A number of folks have been clubbing me over the head because it’s now past 14 October when I’d hoped to have REAPING THE HARVEST out and…it’s not out yet. The reason is that my editors had some great suggestions that, unfortunately, involve a lot more revising than I had initially expected. The plot hasn’t changed, but I’m cleaning it up a lot from what was in the original draft.
At this point, I’m hoping to have the revisions done this week, then I’ll shoot it off to the beta readers to let them have a go at it. Once I’ve made any changes they submit (and those have typically been bloopers that slipped through the cracks), I’ll get the ebook versions published and start working on the print edition, which should appear a few weeks later.
Bottom line: I’m resetting the release date to 28 October (yeah, yeah, of this year!). Now I have to get back to work!
P.S. Once this book is out, I’ll be reviewing the recording of the BITTER HARVEST audiobook, which should be available in November!
