I started editing it on Sunday, and I've already got some notes on things I should think about changing from an enthusiastic beta-reader who excitedly emailed me about this project in late December. Yeah, that email was totally a muse. And my friend Patrick Dilloway said he'd take a stab at editing it before I send it off to Double Dragon Publishing in the near future (I haven't sent Pat the manuscript yet because I don't want it to be a total mess with spelling errors and punctuation all over the place). I think I would like another beta reader though. I know most of my blog readers are not familiar with the story (and that's totally fine because we are blog buddies and not novel buddies and what I write is understandably "the cup of choice" for a very small minority of readers), but there might be one out there that's read the first two and legitimately liked them (and weren't just saying nice things because...well...you don't stab blog buddies in the back).
So, if you are one of those people who legitimately wants to immerse yourself back into the series with the next installment and see what craziness I managed to dream up in three years, please either leave me a comment or a message, and I'll send you a copy of my first draft in pdf format. Obviously, I'd like comment back on what's working, what isn't working, etc.
Please don't feel obligated to read my book because I've been supportive to you in the past. As this is the third novel, I really only want people who like the story to give me advice on what I should or should not change (if that makes sense).
And if you want to just leave a comment so you can move to your next blog, tell me about what you did this weekend. Did you do any writing or finish any projects?
