Figuring things out for August and everything after.

As I sit, still slightly befuddled by the week just passed, I ponder the long term. In the wake of the deaths of two of my students and two more greviously injured, I don’t know what my summer will look like.

I still have big goals: finishing STRAIGHT INTO DARKNESS is the biggest.  The book release party is scheduled for August 28th at Village Books. It’s up for pre-sale on Amazon. PLEASE don’t buy it yet! I need to have the final electronic mobi ebook file uploaded by the 9 pm PST, August 8th deadline in order to meet my pre-sale release date of August 18th.

I may not make it. There is much to do.  This weekend I did have a  breakthrough on why the climax and conclusion were not working for me. The bad guys weren’t actually bad enough, nor active enough to carry the weight as protagonists. I think I have figured out how to fix that in this third draft. My deadline for that? Seven days from now.

So, I am planning on laying low on the social media. Probably popping up to talk about word, scene and chapter counts in the revision.  Send me positive thoughts and word karma!!

Thanks,

Rob
