The bad: My website is totally screwed up... I tried uploading pics from my trip in France and something went awry. The feedback page for the Windstone forum is running fine, though - except that the background scheme doesn't show. I'll be fixing it, but first, I need to go through the comments from the editor.
The good: Yes, an new editor (the one for Green Dragon left, other stuff happened to the next one - my poor dragons were not feeling loved for a time) looked it over and gave me her comments on what to fix/work on.
So White Dragon will still come out this year, just a bit later than first planned.
I just sent White Dragon to the publishers...
I'm starting Chapter 2.
Adaneth (Shout_of_Joy) was kind enough to beta-read the first draft - which, given its designation, really wasn't ready to be read. However, even if I detected underlying disappointment, I'm really glad and extremely thankful she forged through it, because I now know exactly where I'm going with this story.
So thank you again, Joelle!
Totally forgot to post about it... It's going through a beta-read while I take a break and start with Purple Dragon.
I just started Chapter 19 of White Dragon.
Green Dragon has 18 chapters, so now I know that this book will be longer than the first.
Well, I finally came to the conclusion that I have to start my website over: the file somehow got corrupted. It started when I'd get an out of memory message, then later, I couldn't upload pics with a pop-up window option and now, it just will not let me update at all.
So for now, the basics are there, so namely a home page with a link to here and to the book section. I also have the feedback lists up and running for the Windstone forum.
Next, I'll do my PYO gallery, then my collection, which was in dire need of updating, so that part isn't a huge loss.
... White Dragon is scheduled for 2012.
I reread everything I had so far and I can get easily back into the groove. I now more or less remember where I was going - I scribbled enough on my notes to actually make sense - so here goes!
Be warned, some of you will be solicited to beta-read this year...
