Reading and Revising

This is just a quick update to let you know I am deep in revisions on Sacrifice, which (fingers crossed) will be out next month.

I want it out as soon as possible, but not sooner. By that I mean that I made a pledge to myself not to simply slop out inferior, unfinished work. So I will polish as much as necessary to be sure I publish something I can be proud of.

While I am working on revisions, I am also catching up on reading. I have a long TBR list, including the novels of friends, books I have been looking forward to for a long time. The one I shall be savoring tonight is The Wild Grass and Other Stories by Davin Malasarn. He's a marvelous writer. I expect I shall be quite jealous of his writing, but that's okay, since I have already decided that he and his two co-conspirators at The Literary Lab are in a class far above mine. In a way, knowing that is liberating. I don't have to worry about trying to be as good, I shall simply enjoy.

I can't wait to dive into Davin's book, as well! I have a list about 40 miles long. I really need to learn how to read faster. :(

That Malasarn guy's in a class by himself.

Oh, you all.

Tara Maya, thanks for mentioning my book and good luck with yours! I know what you mean about not wanting to rush. Now that I have the self-publishing process figured out I'm really fighting to keep from putting more work out there. I need to wait until I have something that's actually worth publishing.

I hope you won't make us wait too long, Domey. I am quite certain that you have more worth publishing.
