I received an email from my editor today confirming that my revision letter for Book 4 is going to be arriving in my inbox tomorrow. Yeah, just in time for the weekend!?! No, this is a good thing. I've had enough of a break from Book 4 that I should be able to look at it with a fresh set of eyes. My editor has made it sound like the book needs a lot of work, but that's pretty normal at this point. I learn a lesson with each book, but there always a new mistake waiting just around the corner for me.
Yesterday, I did receive a pleasant surprise in the mail. I got a pair of ARCs for the Unbound anthology. Whoo-hoo! They look so pretty and I can't wait for the rest of the world to get their hands on it. Since I received only two, I don't know if I will be holding a contest. I may check closer to the release of the book (which is at the end of August) to see if I can weasel another copy out of my publisher. Yeah, I'm sneaky like that.
I also booked my trip to North Carolina for June 12 and my tickets for the Nine Inch Nails/Jane's Addiction concert are on their way. Yeah! So, now I have a personal deadline of getting most of my revisions done before I leave for my little trip to Charlotte. That way I feel like I've earned it.
Finally, the writing of Book 5 is coming slowly. I'm dragging my feet a bit. I guess my mind is more focused on the revisions for Book 4 that I can't give my full attention to Book 5 just yet. That's okay. It's not due until October 1. Yikes!
