The past two days I’ve been having a glorious visit in Baltimore, and as a result my work time suffered immensely. I was actually pretty impressed that I managed to fit as much in as I did: Thursday and Friday were the first two days of the trip, and I managed to keep my update schedule and do a lot more correspondence. I might have to expand my tactics for finding bookbloggers soon; I’ve queried almost everyone I could find on Tumblr thus far (and gotten wonderful responses!).
On the bus ride back to Philadelphia, I continued the work I started two days ago of proofreading the first draft of the sequel to Mutt. When I wrote Mutt, I finished the first draft, then immediately proofread it and sent it to a few good friends for critiques. With this second book, I’ve been sitting on the draft since January; I haven’t had time to proofread it or add one final scene that I wanted to include before letting my beta readers have at it. So in the four and a half months since finishing the draft, only one person (my best friend Justin) has read it. Don’t worry, he says it’s excellent, and I don’t see how he could be even remotely biased.
