Phew! I’m back (sort of). I just spent the last 6 months editing and re-editing the Book of Earth; hopefully the time spent was well worth it. I have now passed it off to my first of test readers—my wife—and I’m anxiously awaiting the results and her thoughts on the plot. If all goes well, I will make additional edits, pass it off to another reader, and then finally hand it over to an editor. How long it will sit with an editor, I have no idea; I’ve never used an editor before.
I’m hoping to release Book of Earth in September of this year!
