Only slightly wet! 😉

Exciting times. I’ve been researching publishing and beginning to put together a plan for August and everything after. Looking at first printing through the local bookstore Village Books on their Espresso Print Machine then doing additional printing through Lightning Source. E-book will be released for all readers. Aiming for all of this to happen between August 24th and August 31st.
First steps after research are revising and editing the novel with a final date for Advanced Reader Copies for July 31st. While that happens I’m working on the marketing.
My daughter Sheridan helped me design bookmarks that should appeal to my target readership. I’ll be putting up a Design contest on 99designs.com.
Last night I finished the climax (third time charm) for the novel. Now I need to fill in a couple final rising action scenes and the last few pages of the denouement. Then on to the rewrite.
In the last few weeks I’ve also written most of a short story set 100 years in the future of “The Deserted Lands” series. It was my idea for the Bellingham Herald Science Fiction serial, coming to a Sunday paper near you in July. I’m hoping to offer it as a free download for the few weeks before and after my novel release.
