The good news is that I have almost everything I need to release Sharpshooter. The cover’s done. The interior maps are done. I have comments back from all but one of my beta readers.
The bad news is that I caught a serious cold way back on January 8, and still have it as of January 31. It has killed my productivity. I write (or edit, at this stage) during lunch hours and in the evenings after the kids go to sleep. Well, with the cold *I’ve* been going to sleep in the evenings instead. My lunch hours have similarly gotten crunched due to some day job issues.
So while it’s almost ready, there’s no way I’m going to be able to get a paperback proof copy back in time to review it and still release it by the 15th.
I’m not crazy about slipping the release date again, but health has to come first.
