Progress Report: 24/10/2016 – 30/10/2016

Welcome to week forty-four.

Norse Novels

I finished the read through of Book Three and found a cover image I’m happy with, I think. I haven’t bought it yet – I don’t need to prepare the cover yet. I’m going to let it settle for a week or two and make sure I’m still happy with it.

Other Projects

NaNoWriMo starts on Tuesday, so I’ve done some prep for that this week, and it will be my focus for the next four. I think I said last week that I’m drafting out two novels, so it’ll be busy.

Welcome to week forty-three.

Norse Novels

Finished the second read through and did the main formatting for the paperback for Book Three. This coming week, another read through, get the cover done and, if there’s time, get the paperback proofed on the website and ordered, and the ebook docs sorted.

Other Projects

Started the formatting of the second short story book this week. It’s nearly done, but the cover needs doing and proof ordering. This will be first priority this week.

Welcome to week forty-two.

Norse Novels

This week I completed the read through of Book Three and started the first read out loud. I’m nearly finished that. Another day should do it. I say first read out loud, because on going through this time, I decided it definitely needs another one before I think about paperback formatting. So, I’ll probably give it a day’s rest on Tuesday and start again on Wednesday. Hopefully, that will be finished by the end of the week, as the second read out loud shouldn’t need as many changes.

Welcome to week forty-one.

Norse Novels

This week went better than expected with the editing of Book Three. I completed the paper edit and transcribed it, and now I’m about a third of the way through a Kindle read through. I hope to finish that this week and start (possibly finish) a read out loud. If I complete that, which I probably won’t, I’ll start formatting to paperback.

Welcome to week forty.

Norse Novels

So, release day has come and gone for book one. It went well, but as with all these things, it’s a wait and see to see if anyone likes it. I’ve been editing book three all week and I’m about halfway through. I expect to finish it by the end of the coming week, although I won’t be able to do any work on Friday, due to another commitment.

Other Projects

I’m considering starting to put together the second book of short stories from Instagram, as I now have enough to fill a second volume, but that will definitely be a side project.
