The editing process has began to prepare Thicker Than Blood for publication. I started the moment I finished the book, and now that I've found a useful editing program that also helps me it is a lot less stressful than I remember. Useful editing is a stressful time for me; both times I did it before for my book made me feel as though I just simply did not have enough time. This time it's different, and maybe it is because I have learned that editing cannot be planned out to be finished at a specific date. Regardless, I feel relieved with the fact that I do have more than enough time to edit and still release this year. The other part of it that is a relief is knowing that all of my ideas are down on paper; everything is there for me, and now I can go through and add and/or delete whatever I feel is necessary.
Since editing might not be all that interesting for you to read about, I do promise to have a variety of topics posted on the blog. I would love for everyone to be involved in this process as possible, and I've been looking through old posts on the blog to see what I have done. What I did notice is that with CWP I had a huge countdown, and for each day that passed there was a new post with more talk about the book to pull readers in. Unfortunately I did not have the time to do that as much with the release of Shadows and Embers, but I do plan on doing it again with this book. I don't want to leave any corner untouched, and I definitely want to involve everybody. After reviewing this material, I've come up with a list of different posts you can expect:

  • Behind the character and/or behind the name
  • Fun facts
  • Scenery/setting choices
  • Giveaway(s)
  • Teasers
  • Excerpts from the book
  • Quotes
  • Cover reveal
  • Countdown
  • pre-ordering details
  • release (with links to purchase)
The ones in green text won't be happening until I have a release date or until publication (depending on what they are), but everything else will be coming up little by little. Stick around and don't miss out!
