Effective immediately, all of my RoW80 goals are being put on hold, so that I may focus on one single, solitary, gigantic one: the August 15th release of The Slayer Saga: Soulless. It’s kind of hard to believe, but I’m less than two short weeks from making this project live for the public to enjoy and consume. I’m still sort of dazed that it’s going to be happening soon; I’m sure I’ll be dazed well after August 15th, too. But there’s still a lot of work to be done.
That said, the next few check-ins might be a little quiet for me, as I’m temporarily brushing aside everything else so I can focus on what needs to be done with Soulless before it hits the scene, because I’m still editing for crying out loud (hi, there, perfectionist writer with not nearly enough time or planning skills). I’m hunting people down and seeing what I need to do to help get the word out there. I’m checking in on every “before you publish” checklist I can find and figuring out what I totally screwed up on and what can still be done. I’ve got Soulless on the brain, and everything else is just going to have to wait.
(Knowing me, though, I bet you anything that this is the time where I somehow manage to churn out some amazing short story out of fricking nowhere. Then again, that’s totally wishful thinking to the max right there.)
Again, if anyone’s interested in doing a feature, let me know, and I’ll get in touch with you about a plan. Also, if you’re interested in doing a review, I can see about getting you a free copy. I’ve just ordered the proof with expediated delivery, just in case, so I’m thrilled to see how Ingrid’s beautiful cover look in the flesh, and, more importantly, but a lot less fun, how the interior is settling so I know how my margins and font size should be. Tuesday seems forever from now. SIGH.
Well, while I’m in the Full Speed Ahead mode on this particular goal, perhaps you can hop on over to some of my fellow RoWers and see how they’re doing? You can check them out here!
