That Tricky Release Date

Release dates are hard to pin down.

As I’ve finished the first two books (out of five) in my first series, the question I always get is, “So when are you publishing those books?”

And the answer is – I have a rough idea (this fall) but beyond that, I don’t know.

Believe me, it’s as frustrating to say that as it is to hear it. Besides juggling a full-time job and other responsibilities, I’ve discovered that it’s very hard to write one book while editing another. So hard, in fact, that I’ve given that up completely. I’m only <1000 words into Book #3, but as much as it kills me to do, I’ve set it aside so I can finish editing Book #2.

Writing is fun. Editing is not. And of course I’d rather do the fun stuff instead of the not-so-enjoyable stuff, but I assume you all want a coherent book to read, so back to editing I go!
