I know. I know.
I’m terribly late.
I was running around all over the internet telling anyone who would listen that my book would (finally) be out in November of last year.
I was all ready to go and then I realized that the book still wasn’t good enough.
I’m not talking about the feeling of not being good enough that is born out of creative insecurities (something every artist suffers from). You know…when your work is never really good enough for you?
That’s not what I’m talking about.
I realized that the book, while definitely good overall, and really good in parts, still needed a major restructuring at the story level.
Rather than put out a subpar work for the sake of meeting a promised deadline, I decided to just go back to the drawing board and push the release date back.
This is what happens when you learn new things. After reading Story Engineering by Larry Brooks , I realized exactly what White Rabbit was missing. And I would be remiss if I didn’t get back to work and add that.
So basically, things are going to take about a year longer than I’d originally planned but I promise it will be worth the wait. Plus, the sequels (also in progress) should go much faster during the first go round.
Right now I’m focusing on redoing some key scenes, as well as adding some and cutting others. In a few months, I’ll send it off for another round of editing.
You’ll be able to read free excerpts from White Rabbit starting next month. Sign up in the sidebar for updates.
