Ever do something, then look back over it later and go “what in God’s name was I thinking?!“
Yeah, I had one of those moments.
Maybe you recall the end of this summer where I did my Now & Forever A-B-Cs series? If not, I think I might be grateful …
By and large it’s fine. Not always exceptionally well written, but it was just a bit of fun, so who cares? Still, it was meant to be accurate, and that … not always so much. More than not, if I want to be honest with myself, but still enough to bother me and my perfectionist nature (just as I cringe every time I re-read Love or Lust and discover a new typo or mistake I missed, not to worry, as soon as my editor and I have a chance those will be fixed, and by the magic of ebooks you will all have a corrected copy). I get a few people’s birthdays terribly wrong, mostly.
I know it isn’t important. I know it shouldn’t matter. Certainly I understand this well enough I’m not bothering to delete those posts. I should, eventually, go back and edit them … but I’ve more pressing things to do, like the continuing work on Ready or Not. Suffice to say, blogposts probably are not a good source of solid cannon — I may be making them at 2AM and off the cuff; blog pages and the books should be safe, those I’m wont to take more time with.
Speaking of Ready or Not, my editor thinks we may be able to have it ready to ship as early as Easter! Worst case, she says, it ought to be around the first anniversary of Love or Lust‘s release. We wait and see. I’m still terribly nervous, especially of the bits I wrote during NaNoWriMo and CampWriMo. I will say this, however, while I would rather release one or more of the Now & Forever books each year (I’d have put the entire series out at one time if I’d had it all written!), but if a book isn’t ready it isn’t ready and I won’t release it. I hope my readers will understand.
