Word Count, Vol.4: Over 200k. I’ve decided to stop counting until I’m finished.
Thanks to All Who Bought Echo! And BIG THANKS to Melissa, Barbara, Ian, Lorna, [anonymous], Lisa, Meg, Matt, Bobby, F.T., Alice Smith, Leslie Coop, Richard, Shauna, Sydney, Pam, Jessica, Angela, Kiesa, Ross, Keith, Alice, Daina, Daniel, Yolanda, Trace, Books4me, Vince, Laurie, and DAE for posting AMAZING reviews on Amazon!!! Ashley too for the 5 star on Nook! I’d like to reiterate that leaving a positive review for any author is the equivalent of leaving $100 tip at a restaurant (I know some authors who’d actually pay that much for a good review). Although I sincerely appreciate any love you leave me on Amazon, please consider leaving a review for ANY author you know, simply as a random act of kindness…because it’ll mean the world to ’em! (A good place to start are those I’ve listed—a few of them are authors. Let me know if you want me to put you in touch with ’em and I’ll be more than happy to do so! And no, you don’t need to have purchased their book to leave a review on Amazon; you simply needed to have used Amazon at one time or another to leave what’s called an “unverified purchase” review. If you purchased their book at the store or on another eReader, you can still leave a review for them.)
News: I’ve got a relative visiting, so production has slowed a bit. But I’ll be solo again tomorrow, and it’ll be back to the grind! I’m still slogging through the finale of Echo 4, and I’ve sent a revised version of Echo 1 & 2 over to my editor, who’s looking it over as I type this. I’m also revising Echo 3, inserting brackets around my telepathic dialogue. Not only does it create a nice implication that words are nonessential information within mind-to-mind communication, it also helps me differentiate the telepathic stuff from internal dialogue, which I put in italics. Helps keep everything cleaner, in other words. Anyways, I gotta get back to work and knock out more of Echo 4. (Geez, this really is becoming like a second job!) If you’re a writer, then I wish you inspired drafting and insightful editing!!!
