Burn for Me
Thank you to all the awesome betas who sent in their copyedit suggestions. We still have a couple of days, so if you haven’t quite gotten yours in, we’ll totally take it.
I am about to send the ARCs of Magic Breaks to the beta readers. Sorry, guys, I dropped the ball. We had prom and sickness and we are taking Kid 1 to the doctor this morning. Gordon valiantly finished the taxes. I’m going to try to nuke the copyedit.
I’ve seen some preliminary feedback on MB and looks like the book might generate some controversy. Roland didn’t quite turn out to be clear cut and the book doesn’t follow the standard Kate formula. Some people really love it and others are like, “What the heck?” It will be interesting to watch this one.
I’m terribly excited about the next one, because of the new thing Kate and Curran will be doing. But can’t say anymore or I’ll get in trouble. That’s my only regret – I wish they would’ve let us put the snippet of the next one in, but Ace has some firm guidelines when it comes to hardback.
Sweep in Peace
We are going to be changing format of Sweep in Peace. We are looking for dedicated proofreaders who will be given power to fix typos. We love you, but you as a whole can’t be trusted with typo corrections. 🙁 You guys fight over them and one dude decided to correct typos of readers in the comments. So we’re are looking for a few good grammarians, who wouldn’t mind volunteering their time. We will probably officially “hire” at least one for a nominal fee. The target for the next post is this Friday. I’ve got half of it done.
Blog and Newsletter
As you probably noticed, this space has gone to pro-updates only. I’ve moved our personal rantings to a separate place. Twitter account will also follow the same pattern. Sorry, guys, but blogging is my therapy and I want to be able to do it in peace. If you’re a friend or family, you will get an invite so you can keep up with kid prom pictures and random musings. If I missed you, drop me a line.
As the result of this change, the website will undergo a mild redesign in the next few days. We are looking at a better laid out home page and eliminating some of the menu options. Pardon our mess while we work. We will be rolling out a newsletter sign up, which will only include pro updates. I’ll post when this will be happening.
Well, that is all. 🙂
