Close call with DTI galleys

Whew, I was getting worried there for a bit.  I realized that the scheduled deadline for turning in the 1st-pass galley proofs (the pages showing the text of the novel as it will be formatted in the final novel, which are sent to the author for proofreading) was coming up this Friday (i.e. today), and I hadn’t gotten them yet.  And there are a half-dozen or so fixes I want to make, errors and conceptual problems I didn’t catch until I was putting together my website annotations for the book.  Luckily, I heard from my editor, who explained that things have been delayed unavoidably.  I should be getting the galleys very soon — probably today — and I’ll have nearly two weeks to proofread them.  So I’ll be able to clear up those glitches.  And the novel is still on track for its planned late-April release.

In other good writing-related news, I got a new magazine article gig the other day, and I got a decent-sized royalty check this week (keeping in mind that royalties for books generally aren’t very large).

Still not making much progress on my short story, though.  I made a point of sitting down and writing a scene the other day, but once I was done with it, I realized the scene added nothing to the story and should be cut.  Sigh.  Well, maybe I’ll find a use for it in a later story.
