Last night at about 10:45 PM, I put the finishing touches on the first draft of Matt Forbeck’s Brave New World: Revolution, the first book in my 12 for ’12 plan. That cut it a bit close to the end of the month, but it means I’m still on track for the year, and I get a huge amount of satisfaction from that.
The next step is to get the book compiled and out to my backers who set themselves up with the “read as you go” levels of rewards. Then I’m going to set to plotting Book 2 and Book 3. I have ideas for them already, but I need to set down actual outlines for them yet.
Once I’m done with that, I should have enough distance from the book to revise it for a second draft. Then it’s copyediting, cover art, formatting, printing (for the backers who grabbed POD editions), and release!
When I set up the BNW Kickstarter, I put June in as the expected delivery date. With luck, I should be able to do much better than that. I can’t wait for you to have a chance to read this.
