Very frustrating...

But it will come, I'm sure. Just keep knocking on that door.

Oh wow, awesome! Thanks so much, man! It won't be live until October 2, but hopefully they're the patient sort. :p

Taking the first post of Loose Circuit live in under two hours. I actually have butterflies. First time I've done an "instant" book launch. Ha! Craziness.

We'll see how it goes over the next few weeks.

So a small bit of news. I got Supremacy's Shadow back from my editor. He had this to say (snipped out of his feedback):

Quote
Fantastic book, which is fantastically written. Not sure how may passes you've made, but the MS is clean. Nice to have one like that. Don't get them all that often.

Quote
Read great, solid characters, and the flow was nice. I think it will do well for you.

This guy is a great writer and has been editor for a well-known small press for a number of years, so that's definitely encouraging to hear given how much work I've put into the book. As much as writers often say we don't necessarily need validation, it's always great to hear some reassurance from someone you respect.

Editing starts this week, and I'll hopefully be getting the book out to advance readers by December. The response to Loose Circuit has also been positive (I have a small group of regular readers, so far) so all in all, I'm feeling pretty good!

tebu that sounds like the best kind of feedback a writer can hope for.
