I am pleased as punch to be able to say that a first draft of Awakening 2 is finished and with beta readers. Woot! I made my deadline of 8pm on Wednesday and have since been busily working on all the other things I neglected while I was jamming to get the book written. Such as commissioning the cover art! And organizing a blog tour! And sleeping! Oh yeah, and working, too. ;)
Remaining steps: 2nd draft in response to feedback from readers. Will be done with that by June 20th. Then putting it all together to send out ARCs June 20-30 to everyone who's left a review of Awakening on Goodreads and for the blog tour reviewers. Formatting for Amazon upload on June 29/30, and publishing on July 1st.
What am I gonna do with myself once this book is out there?
Oh yeah. Promote it while writing the next one.
