We’re about due for an update, aren’t we?
It’s nice that I’m back in the rhythm of publishing daily here on my personal blog, but this is, after all, about documenting the journey. Not that this isn’t what I’ve been doing, but the content has certainly had a more outward looking esthetic to it than before. For the most part, this will probably continue to be the case.
Either way, a personal update is in order, because I’ve been making some massive progress in a couple of domains.
The Renegade Musician Manuscript is… Complete?
As of today, I’ve completed editing the bulk of The Renegade Musician book, and it’s coming in at nearly 70,000 words! The only thing left to do now is to edit Appendix II, and the manuscript will be considered complete.
Of course, there is more to do before we can publish. All the content needs to be dropped into a 6×9 US Trade template, and then we need to add the boring legal stuff, table of contents, acknowledgements, next steps, and so on.
In the meantime, though, there is going to be a bit of a publicity push, and we do expect to see some blurbs and interviews out there soon.
The project has taken a little longer than expected but I obviously underestimated how much I would have to do in November. As of today, it feels like I’m starting to get back on track with everything (and I emphasize starting, because my email is still piling up…).
New Podcast Incoming!
I began discussing the idea for a new podcast with my team a couple of weeks ago. The wheels are in motion, and we’ve already created the podcast artwork. We’ve also settled on a podcast theme, and I’ve generated over 40 episode ideas.
If all goes according to plan, the first episode will come out this week. But there are a lot of moving pieces we’re trying to work out.
Also, this is the first time I’ve made the call in a while, but we are looking for more team members to support the project! So, if you’re interested in contributing:
- Graphic design
- Social media
- Audio editing
- Something else
Be sure to reach out to me so we can get into conversation!
