Well, I finished compiling all the chapters and such into one Word document this afternoon. It contained 91,095 words across 342 pages.
The next step is to send the manuscript off to my beta readers, and that is completed as well. As one of my beta readers oh-so-eloquently put it, “I’m already reading it, ya doof.” Do you know who to ‘blame’ for it? I do. 🙂
I’m planning to take a little bit of time off from writing, before I start working up the next book in the series. I’ll be working on preparing this manuscript for publication as feedback arrives from my beta readers and (later on) the editor I’ll hire.
Like Tipperary, it’s a long road to publication, but I’m looking forward to making the journey.
