My goodness, we’re in May already? Our weather just drastically went from freezing rain to near-miserable humidity, so it must be true.
For last month’s Camp NaNoWriMo, I free-wrote a short novel, and I had so much fun. Definitely the most fulfilling Camp yet.
Through April, my creativity was booming. I was able to return to The Girl Who Frosts the Cakes with fresh eyes, and as my self-editing is nearing an end (yes, I really just said that), it’s time for another update!
If you’ve never heard of my historical fiction novel, you can read its info here.
At present, I am in draft five of my self-editing. This is the easiest yet: I call it the “final polishing.” I’m doing my last read-through, making little edits as I go, before handing it off to someone who can help me edit it further. This draft will be done by June (2018, of course).
This is such an exciting thing for me. I can’t even put it into words. We’ve already begun contacting people who will help us find an editor!
I can’t honestly say I’m not nervous. To date, no one else has read my manuscript in its entirety but myself; in a way, it feels like I’m losing something. But there is a significant gain in store! I’m both terrified and unbelievably thrilled.
When will it be published?
I get this question all too often, and here’s a solid answer: I don’t know.
I haven’t decided how I want to publish yet, which is among the most important factors of a book. I don’t know if it’ll be out this year, or the next, or the next. There are a lot of question marks surrounding that.
I don’t post updates on my blog terribly often, but I do talk about my book on my social medias all the time. If you want to stay in the loop, I recommend you follow me for more frequent updates!
Thank you for supporting me by reading these posts, and following my social profiles! I will see you guys in my next post.
