Story Update 2014-08-16

As of today, Geekwif has edited through chapter nineteen - only four more chapters to go! It is likely that she will finish chapter twenty tomorrow, and then we'll see how far she gets during the week. It is certainly conceivable that she could be done by next weekend.

I am putting the finishing touches on my author's bio. Not a big deal, it's just a short blurb telling who I am and what I do. One publisher that I intend to submit the book to requests the bio to be written in a certain format, so that is the specific version I am working on. I will very likely write different bios for different publishers, depending on their requirements and core readership.

I have also started looking through some of my other old story ideas and notes, giving thought to the next novel I will write. There's no reason for me to sit on my duff waiting for a publisher to respond, since they can take quite a while and sometimes don't respond at all. So, I'll keep giving it more thought - I might even decide to write an entirely new story. Hard to tell at this point, but I'm sure I will post an update on that topic when I either have a decision, or am down to two or three choices and feel like talking about it.
