I haven't been able to sleep much this week. I had to sit down and take a few deep breaths before I started writing this update, so that I wouldn't end every sentence in an exclamation point. I've been exhilarated, astounded by your generosity. In less than two and a half days, we've surpassed the funding goal. There will be a book. You will have it in your hands.
Here's my plan around project updates: I'll be posting short weekly updates about my progress every Sunday night, starting July 22nd. I'll be spending a vast majority of my available time on the book itself, but I'll be doing a weekly review anyway to make sure I stay on track. And if I can share these with you, and also share some of what I've learned (and am learning) about the process of writing and publishing a novel, then all the better. The updates, like this one, should take no more than a minute or two to read. My goal is to keep them informative but digestible.
As for this week, I've already started conversations with a handful of editors, and I'd love to chat with a few more. If you know of any freelance fiction editors looking for work, please get in touch.
Thank you. Thank you!
