It’s been a while since I’ve had time to write an “official” update on my website, and for that I apologize. Everything is crazy, and the world hasn’t been “normal” for quite some time now.
But I wanted to drop in with an April update and my goals moving forward, so you know exactly where I’m at in this writing process.
Here what I have planned for Clara and Daphne these next upcoming months:
- April: finish 2nd draft
- May: if not finished with 2nd draft, finish it here (preferably at the beginning of the month), send book off to CP (critique partner) for review
- June: review/apply feedback from CP. Send book off to beta readers
- July: Review/apply feedback from beta readers. Purchase cover art. *Side note: this is also when Imaginarium Book Festival will be taking place! Hope to see you there!
- August: Final draft/read-through. Get everything ready for publication. Order proofs (if the book is ready for that part of the process)
That’s about as far as I’ve gotten so far in my planning. After August it’s kind of up in the air, depending on where we are in terms of the book being ready and if the artwork for the cover is ready yet.
This book is definitely set to release later in the year –I’m thinking December at this point because I think that gives me plenty of time to make sure everything is ready. Also it’s rare I release a book in the winter months, so it’ll be exciting to release this book (hopefully) in time for Christmas!
Obviously this is all planned based around what I think I can get done. This may all change as we move forward, but I love having a rough plan right now.
I will continue to keep you guys updated daily on Instagram and Facebook with my progress. Hope you enjoy the quotes and teasers I’ve been sharing so far!
Thanks for all your support as always!
Hope you’re staying safe and healthy.
