Sometimes, I’m certain I’m a masochist.
On Friday, 11/2/18 I posted an update (you can read it here) where I stated with considerable pride -and joy!- that I finished reading the latest draft, #11, of my latest Corrosive Knights novel, #7, which is the concluding chapter of the series…
It took me two days. I started doing the transfer of notations on Friday and finished on Saturday.
It was not easy.
In fact, considering how exhausted I usually am by the time Friday rolls around, you would think I’d welcome some relaxation come the weekend.
Not so this weekend.
Friday was filled with hard work. I managed to get through 1/2 of the novel, putting the revisions in the computer. As the day ended, I thought: Since I finished half the book in one day, could I finish the other half on Saturday?
I could, but wow did I burn the proverbial candle at both ends. Not only did I completely finish the revision, I also went out to three different places to buy some stuff we needed, do some minor grocery shopping, do about an hour of exercise, etc. I wound up eating only once, at about 3:30 pm, and was done with the revisions around 8 P. M.
It was tough sledding but the bottom line is that the damn draft is finished and its off to what I’m quite certain will be the final draft, #12.
As of the coming week, I may -we’ll see as it’s not entirely certain- be at the Miami Gamer Comic Expo between November 9-12.
Again, this isn’t certain. If I’m there, it’s as a “and one” guest of a good friend of mine and, therefore, I will not be listed among the “formal” guests at the con.
But, again: THIS IS NOT CERTAIN and I may well not be there at all! Regardless, I’ll provide updates as soon as I can.
Meanwhile, I made this neat-o little promo of some of the books in the Corrosive Knights series and figured I’d present…
Regardless of whether I’m at the convention or not, I will begin working on Draft #12 of the book and should have it done by later this week (if I’m not going to the con) or perhaps by later next week (if I will be at the con).
And from there, its time to work on formally releasing it.
The time is coming.
Very, very soon!
