For those of you following Perigee, let me apologize for leaving you hanging for so long. As mentioned previously, a major revision is underway before it goes up for sale on Amazon. I’ve set a publishing deadline of Nov. 10th, for several reasons:
1. That’s the Marine Corps Birthday. Ooh-Rah.
2. My 25th class reunion at The Citadel is that weekend and I need something to brag about.
3. I really, really, ought to get the blasted thing up before the Christmas rush at Amazon and B&N.com. My family would also appreciate my undivided attention during the holidays. They’d appreciate royalties even more.
All that, plus a couple of prominent bloggers have asked for advance copies to review.
In the meantime, I’m still looking for a copy editor. If any of you are qualified in that regard and like what you’ve seen so far, send me an email. Ditto graphic artists…I’ve got a good idea of what I’d like to see for a cover but would prefer having a pro onboard for that.
New chapters are up, including the alternate version of Chapter 1. A lot of chapters were broken up and shortened, so most of the new content is in Ch. 5 through 7. I’m interested in seeing how crowdsourcing the draft like this works out, so don’t pull any punches. You guys are my editing team. If something doesn’t make sense or it reads clunky, let me know.
P.S. The formatting in WordPress is kind of spotty. Paragraphs that were perfectly indented in Word are all over the place once they’re posted here. And I’m not sure why the chapters are appearing out of order on the sidebar…
