As of this Sunday, Ivy Introspective is now with her editor. It took me waaaay too long to actually finish my own edits, but I’ve finally done it – and it’s out of my hands.
Until the beginning of June, I don’t have to think about it.
Which begs the question … now what?
I obviously can’t take a break (*gasps at the thought*), so I have to choose another project. Thankfully, my publishing schedule chose one for me. (Thanks, publishing schedule. You’re all that keeps me going some days. Literally.)
At Her Fingertips (book 3) and Beyond Her Calling (book 4) are my next slotted releases, so I’ll dive right into working on the (revision) outlines. As of yet, I’ve gotten about a quarter way through my outline for At Her Fingertips!
After I finish the outlines, I’m going to gauge what to do next based on my energy levels. If I feel up to diving into a revision (with some rewrite elements, though hopefully not as many as with the other books!), I’ll pick one and get started.
If not, I’ll start writing my next next book on the roster – The Midwife’s Daughter (McAllen Brothers, Book 1). I’ve already gotten this book outlined and started, but I really need to dive into the writing.
I’m also debating whether or not to work on this, as well … but as some point, I plan on writing a little “The Chronicles of Alice and Ivy, Book 2.5” novelette/short story.
I have some ideas, though they’re not quite thought through yet. (Outlining will definitely be the next step, though due to the length, it’s more like … storyboarding? I don’t know.)
My goal with it? Give it away as a freebie to fans who wonder about the big gap between books 2 and 3, and also use it to fill in some details about the changes in Alice and Ivy in the medium. It’s as fun for you as it is for me!
Anyways, those are my next projects. I just wanted to post this little life update to let you know what I’m up to! And also to ask … what are you up to!? We need to check in with each other more often, y’all.
Until next time,
Well … what HAVE you been up to?
