The second pass of edit notes is done for Duke Noble P.I.: Rumor Has It. This round, I ended up with 12 pages of notes. And I've already entered 8 of those. I'll enter those last 5 suckers and make one more pass for typos. Then I can send it off to readers definitely by the end of the week. The waiting is nearly over. Yay.
I really need to get to work on a cover now. Gah. I actually have an idea in my head of how I want it to look. The question now is whether I can pull it off.
And I need to do a blurb. I have no ideas there.
But I have an idea for the second book in this series. Derp.
This book... which will hopefully be part of a series... is a throwback to the old noir crime novels. It's set in a time before computers and to-go coffee. When people still smoked without worrying about being harassed for it. When men could still ogle a woman and she took it as a compliment.
I hope I got it right.
Anyway, I enjoyed writing it. I hope people enjoy reading it.
Last night, as a reward for finishing the edit pass, I started reading Uptown Blues: Herbert and Melancon #5 by Seth Pevey. I'm kind of addicted to this series and Seth knows it, so he messages me when he's got a new book out. Unfortunately, I was in the middle of the edit pass, so I couldn't start reading it immediately like I usually do. But I sure as hell got my buns in gear to make that edit pass go quickly. ;o)
So far, so awesome. That boy can write.
And that's where I'm at. How are things with you?
