Murdoch's Shadow Completed!
Well, friends, Murdoch's Shadow is finally in the bag! And WOW, what a ride this one has been.
I finished applying all developmental, creative critique, and proofreading edits in a blaze of glory while on a 3-day business trip to Temecula, California. Every minute I wasn't meeting people, I was editing like a tempest, facing down my pre-order deadline with Amazon. Some darn good edits went in during this time when I could really focus in the hotel.
The first couple of nights had me working till about 3am. About 6 hours later, I'd grab breakfast and a mocha and be at it again. Last night was a doozy, but I had to finish it for my formatter. My alpha reader, friend, and support specialist Jacob Kuntzman was with me through 3am his time checking over all the last-minute edits. So grateful for him!
Now I'm traveling home on about 1.5 hours of sleep, but I'm super thrilled with the final product and stoked to have it done.
The hotel was the perfect environment.
✔️ View of mountains (or maybe just big hills)
✔️ Good chair and desk and internet
✔️ All-day availability of mocha
✔️ Free food from the convention
✔️ Manner wafers for a taste of Vienna (one of my favorite places in Europe)
✔️ Free bottled waters included with the room
Truly, I busted my tail on this book for MONTHS. I put in the time and the money to get it right. I do that for me, because I'm obsessive, but I also do that for YOU because I truly want you to have an awesome, immersive experience in this world that I am passionate about. And it's really just beginning!
