48 pages left

Not much left to go! I'm trying to finish in the next week or so. I'll keep you all posted.
Cover art should be quick once the editing is done. It'll probably take me longer to find a good pdf converter than anything. It's so hard to get a good one that switches to 6x9 and embeds fonts.

expect it on lulu within 2 weeks!

Final 100 pages

I'm into the final 100 pages of editing for Earthbound. I'm going to try to finish it in the next 2 weeks. Cover artwork and layout should take a day or two. It should come in around 600 pages, and I toned down the appendices. I have a few pieces of artwork that may or may not make it into the volume.

The real question is... open ending for a possible volume 2, or leave it with a pretty good cliffhanger for a necessary volume 2? I'm not sure it's necessarily worth revisiting, but it might be popular. We'll see.

Two Thirds Done

Still editing earthbound. I'm 2/3 of the way done. I had to shrink it to size 10 font to get it under 700 pages. It was near a thousand at size 12. I also shrank a few things down and cut down some of the appendices and other junk I wanted to add. They didn't add much to it.

I'm 400 of 600 pages done, and moving fairly quickly. I work on it for 30-45 minutes perhaps 3-5 times a week. I'm trying to move it along, but there's not always a lot of time.

After that's done, I might work on The Emperor's Dogs, a new book I have an idea for. The Sworn Lands Vol 2 is still in the works, and I have about a third of In Roam 2 done, too. Not sure if I'm going back to that.
