Update on my novel... Can't Post

A lot has happened since my last post!

1. I've met my editor. We got on great! He is really invested in making "Carrot Field" a success. We agreed on most issues and got really excited outlining plans for promotion. He knows some successful fantasy authors and we're hoping to get a few nice "blurbs" for promotion.

2. His revision notes were, for the most part, excellent, and really helped to strengthen the ms. I'm doing some additional tinkering of my own, but I'll be giving the ms back early this week. After that, I will receive the Copy Edit. I'm really glad I didn't have to do all this editing myself, I'm not an editor, and the ms needed more work than I realized - lots of gaffs, oversights, editorial artifacts, and several passages that benefited from editorial comment.

3. We are looking for a cover artist now. He wants to work with a particular artist that I am not entirely sold on, I have an artist that I prefer, we'll see what happens.

Things are hurtling forward. We are eying an April pub date. It's hard to believe, I first started imagining this story in 1994, and wrote the first version of the novel in 1995! But it's really happening and I will soon be able to hold a hard cover edition in my hands :)
