Once again I’ve been caught up in the writing and forgetting to post. I think that’s a good thing.
As I’ve mentioned, I’m taking Dean Wesley Smith’s three novels in three months challenge. Heading into the last three weeks now, with the third novel well underway.
I completed the second novel – Glass Bay – and got it turned in on time. It turned out to be the second of my Emily Jade thriller series. It’s been a couple of years since Big Sur came out and I was starting to wonder if I would find the next book in it (my thriller Taken by Surprise, from last year) has an appearance from Emily, but it’s more like a side book, with a different lead character (I just noticed that on the cover of the two Emily Jade books I’ve got “Author of Taken by Surprise).
Once I have Mr Smith’s first reader notes back I’ll get it underway with fixes and tinkering and underway to a copyeditor. Hope to have it out before the end of the year.
And a funny thing has happened. Not only have a learned a whole lot about writing, but I’m having fun writing a novel a month. Wondering if I might try to keep it up as a challenge for the rest of the year. That would be fun too.

Hey, congratulations Sean! Seems like a GREAT time for writers!
To whom are you submitting, if you don’t mind my asking? And also, can you give any information on your copyeditor? Where you found one, etc.?
I’m always interested in learning the writer’s journey! Congratulations again!
All the best!
Hi Dane – thanks. All my novels will go direct to indie published. I have another writer friend and we do swap copyediting for each other. If you’re looking for someone, you could try Grace Bridges – http://www.gracebridges.kiwi/hire-me – she has good rates. There’s also a list of possible copyeditors here – http://www.helpingwritersbecomeauthors.com/good-book-editor/#
Great, thanks Sean! And congrats again!
Totally agree with your opening statement! It’s some time since I’ve made the time to come here, too caught up in writing.
Thanks Val. Writing time trumps it all.
