Today, I signed a copy of IN THE SEVENTH DAY and gave it to a reader. In return, my reader gave me a check for $14.50.
Well I can’t tell you how long it’s been since I sold a copy of IN THE SEVENTH DAY! A long time has passed, but today was a good day for me both as writer and as salesperson. ( I hate selling! )
I sold a book, will deliver it next week.
My rough draft of GANI & SEAN is done. I just finished it. Now for the hard work — the editing. Reading and re-reading. To make this process easier, I usually order a proof copy of the book, use pencil to mark the whole manuscript.
My tendency is to write shorter novels rather than longer, but GANI & SEAN has grown quite complicated and I have many — what are they called — loose ends to tie up and threads to weave together. Oh fun…
Ah, the wiggly way has stopped meandering. GANI & SEAN takes a straighter path and quite unexpectedly at 52,952 words.
Ever take a path in the woods that turns out to wiggle its way around until you feel like you aren’t going anywhere but lo and behold you get somewhere anyway? Yes? Oh good.
