Earth Reader first draft is done!

Well, Earth Reader is done.

Now the editing begins.

Took me 16 months to finish. It is 224 pages and 55,359 words as is, right now.  When I finish 1st edit who knows what it will be. Of course, I edited as I went along too. Can't help that. But now I have to go through the whole book and look for consistancy as well.

All I got to do now is get it published. I want to go the self-pub way, but with the way emergencies keep coming up to take my money...I'm tapped out again. I swear as soon as I get enough to rub together something happens.  Anyway, I plan to publish one way or another before the year is out.

I've started on the next book Fire. Fire Walker to be exact. I had already started the first page of it during JANO and won 2nd place for best first sentence with it. It needed tightening up and I added a few lines. So I'll be working on it and editing Earth. Can't sit still; ADD to the attack. :)

The third book will be either air or water. If it's air, I plan to call it Wind Talker. But I don't have a name for Water. Do you have any ideas?  If you do, please comment.

That's the status for now. One book done, editing to go. And another book started with 2 more to go after that. Maybe more. I got an Idea for a fifth book perculating.

  1. That's awesome, Tina. You could always do the self-pub thing yourself. The cover is the most difficult. Good luck.
