The Search is Still Going

I decided to take my search in a different way. I already know that developmental editing will not be cheap. I decided to try and see what the reasonable price would be for a developmental editor. I asked around at all of the writing communities that I am part of. I have seen some good tips. Some are saying that publishing houses have editors in them. They commented that Steel Prison isn’t long enough to be a novel. (Hence why I am going to a developmental editor in the first place.) They all agree that it’s really expensive. A couple of them offer some sites to check out for future reference. I bookmarked them and I will go back read them.

I need to go back to looking for an agent again. I’m trying hard to curve my laziness. It’s working, but it needs to go faster. I will keep working at it. What do you think? Do you have any ideas for a reasonable price for a developmental editor? Leaves your comments in the comment section of this post. While you’re at it…

Moving to New Stage in the Game

I have decided to go a more traditional route with my publishing. I have been self-publishing with ebooks. But, now I want to go the traditional way of publishing with Steel Prison. I’ve had people edit it many times, including my mom. I sent it through Nano in 2009. The current of the manuscript count is 48,827 words and 109 pages long. I feel that it could be a bit longer. What I am looking for is a professional developmental editor. I have started my search and made a list comparing prices and their selling comments. In the past, I have used beta readers. But since this is going the traditional way, I decided to step it up and go professional. So far, I contacted an editor I follow on Google+, five editors on Linkin, and one of the writers from a writer chatroom that I frequent gave me a link to a bunch of editors. I haven’t checked the website yet, but I will do it tomorrow. I know that professional editing is not cheap and I don’t have that kind of money at the moment. So, I will make comparisons and come down to the most reasonable price that I can try and scrape together.

I also want to look for a literary agent as well. Ideally, I want to find one before Christmas. I have a website to start my search. I will start to look on Independence Day. Wish me luck, everyone. While I look for an editor and an agent, you can…

Vacation and Wrapping Up in June

Later on this month, I will going on vacation for a week. Saturday and Sunday will not let me have internet access then. So, I am going to try something while I’m vacation. I will write the last two chapter of City Lounge: Paris volume three in a Word document and see if I can set the post on WordPress to post in the future. I will need to get the songs I need for them first. Plus, I will try to get one day online to make my post. Luckily, I won’t have that much to post that week. Just a couple of chapters and a preview. I might get to do some editing on Steel Prison while I’m there too. Plus, some other shorts I want to publish too.

Speaking of which here is a list of things that I am going to wrap up this month:

  • Gentleman’s Club (Volume Twenty-Four)
  • Two volumes of Dreamland
  • Reposting last season’s Tengoku.Chikyu.Jigoku
  • A couple of other previews
  • Volume Three of City Lounge: Paris
  • Season eight of Earth Child

Plus, I get to start season seven of my Wasteland Project on the last Monday of this month. I can’t wait. Until then…

Happy 2018 Everyone!

Welcome to 2018, my darlings! May this year be better than the last one.

Good news, chapter three of Steel Prison has been edited! I am hoping for snow this week. I was told that I was going to get some this week. My first day into the new year’s been pretty good. Got some writing done. Work’s been picking and I did some jobs on the first day. I will do more jobs tomorrow. I will get paid next week too.

What shall we be looking forward to? Well, I will try to get in editing of chapter four of Steel Prison. I still intend on getting that published some time this year. Not just for the ebook either, I intend to do hardcover and maybe send it to a publisher. I will still be fixing  my site to get rid of the Photobucket pictures. Some things will be finished. I am going to start new project to tide me over for waiting to start the next season of my Wasteland Project. (The waiting is going to suck like always.) I will work on a one-shot Durarara omake to go with the Wonderland series. I might do another one shot pilot for the Wasteland Project. For now on that one, I just have bits and pieces. I will try to get a full-time job while I’m at it.

That is so much to promise in one day, but it is doable for me. Also, these aren’t New Year’s Resolutions. I never make those. But, I am determined to make this year better than last year. Wish me luck. While you’re at it…

I am Done with Webs.com!

That’s it. Webs have screwed up big time! They already messed when legacy file manager was not a priority anymore. You have to upgrade to use html code in site builder. I tried to use the older html editor, but it won’t show the results on the website anymore. Webs won’t let me downgrade either. I finally gave up and moved back to Neocities. Photobucket i s no longer a problem with them anymore. I have moved the main site to Neocities and I am liking it. I still have to edit everything and make it right. That’s going to take me a while, but I can do it.

I feel that 2018 will get better for me. I already have chapter two of Steel Prison edited. I can’t wait to get started on chapter three. City Lounge will be back again soon. I will be wrapping up New York and heading back to Paris for a third season. I have some many plans for the new year. I can’t wait to deliver on it. Merry Christmas and see you all in the new year. For now…

Christmas Will be Coming

Both Christmas trees are up. (My grandmother’s and mine.) I will go Christmas shopping tomorrow. (A big part of it, anyway.) I still have a huge load to work on. My Netflix list is shrinking again. I will be done with this series called Dad of Light  by Thursday. I might finish another one before 2017 is over.

Speaking of which, I will try to get onto editing Steel Prison over the holidays. I am just about done with chapter two last time I checked. I am so close, but yet so far away. I am aiming to have Steel Prison published by next year. I have gotten back into playing Sims again. I missed this game so much. It feels so good to be playing again.

I am still waiting for 2017 to be over so that I can start having a better year in 2018. While I do that, you can…

Is 2017 Over Yet?

I can’t wait for this year to be over. Sadly, we have three more days and a whole month left. I am so bored, to be honest. I feel like I am stuck. I’m still writing, but I haven’t put out anything to publish this year. My job’s getting slow and the edits for Steel Prison aren’t on a schedule. Most of my efforts were spent fixing my web site. (Thanks Photobucket for ruining everything! Not!)

I don’t know. Maybe I just need something new. Maybe 2018 will be better. I do need to make some changes. And I will try as hard as I can. Maybe find something new in the process. For now, I have to get through the rest of this year while you…

It’s Time to Wrap Up Things

Ever look at piece of work and go, “Yeah, it’s time to wrap you up.” I am going to end a draft that I have been working on since 2009. I think I will finish it on Wednesday. I will have see how I feel.

Things have been going to slow at my job. I’m hoping that it picks up again. I’m still fixing the pictures on my site. I need to fix the pictures in this blog too. The progress is moving along, however. I am just about to finish fixing up the main pages on the main site. I still have to work on the smaller sections, but I know I can do it. Edits for Steel Prison is coming along nicely and I think I like Taylor Swift’s new song. (I don’t really care about her, but the song’s good in a way. I’m using it to write a chapter for my story, Devil’s Scandal, tomorrow.) I can’t wait to write more for my Wasteland 2011 project this week. I get to start on the D.Gray-Man section this Thursday.

That’s about it for now, I think. You will see more of the City Lounge: London soon next month. For now…

New Book Publishing in the Works

Good news, everyone!

Sometime in June and July, I will be publishing a book that I have been sitting on for years. The title will be called Steel Prison. I have been it through Nano and the now-defunct Autonomy. I will have it beta read to get it polished up one more time. (It’s been edited a good number of times. I forgot how many.) There was a cover for it on Autonomy, but I think I lost that one. I made a cover during my college years for like a hard cover copy for a digital photo editing class, but it’s the wrong image format. Speaking of hard covers, this might be my first book that I will have made into a hard copy along with ebook. I will see if that turns and if it is possible.

Stick around and see everything unfold, until then…
