I haven’t updated for a while because I’m in a strange period where I’ve done everything I can do and the book is now out of my hands. It’s unsettling because I’m a control freak, nosy and impatient. The October release date feels a long time away.
I received a formatted document of Falling for Her Captor a couple of weeks ago which looked like the pages of a ‘proper’ book and gave me no end of excitement. I had to read through and add any comments or changes and respond to the ones the copy editors had added. Once I stopped swearing at the Track Changes function I enjoyed that, added a few notes, found some typos and sent it back.
The art department are busy designing my cover which I’ll be very excited to see when I get it emailed through to me. I’m keeping my fingers crossed they get me a Tom Ellis-alike to model (and crossed even harder they’ll invite me to the photoshoot to meet him).
Book two is at seven chapters now and over 20k words (I didn’t even notice that milestone). I’m really enjoying writing it and have sent it so far to my editor to see what she thinks as well reasoning that if I’m going to have to make changes, which I am sure is inevitable, I’d rather do them early on than once I’ve finished it completely. I’m now waiting to hear back so crossing more fingers.
Apart from that I’ve been amusing myself with trying to get to grips with social media. I’ve bought a domain name Elisabethhobbes.co.uk. As soon as I work out what else I can cross I’ll try link it to WordPress and hopefully not accidentally lose everything in the process.
