An important public service announcement


My apologies for not offering much in the way of anything new, but I've been completely wrapped up in revisions. I do however have two fun posts planned: one being the latest installation of the Cephalopod Coffeehouse on July 25 in which we talk about a book we've read, and two being an interview with MJ Fifeld from My Pet Blog on July 28.

First Impressions will be back per usual at the beginning of August and Dianne and I have one opening left. If you want your first page critiqued by two published authors, check out the sidebar for the FAQs.

Meanwhile, I will continue to visit as best I can while I address the remaining issues in my latest endeavor* (I'm down from 57 to 7 fixes, woohoo!!!). Then I can get down to the nit-picky stuff like over-used words and passive sentences and missing/wrong punctuation. After that, it might just be ready for readers...

How are you doing? What are you working on?


* PEACE & FORGIVENESS

  4. Haha! I'm down to two issues left to fix in my revision. Meant to have it out last week to readers, but crap keeps surfacing that needs fixing.

    Congrats on your progress.

  5. Good luck with revisions. All I'm working on at the moment is trying to find a new place to live. Ugh.

    1. Ugh is right - I hate trying to find a new place and I hate moving even more!

    1. Good luck with giving new life to old projects - it's always rewarding when we can resurrect an old wip.

  7. Yep, reading can do serious damage to ignorance, but then again, it depends on the reading material.

    Good luck with your revisions!

  12. Way to go! Down to 7 out of 57? That's amazingsauce. Man, that moment when you get back notes from an editor or CP and wonder if this book is ever going to survive your thrashing... That's a hard moment, but I applaud those of us who can number the issues and go forward.

    I'm revising at the moment. Fun stuff. Want some cheese?
