This is going to be a quick one, since I didn’t post an update this past weekend, but am trying to maintain my consistency.
I didn’t get as much done over the weekend as I wanted, but when do I ever get as much done as I want? That said, it was a decent effort. I have now completed four of the eight major edits that I have left. I feel good about my progress. My goal at this point is to finish the remaining edits by 2/21. That is one month before my “on-sale” date and I think will just barely, not quite, give me enough time to do the last read through. So by the end of this week, I hope to have completed major edits #5 & #6.
The other piece that I am working on this week is my synopsis. I did a quick draft of it over the weekend, but I am not quite satisfied with it. It is tougher than you think to boil a whole novel down to ~150 attractive words. That said, I am aiming for the same 2/21 goal for the synopsis. If I can get that done a month before Mercury & Murder goes on sale, I can use it to help me market the book more effectively.
