On Writing: Books Take Time!

Well, books take a while. Write a proposal (September 2013 – January 2014), write first draft (June 2014 –  January 2015), have draft returned with twenty page list of suggested changes (April 2015), make revisions to the text (April 2015 – June 2015), first glimpse of book cover proposals (June 2015). Not that I’ve been spending all my time on any of these things (I have a job, moved across a continent and had a new baby in that time). Apparently we’re looking at a likely February 2016 publication date. The upside is that the book – and those who read it – benefit from this very thorough development process and the outcome is something of higher quality than would otherwise be the case. That’s the theory anyway!
