Floodtide is on its Way

Friday, March 29, 2019 - 07:11

I just hit "send". The manuscript for Floodtide has now officially been delivered to the publisher. And three whole days before the contracted deadline, too!

Yes, I'm kind of proud of that because, while I use deadlines to schedule and organize my project planning, I really dislike coming down to the wire. Things happen. Computers break. Networks go down. People get sick and don't have the energy to leave their beds much less do serious last-minute editing. (Wait, that was two weeks ago. Already ticked off that box.)

I haven't started a new writing project quite yet, although yesterday I had a fascinating idea for a contemporary fantasy/horror short story that's very different from my usual sort. I'd contemplate trying it for a palate cleanser except that what I really need to work on next is my paper for this years Kalamazoo Medieval Congress.

At this point, it will probably be a while before you hear any further substantial news. With this much lag time before the November publication date, I imagine other things will be ahead of it in the editing queue. If I'm lucky, edits will arrive sometime in June or July so I can get the next step taken care of before my international travel in August. But it is as the gods will.
