I’m almost wondering if I should forgo RoW80 updates until Soulless is out, since there’s not a whole lot to update with considering I’m just plugging along with the last touches on the book (which actually includes a whole new chapter…ten days before publishing. Nice). Not a whole lot of excitement in Update-worthy material, but I’ve pretty much got the print version ready and now I’m going through that excellent chore that is formatting for the ePub. It’s a damn good thing I like coding…
Brushing it up this last time has made me feel a little more confident in the text itself. It’s not spectacular, no, but it’s at least entertaining, especially if you like those pulpy sci-fi/fantasy type books like I do. I think the real problem is going to be people assuming it’s something it’s not, and then either being upset about that or just not getting what I’m trying to do. If you’re not familiar with the genre, it probably seems pretty stupid. But we’ll see. Time will tell. I like it and it’s going to look gorgeous on a bookshelf, and that’s ultimately what matters most. That, and it’ll get more than Bowlful of Bunnies out into the world.
At the pace I’m going, balanced with some of the moving prep I’m doing, the garage sale I’m going to have, and working, I should have this ready for electronic format by Sunday. Knock on wood. That gives me a good solid five days to do any final quirking and touching before next Friday rolls around and it’s time to make this available to everyone. Exciting stuff in general, just not very exciting for RoW updates. You’ll likely find more excitement over here with my fellow RoWers, so check them out.
