Editing and Webdesign.

Currently Editing ÆtherShadow and have reached chapter nine. This is only the first editing pass, but at least it feels like I am nearly finished with Book #1.0 Æthershadow.

First alpha reader of Dragon World:Exiles enjoyed it so that a good start and the editor has Book #2.0 Kitsune. The next twelve months are going to be busy for me and I really need to knuckle down and put more effort into my writing.

http://www.ajb2k3.co.uk/AETT/ finally has the first test page up and while it is almost finished, there is still some work left on it.

That is all for now, see you in port next time, Airship Captains.

While trying to rewrite a manuscript that has missed its deadline I have come across a section that is missing a scene. This scene could be used as a chance to take a break before jumping into the action, but I am struggling. I could just drop the scene but the section that follows feels funny without it.

What to do, what to do.

See you in port next time, Airship Captains.

Book 1 Æther Shadow officially underway.

The original draft of Book 1 Æther Shadow weighed in at only 40K words. Today I reached the 17K mark of which only 4K is edited from the old version. The new version has a deeper story and now includes the protagonist side of the story that was absent from the first version. The self imposed deadline is getting worryingly close and I still have a long way to go, but this is a good start.

See you in port next time Airship Captains.

There is just something about reading in book format that makes it easer to edit however all I had was an Android tablet and Kindle K3 keyboard that are unable to edit pages files (or scrivner!) so this weekend I picked up a cheap iPad Mini to use as a reader/editor. This makes it so much easer to read and edit my book in a more natural ebook format style.

Being able to edit on both OSX and IOS (via the iCloud) should make things so much easer.

 

Anyone else do this when working on there books?
