...and counting, at least as regards National Novel Writing Month.
When I finish this project, I will have five--yes, FIVE--manuscripts completed in my Tales of Telmaja series. Yet the second book, A Smijj of Adventure, is still awaiting my final read-through.
Why is writing so much fun, and editing so much NOT fun? No wonder writers never self-published in great quantities before the Internet made it seem easier than the ordinary publishing route.
(It still is easier. But sometimes I dream of selling enough copies of my book(s) to justify hiring someone else to do the editing. Isn't that the dream?)
But this post wouldn't be complete without a shout-out to all of the members of my Advance Reader Team (ART) who kindly read my works while they're still in manuscript form, and find lots of typos and double-words and silly errors that I have missed even on the dozenth reading of the book. I wouldn't be able to do this without them, and they are wonderful in every way. :)
