Hmm. Several blog posts ago, I said I finished the copy edited version of BEFORE THE STORM and that would be the last work I’d have to do on it. How did I forget about the “printout?” Yesterday, the Fed-Ex guy brought the big box to my door. I looked up from my laptop where I was working on AFTER THE STORM and groaned as I realized what he had for me: the printout, all 515 pages of it, ready for my final scrutiny. The scrutinizing must be completed by February 11. AFTER THE STORM is due March 1. Oh dear.
Fortunately, I was nearly finished with MJ Rose’s THE REINCARNATIONIST, which has been my nighttime reading material for the last week. (I highly recommend it to those of you who enjoyed THE DaVINCI CODE. Great escape reading). I finished that last night, and tonight I’ll start reading BEFORE THE STORM once again, trying to catch those final errors. Daytime hours, though, are reserved for AFTER THE STORM. Hope I don’t get them mixed up!
