As of today, I have two months left until my deadline for DEMON NIGHT. I’ve heard that the second book is that hardest, but I think in my case it’s going to be this one. Which is okay, and not wholly unexpected, because I’ve been struggling with it since the beginning. I’m freaking out a little, yes, and have been rough drafting through a lot of it — the good thing is, I love the story and these characters, and I’ve been reaching my daily word count, and when I have been going back and editing, filling in those rough spots, its been going well and coming out smooth.
I’m just glad that if I’m going to struggle, it’s over something I’m loving.
I’ve got one month until WILD THING anthology comes out … although there’s not really much to prepare for that, I guess. Everything’s finished, the galleys went out a long time ago, the first reviews are coming in (there’s one at RT, 4 stars, go us!) I’ll be having contests to give away my author copies, but that’s easily done from here.
And two months until DEMON MOON comes out, which freaks me out just a little bit more. There’s nothing left to do as far as writing the book — that’s done, the final edits are done, I’ve got ARCs sitting next to me, all that’s left is the printing. Oh, and the marketing, which is pretty much going to fill up all of those little sections of time that I’m struggling and stopping to regroup as I’m writing.
