During the daytime, I’ve been working on a landscaping project in my yard, in much the same way my editor, Ben, works at Little, Brown during the day. At night we’ve each been making progress on about 2 chapters / night. I just went through chapter 12, which I’ll send to him for criticism while I push into chapters 13 and 14. The objective is to bring all chapters up to level 3 with this pass. After this, I’ll push toward level 5, then do a full up copy edit and then layout, then proof edit, then . . . well, that’s when the book comes out.
I’m targeting December.
