Good weekend! I worked a lot and I’m nearly finished revising Obsession. I’ll be sending it back to my editor by Wednesday.
However I won’t have the book published by my projected September 24th date. I can’t get it proofread (after two rounds of editing) and formatted by that date. So I’m thinking that OBSESSION will be “live” on Amazon, B&N and Kobo between October 7th and 10th. Apple/iTunes takes longer for some mysterious reason.
I’m excited to see what people think of the last book int his series. I feel like I’ve been living with these two for a very long time. I don’t want to let them go, but I really believe it’s time.
One “behind the scenes tidbit”. OBSESSION (without title page and all that extra stuff) comes out to 255 manuscript pages. My cut file, which is exactly what it sounds like–I cut scenes and put them there in the cut file–is 157 pages. Plus on my last pass I cut another four-page scene I didn’t put in the cut file. That’s how many pages of scenes I write then cut. Sometimes I use some of those pages elsewhere, other times they pages just didn’t work for the story. That’s just little behind the scenes insight into the how I work
So tell me how your weekend was! I always want to know!
