Beware the hellhounds who lurk in the shadows for they are so hungry, and you are so tasty.

Crown of Ice gone!

Sent off Crown of Ice to my editor on Friday, as I said I would. Today I’m beginning to input edits for Royal Blood, which is the second in the series. Technically in this particular series, they are one book separated into two. I ended up thinking I’d keep it as one book, but I’d reached halfway through the second book when it occurred to me that I needed to split it into two.

So in Crown of Ice there is a continuation marker into number 2. In some series I do have the books abruptly end and the next picks up where the last left off, but this one is really an abrupt ending. Some readers I get may not like it, but that’s partly why I will be working OT on this one to make sure that number two gets published as quickly as it can. I’m trying a new process with my editing that I hope makes it go a little quicker. Not to sacrifice the quality of the edit, but maybe even to make it better.

That’s always my plan. Improve the editing while finding a way to speed it up. I don’t like using that word. To someone else it may mean make the process speed up and sacrifice the quality. I only mean to help the process take less time to achieve. Even if it means some days that I work when normally I would take the time off. Like Sundays. Or working an extra hour on some days. It’s far too easy to abuse that word: speed. It implies a lack of caring and trying to hurry up, rushing, just for the sake of rushing. I never intend it that way.

So today, we’ve begun work on inputting edits for this beauty –
