Good news? I finished writing a very tattered, crappy first draft of the book on Friday.
Bad news? I have exactly seven days to clean up that crappy first draft and make it shine so my editor’s eyes don’t bleed when she reads it.
Also, if I want to give my long-suffering first readers a chance at it before I ship it off, I need to finish cleaning up the book in, like…three days.
Riiiight. So, that’s going on. What else is up in Monkworld?
The last Allie Beckstrom book will be out in less than a month! MAGIC FOR A PRICE hits the shelves on November 6th. If you’d like to know why this is the last book in the series, check out my blog post here. I’ve put up an excerpt from the beginning of the book here, and will be posting weekly snippets from the book from now until release date. The first of those is here.
There. That pretty much covers the bookish stuff I’m doing at the moment. So tell me how October is going for you! Reading any good books? Trying any new crafty things? Seen a movie or TV show you like? I’m currently happy as a clam that HAVEN is back on, and can’t wait for COMMUNITY to start up in a couple weeks.
