In Progress

Got the electronic galleys for Ramal today. This is the PDF version of what the final book will pretty much look like, and my last pass through it before publication in December. 

At this point, the copy editor will be looking for typos and formatting glitches, and that's what I'll be looking for–from here on, even a small change will mean they have to reformat a bunch of stuff, and you don't get to rewrite in galleys unless you are willing to pay for the time it takes to recast the book.

Aside from piddly stuff, it had better be done by now.

I'm a few chapters into it, and so far, it's pretty clean. Any corrections I spot, I'll upload to my editor and that'll be that until I see the print copy.

Editor's note: The second ms, The Vastalimi Gambit, is officially turned in.

AWESOME!!! Can't wait for it. I bout Musashi Flex in 2009, bought that entire series, and have re-read it probably 6 or 7 times since I got it, at least once a year. Excited for something new!

December? I'll definitely take some time off from playing Santa to look for this one. Seriously looking forward to reading this series.

Great to see a new novel/series coming out. I still have a longing for more Matador series, but this looks like it will tide me over for a while.
