I was talking to my friend Jon today and we were discussing how little things at the start of a series can pay off in later books. I mentioned how I’m trying to do something similar with Mind & Machine and Jon asked, “So when are you getting this thing published?”
I’ve gotten a draft at least finished on three books now. It’s time I got something done I think. I know what I want to type, I have plans on how I’ll edit, I even have strategy on what agents I’d like to contact and thoughts on how I can promote my works. I just have to clean them up and get them out there.
In the next few days, a pair of friends should be getting some, if not all, of Mind & Machine to look over. Instead of editing before sending reading material, I’m going to do all the editing after. From hearing several professionals at Dragon*Con, I know they don’t usually take 4 drafts just to get one book up to par.
Ok, another moment to chill, then it’s back to work.
