Getting Close

P-day is almost upon me. I hope to have a proof copy back of my book by mid August. Once that comes back, I can release The Interdimensional Dumpster upon the world. Amazon, Borders, Barnes and Noble, even itunes. Look out world!

Projected Publishing Date

I am shooting for August 21st as the publishing date. I am on vacation from my "Real" job that week and will put on my author hat to get this thing finished. I say "Real" job because that's the one that actually pays me!

I wrote a rough draft of the first two chapters of the next book. I started doing the as an outline and just kept writing. The flow was great. I need to sit down and outline more of the book, but this heat has been crazy.

And so it begins..

I just did (what I hope will be) the final edit on my manuscript. I contacted the cover artist today and he assures me that I'll have cover art by the middle of August. Him and his wife just had Baby #2 (Penelope Rae) so I guess that means he will finish it on his sleepless nights!

Good luck Marc!
