THE RISING HORDE: An Editorial Saga
Just a little nugget to pass on to the three of you who are waiting for The Rising Horde. The editor is still going over it, and it’s going to take at least another week for her to generate the first pass edits and send them my way. Then I have to review, make or ignore the required changes and/or rewrites, then send them back. She’ll do a final review, we’ll agree on a “final” version for the proofreader, and then off it goes through the final proofing process.
That could take another three weeks, though I’m hopeful it won’t take that long.
So, end game: the book (or books) probably aren’t going to be out until the end of April now, though the savvy gambler will bet long on May.
More to come, and sorry the news isn’t more to everyone’s liking. But hey…I shouldn’t have written a 186,000+ word zombie apocalypse epic in the first place!
