While my wife was off at Arisia this past afternoon, selling all the Storied Threads things, I hunkered in to work on the latest round of revisions for Action Figures – Issue Four: Cruel Summer. I have one test-reader still unheard from, so it’s not ready for editing yet, but my hope is to have it off for its final proofread by next weekend at the latest.
I also got to work on draft one of Action Figures – Issue Five: Team-Ups, because I’m obsessive like that.
The other news from the weekend was quite the ego boost. Some time ago my father-in-law, who works at the Northfield Middle/High School in Northfield, Vermont loaned a copy of Action Figures – Issue One: Secret Origins to a student, who, I’m told, devoured it. The young man in fact loved it so much, he asked the school librarian to include it in the school catalog. That led to a donation request, which I happily honored, so now the first three books in the series are available in the school library for all to read!
Needless to say, I’m flattered and honored that this came about. It may not sound like a huge deal, but it means a lot to me, that someone loved the books so much that he wanted to share them with his friends and classmates. These are the kind of shows of support that help keep me, and other indie authors, going, so thank you!
