another update

Tomorrow's post is going to be late too.

The editor convinced me to delete 2 of the 3 final chapters. Which means the remaining chapter must be heavily rewritten. I worked on it today, and I need to work on it a lot more tomorrow. I'll post it when I have it.

Nothing like a creative crisis at the last possible moment. But the editor is right. Those scenes slowed the pacing. At one point, I'll probably post the cut chapters either here or my web site. At the moment, I'm just too frazzled. I thought the book was done!

THANK YOU for all your comments! All that positive energy makes a huge difference and keeps me going.

Dana, I will read the new ending and then read the old, I am sure neither will disappoint! It has been fun to reread the book with delayed gratification. The Third Scroll/Reluctant Concubine has remained one of my top reads DEMANDING a sequel!

OK, the final chapter is done. Now my editor is looking it over one last time to make sure it works. As soon as I get it back from her, I'll post it. Then I'll be holding my breath until I find out what you all think.

Thank you, Michelle! You won't have to wait for long for the sequel. I'm planning a mid-March release date for ACCIDENTAL SORCERESS.

Dana Marton said...

MK--Thank you for your understanding and your patience!

Dana Marton said...

yoli-mendo: RELUCTANT CONCUBINE will be available for Kindle/Nook/iTunes/Kobo/Google Play as early as Monday. (If the uploads go smoothly.)

Then book 2, ACCIDENTAL SORCERESS, will be released on all platforms mid-March.

Gabzzz--Almost ready. The final chapter is with the editor for her final read.

Dana Marton said...

Teresaalsara--I really hope you'll like the sequel. I've been working on it for the past 6 months. I'm DYING for it to be finally published so I can talk to people about it :-)Just a few more weeks...

I just wanted to say that the final final rewrite of the last chapter felt perfect to me. I loved the feels and am really looking forward to the next book!!
