The title of this piece comes from an old Ian and Sylvia song, “Summer Wages.” Here’s a link to a video of them doing it with Emmy Lou Harris:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=65CL9NrlL5I It seems appropriate to what is happening in Novel Land.
I last heard from the good people at eLectio Publishing about a week ago when I emailed them to make sure they had received the signed contract page for On Wings of the Morning. They had, and wrote that they would be in touch when the book was “in process.” I imagine my first task will be to look over the “publisher’s edit” and see what I want to do with their suggestions. With a probable publishing date of late October, I flatter myself to think the manuscript was a “clean edit.” (Thanks, local editors and beta readers!) So, I’ll keep you informed.
I continue on the first draft of On the Wings of Angels, the third book in the Beyond the Blue Horizon series. (The other two are On Wings of the Morning and On the Wings of the Wind.) I’m up to 30,000 words out of a projected 80,000, so I should finish by late October.
Exciting times, all right. Stay tuned!
