2016 Book Update

This time last year I was hoping to have finished my book by now.

That hasn’t happened, although I’ve come a long way.

In January 2015 the novel barely existed on paper. I’m now about 56,000 words in.

I still have a bit to do, including finishing off the last chapter and the epilogue. There is some substantial rewriting to do because I didn’t plan it properly. It seems like almost every time I do any writing I’m reminded of this mistake I made at the beginning!

The work doesn’t stop when I get to ‘The End’. I want to get a front cover designed, decide on a title and continue to get the word out and. As it stands, I plan to go down the self-publishing route on Amazon.

I think the writing will take another two to three months, plus two or three more for the editing and various other details to be finalised before I hit the ‘Publish’ button. That would take me through to June, which seems reasonable for now. Don’t set your watch by these estimates though.

New Year’s Resolutions:

  1. To read more – fiction, non-fiction and more about online publishing
  2. To blog more frequently and regularly
