Book 2 of my fantasy trilogy work-in-progress THE HUNTED MAGE has reached the One Hundred Ten Thousand word mark!
I first set my goal for the 1st of May and that dream fizzled and died. (I think that there was actually a sort of *splort* sound.) I was a bit disappointed with myself. (See: my last post)
I set my new goal as 9PM May 21st.
The story is not complete (I never said that…) (I never did!) but it is now ready for revision. More words will come as I go over the storyline and make sure that it is well-connected and has no gaps that will be confusing to read.
Re-wording to fix grammatical errors will happen as well, once my Lovely Bride does my first edit. (She’s good…she’s verrrry good!)
110K was my ‘Meat and Potatoes’ goal. (I still have to choose a side dish or two to make my Story Meal healthy and nutritious!)
Damn. I really should have waited until after supper to blog about this. My blood-sugar just crashed and all you are getting is food analogy. I’ll be right back…
Okay. Better now! Where was I?
What is next? She reviews #2 while I make some corrections to #1 found by my alert squad of Beta-readers. A couple more beta reviews and I think I am going to attempt to self-publish.
The debate rages across the pages of the Internets: Traditional or self-publish? Print-on-demand or e-books?
It is mind-numbing the amount of data available on the subject.
I lean toward Smashwords right now. I know that there are advocates and detractors of this as well.
How did you publish and through what medium? All reasonable discussions welcome!!
