It’s been a while, but I’ve finally got a draft in hand of the sequel to Cornerstone: Raising Rook (tentatively called Cornerstone: The Delving). After starting off fast, I stalled out, despite having written part of the last chapter and knowing where I needed to go, which is my usual technique. Then I wrote the last few chapters all in a rush when I finally got going again.
While it’s definitely satisfying to have an 80,000 word manuscript, there’s a lot more to do: general editing, consistency, timeline checks, removing parts that don’t fit or are unnecessary, adding new parts, proofreading, re-reading, re-re-reading, re-re-re-reading – yeah. Not to mention formal editing, formatting for ebook and paperback, and commissioning cover art. But it feels like an Accomplishment, and at least somewhat like a relief.
If you’re in Colorado, please consider patronizing the brick-and-mortar bookstore Old Firehouse Books, which is carrying several of my paperbacks (Cornerstone, AFTERThought, The Snow Deer, and the first book of the Stolen series). It’s a cute, old-fashioned book and card store in a historic building, and they support local and Indie authors! Click the logo below to visit their site!
