So, Signum is Revised

After what feels like a lifetime of revision, I am overly happy to announce that Tale of Signum has completed its final steps of publication, at least so far as the manuscript is concerned. Next comes the cover art, which is also almost complete, so we’re getting close to the big day! I will be looking for other authors who would like to help each other advertise books, so if you count in that category either let me know in the comments section below, or tweet me at @Aka_Hinotae on Twitter!

Hiding From Revision

Okay. Over eight years ago I decided to become a writer. I was obviously young and had a lot to learn back then, but I thought writing would be an easy job. Not easy. But I love it, and over the years I’ve gotten to an average of 4,000 words a day if I push it. I can write. I like that part.

What I don’t like is revision. Some of you who have read my articles might know that I don’t cut out entire scenes and quotes just for the sake of slimming down the book, but I do check for errors and where clarification is needed. But I hate revision. It drives me crazy. In fact, I don’t think there’s a strong enough word to tell you how I feel about the jogging-through-wet-tar feeling I get from sitting down to ‘revise’. But you can’t publish a book until you make sure at least most of the errors are weeded out. So, it remains to me one of life’s little evils.

Which I try and hide from every chance I get.
