The manuscript for I AM was sent to beta readers in early March and then on to the main editor (John Hudspith) in England on April 1. I anticipate that the editor will be finished by the end of April and that the book will move onto the interior designer for layout (Jamie Kerry) in early May. Scott Bryan Wilson has agreed to do the proof reading (another editorial step) in May, and while this is under way, Jamie will be designing the cover of the book, using the image licensed from Wendy Gedack. I’ll be making small revisions (as necessary) along the way.
Writing I AM has been a pleasant experience that started in late 2012 or very early 2013. I set the story aside to finish and publish both The Boy Who Ran and The Balance. If everything goes well, the book in both paperback and Kindle formats will be out by mid-June, published by Woodland Park Press LLC.
In the meantime, I’ve begun a more detailed plot for The Balance (Part 2), and plan to write this in parallel with DISOBEDIENCE over the next year.
