I was hoping to have this sucker in print by the end of Jan/mid of Feb and I still do. A minor delay may be caused by a publisher who has taken interest in it. I will delay to hear what they have to say and what their offer is, as it would be foolish to do otherwise.
Hopefully they come to a decision quickly enough that I can meet my deadline one way or the other!
I also found a great editor who will be ripping my writing to shreds and putting it back together in a more orderly fashion.
PS: For anyone who has ever wondered how much it costs to create a book in terms of paying an editor/having a cover designed: The answer is I have found editors that range from 1.5 cents to 5.5 cents per word (and the skill varies with the price, pretty much). Book covers range between 200 and 500 dollars, or so. I anticipate this book will run me almost 2 grand before it begins selling... so at least you can get an idea of the risk involved with making a book!
