Then on Thursday I heard from Sandra, my editor, that Saints & Sinners will have the substantive edit completed and ready for my review/rewrite early this week. I hope to turn it around and send it back for the copy edit within two weeks (of course that will be determined by the AMOUNT of rework required. At any rate, the publishing date is now probably only weeks away rather than months. I'm pleased and excited about that.
Also on Thursday I was contacted by Australian Author Rebecca Byfield who writes both under her actual name and with the pen name Riley Banks. As Riley Banks, she does book reviews and author interviews on her Riley Banks The Writer's Shack web page (pictured in this blog). She asked if she could post an interview with me. I was very happy to do that since she has a large international following. The interview was published tonight and can be read by following the link: http://www.rileybanks.net/2/post/2013/02/virgil-alexander-talks-about-his-book-the-wham-curse.html
So it was a week of pleasant discussion, progress on my next book, and potentially reaching some new readers; all of which is very nice. Oh, and my third mystery, as yet unnamed, is now 115 pages long; that's about one third of the story now in text. I hope the following weeks continue to be so productive, and I hope they are equally good for you.
