DAYLIGHT is done!!!

It hasn’t quite sunk in yet, but give me a few minutes… or a few days. Okay, give me until the end of March, after which it will be time to panic all over again, but for much better reasons.

That fantasy novel I’ve been proofreading and editing, the one that’s a massive beast of a tome that comes in at over 240K words — it’s done.  Sent off to the author just a little while ago.  Next, the author takes a look, finds that I’ve missed nothing (went over it with a metaphorical fine-toothed comb, although apparently I was supposed to use a red lightsaber instead of a red pen — who knew?), and sends it on to the people who will handle converting this manuscript into a book.  By the end of March (or sooner), there should be a paperback edition.  Definitely an e-book.

I believe the word I am looking for is Huzzah!


About Thomas Weaver

I’m a writer and editor who got into professional editing almost by accident years ago when a friend from university needed someone to copyedit his screenplay about giant stompy robots (mecha). Having discovered that I greatly enjoy this kind of work, I’ve been putting my uncanny knack for grammar and punctuation, along with an eclectic mental collection of facts, to good use ever since as a Wielder of the Red Pen of Doom. I'm physically disabled, and for the past several years, I’ve lived with my smugly good-looking twin Paul, who writes military science fiction and refuses to talk about his military service because he can’t. Sometimes Paul and I collaborate on stories, and sometimes I just edit whatever he writes. It's worked out rather well so far. My list of non-writing-related jobs from the past includes librarian, art model, high school teacher, science lab gofer… Although I have no spouse or offspring to tell you about, I do have six cats. (The preferred term is "Insane Cat Gentleman.") I currently spend my time blogging, reading, editing, and fending off cats who like my desk better than my twin’s.
