Steve’s Update 8/12/2018

How goes everyone!  Here’s my latest update!

So what have I done the last week?

  • A Bridge To The Quiet Planet: Back from the editor and I’m editing,  and I’m done with chapter 1 already! However, there’s going to be a one month delay in publishing.  The editor had a lot of good feedback, some of which is leading to style changes and altering some POV elements.  This makes the story much better and presents a more intimate view of the wild setting.  But it’s going to take an extra month.
  • Way With Worlds: I’ve started on the next book on Organizations, which might just be a two part series (though I may spread it out).  This one is near and dear to might heart as Organizations are often forgotten in worldbuilding beyond tropes.
  • Other: An unexpectedly busy week as I had a doctor’s appointment, some home stuff to deal with, and a lot of work stuff.

What am I going to do this week?

  • A Bridge To The Quiet Planet: Editing.  I may delay the cover art a bit since I’ve got an extra month.
  • Way With Worlds: Writing away of course – I’m basically doing a bit each day or so, so this one won’t be done for another two months or so.
  • Other: I’ve got a lot of cons stuff coming up so I’ll be preparing for that.  Where does the time go . . .
