My Demon Warlord – Status

I have a status! Something to tell you!  I just sent the MS for My Demon Warlord to the copy editor.

It turned out that I did not one but two significant rewrites even after my revisions were done. I wasn’t happy with certain parts of the story. My second paper read-through was a sea of pretty ink colors. Lets, see, I used sparkly green,  copper, sunrise orange, pink, purple, sparkly blue, and sparkly gray. I’d run one pen dry, and either swap out the cartridge immediately and keep going or switch pens until I ran that one dry….  Then I put in those edits and did a third paper read through and…. again massively revised (see list of ink colors above) and then I got in those edits and started reading again, and then I gave up on paper and went back to the digital version and things were finally holding together the way I wanted them to. And then I was mostly catching little stuff like typos and punctuation instead of completely rewriting and now it’s on it’s way to the copy-editor.

After that, it goes to proofreading, then to the formatter.

For everyone who’s been asking about Book 3 in the Sinclair Sister’s series (that would be Emily and Devon!) I can start the plotting/brainstorming pretty much now. I’ve already worked out the basic framework so I may start drafting sooner rather than later.

For everyone who’s been asking about stories in the “The King’s Dragon” world, I’ll be writing the first one after Emily and Devon. That’s a story idea I’ve jokingly called The Dark Elf Series. It’s got elves. It’s dark. There’s a short story set in that world over at Heroes and Heartbreakers. You can read the whole thing there for free. You have to register, but that’s free. MacMillan sells the story for $0.99 at most vendors. (The King’s Dragon, by Carolyn Jewel)

The off-site office makes a big difference in my ability to string together some hours without being interrupted.
