Well, I’ve reached the end of Ready or Not‘s chapter 20. I feel like the next one or the one after should be the wind down to the end and then I can get started on the third book.
So far I’m not sure what to call that one. I’m likely to be several chapters in before I’ve got a clear vision of a name. At least the fourth book has a name: Now & Forever. I think I was planning to call it that all along, I’m not sure, but I am now.
I’m still waiting to hear back from Ms Lakosil to decide how I’m going to proceed.
Which does, by the way bring me to a perfectly related detail. Love or Lust should be done editing in two weeks, maybe three. I mean done done. It’d be sooner, but I want to give it one more personal read through. The lovely part of this is that the agency’s expected response is supposed to be 2-4 weeks which would put today the earliest I’m likely to hear back and the latest just about the time I finish my read through — just in time to decide what I’m going to do!
One thing I have decided to do, but haven’t got around to is tweaking the cover for Love or Lust to a less dark colour. It doesn’t go as well with the second book. Admittedly it won’t matter if I end up going with an agent and a traditional publisher, but I’m going to operate on the idea that I won’t be using an agent. If I do self-publish the cover will be tweaked down to a shade of blue similar to the maroon that Ready or Not‘s cover has.
