I’ve got the details worked out, and it seems that it is going to possible to meet my goal of publishing the next book in The Bracken Covenant Series by the end of next month! It’s going to require a lot of work on my end, probably 4-6 hours of writing, editing, proofreading, formatting, etc. every day, but I really want this birthday to stand for something, since I’m getting older, and time is slipping away.
Here’s what my schedule looks like up until launch day:
April 15-28: Finish first draft
April 29-May 5: Edit and expand
May 6-12: Proofread
May 13-19: Format, create cover art, write summary and descriptions, get ready for epublishing
May 20: Publish!
May 24: Start a Kickstarter to print a paperback version of book.
May 25: Hold a book bomb on my birthday
There’s the schedule. I’m getting the “writing books in four months” thing down pretty consistently, which is pretty cool. Never before last year would I have thought I could write a book under a year’s time, let alone four months!
If you want to help, when the book bomb happens, you can help by buying a copy of the book, but until then the best thing you can do is subscribe here and on my Facebook page. I’ll keep everyone in the loop with the book’s progression here and there. Let others know about this too. There’s not too many writers that get out two books in a series under six months, so I think it’s pretty unique. Let’s spread the word!
If there’s one thing I’ve learned in life, it’s not to be a doubting Boromir. It can be done! Even though the path may seem difficult—perhaps even impossible.
