I’m writing a book. I’ve got the page numbers done. – Steven Wright
Here we are – launching out into the Great Unknown. It is almost time to publish. Finally book one is done and going out to our friendly neighborhood beta readers; book two is in editing and books three and four are written enough to know how they’ll go and that they can be finished in a reasonable amount of time.
So now for the launch. Rick and I have talks while weeding in the front yard over minor problems in the plot. We talk cover design over breakfast. We spend the evenings quietly beside one another: him finishing reading through my next to last edit of book one (I will do the final grammar and spell check) and I edit and rework scenes in book two or research which authors are most similar to him and try to hunt down where their fans are living on Goodreads.
