I missed what would have been the deadline for Episode 11. There’s a reason for that, though. I decided to break format and release this Season Compilation as a single book only. I polled some readers and the overwhelming response was that they preferred this format.
It worked better for me, as well. From a management standpoint, I’d have to do six times the amount of work with formatting, covers, and so forth to release the five individual episodes plus the season compilation.
The other deciding factor was that the point I wanted to end Episode 11 at came after nearly 150 pages. That would have been a tough precedent to set for a thriller in this day and age. In addition to that, this one flows much more like a traditional novel than the episodic formula of the previous editions of Noble Intentions. So, while the book will still be broken up into five equal episodic parts, you’ll get it all at once.
The first three drafts of Season Three are complete and the manuscript is with my editor. She’s fairly quick and already has 75% of it back to me. I’ll should be working on edits this coming week and maybe the following depending on how well I did my job. After that I have a review process I follow using a tablet with a digitizer screen and a digital pen. A few more changes will be made at that point, then it’s off for proofreading.
My goal is May 23rd. Lots to do and little time to do it in!
