I totally forgot to unpublish Cindy’s Story when I unpublished the Unseen Things series as I work my way to re-editing everything into 2nd editions. I’ll republish it when I get the 2nd edition done, but that won’t be until I complete the 2nd editions of the series.
The editing is totally done on the 2nd edition of book 6. I just need to finish all the other stuff now so I can publish it. I’ve been working on the editing for the 2nd edition of book 7, so I really need to just take a day and finish up with book 6 before I get too awful far into it. I remembered the other day that I haven’t been updating the covers and descriptions for the 2nd edition books here on the site. I need to try to remember to do that at some point. For right now, they’re still all at 1st edition.
Anyway, gonna have some lunch and then get back to work. 🙂
The 2nd edition version of book 5 of the series, Immortals, has now been completed and published on all platforms, including the print version, which is available on Amazon. I’m currently working on the second editing pass of book six. I’m not sure how long it’ll be before I’m able to complete it and get it published, but I’m thinking it’ll probably be around three weeks or so since the first editing pass is already done.
Anyway, that’s it for now. I need some sleep, so I can get back to work. 🙂
The re-edit is completed on book 5, Immortals, but since I usually take a little break between finishing the re-edit and doing all the finish work that comes after it, I decided to get started on the 2nd edition re-edit of book 6, Division. I’m going to bounce back and forth between working on both, and that way I can keep making forward progress with the re-edits, without having too much time off in between. So far I’ve got the first chapter done, and I’ve already added 1,103 words just on the first pass.
Anyway, tomorrow I’ll spend some time doing more work on book 5. I have to re-do the cover, make a print cover, make the print version, write new author notes, redo all the metadata, etc… It’s very time consuming and tedious, which is why I’ve decided to do things this way from now on. I think it’ll help smooth out the process a bit.
I finally finished the second edition re-edit of book 5, Immortals. I added 26,793 words to the story, which is roughly about four chapters worth of material. That seems to be the average in these re-edits so far, which is working out quite well. Anyway, now I just have to do all the rest of the stuff that comes after, which is a pretty massive project in and of itself. I just need to focus on one thing at a time, and I’ll get through it.
Since I don’t really want anyone reading any of the 1st edition books in the series while I’m doing the 2nd editions, I’ve unpublished them all aside from the four that are currently done, and Cindy’s Story. I’ll probably do a 2nd edition of Cindy’s Story too, but I’m going to leave that one published for now.
Why did I do this? Because the 2nd editions aren’t just coming out good, they’re coming out REALLY good, and each one so far has been really beefed up and enhanced. They’re exactly what I always wanted the series to be, and I only want the best representation of each of the books out there and available.
Right now I’m on chapter 6 of the 2nd editing pass of book 5, Immortals. I’m not sure how much longer it’ll take to finish it, but most likely it’ll be within the next two to three weeks, and then I’ll immediately start on book 6.
I’ve also removed the ability to purchase the books through the website since no one ever used it anyway.
I struggled with whether to do this or not, but in the end, I think it’s the right decision, and it’s easy enough to re-publish them when the 2nd editions are ready.
Anyway, back to work…
