All Aboard the Comma Express

I have a tentative release schedule for Karl Thorson and the Jade Dagger of mid-November. And that means editing. What fun.

That last sentence, for those of you new to this web log, was sarcasm. Editing is not, has not, and never will be fun. However, I have to say that this trip aboard the editing train is surprisingly smooth and relatively comfortable. Perhaps I was more careful than usual in the initial drafts. Maybe I’m getting better. Whatever the reason, the requested changes are minimal.

I am, it seems, overly scanting of commas. I’m not entirely convinced that is the case, but I am willing to allow the editor’s judgement to supersede mine in the vast majority of the requests for additional commas. What’s the point of having editors if you are unwilling to listen to them?

My hyphenation game is also, apparently, not up to par. Something to work on improving, I suppose.

The point is, the editing is proceeding smoothly and I’ll be able to get back to writing the sequel shortly.

More news to follow. Perhaps a cover reveal. I know I’m looking forward to seeing it.
