close enough to move into final prep.
Remaining things are: 1) Final nits from readers 2) Sharpen up fight scenes (trying to find a way to make them more interesting and not ridiculous.) 3) Naming one last character (why am I so bad at naming? ugh!) 4) Copy editing 5) Cover Design 6) Blurb
Likely to follow after initial Kindle Book release: 1) Any artwork (like maps) 2) Any appendices 3) Formatting for paperback version
I really want it done by the end of this year. I know I've blown through a lot of deadlines, but I'm so close this time so no excuses!
