Release guesstimate and last book in series edited.

Editor says he’ll try to get “Down to Earth” finished by Feb. 1. This is the last book in the April series that is really rough and had no editing.
His goal is to have April number six done my 2/15. We’ll see… He can run optimistic.
My goal and job is to get a cover ready and a title. The cover may be a ‘holder’ because Sarah Hoyt is sick and I can’t bother her right now. She’s trying to get two book deadlines satisfied before going in for surgery.
I’m thinking “And What Goes Around” or “Steady as She Goes” Maybe something else will pop into my head.
And #6 grew to 106K words.

    Great news about the new April book. Maybe we can get it by the end of February. Although I know I will enjoy it, I would also love to see more of Lee and Gordon. I can’t wait to see Earth’s reaction when the Little Fleet arrives with their guests.

    How’s that editor holding up? Will we fall in love with April all over again tomorrow?

      Would beat editor about the head but he’s a delicate sort and I doubt it would help. I’m not his only client and I don’t want to deal with print books. If I get A cover before he edits it I’ll do an early release. (Added – cover maker, Sarah Hoyt, is also busy with two of her own books on deadline for Baen, and moving her household.)

        An early release would be great, but your stories are so good I’m willing to wait as long as I have to. I’ve read the series again over the long weekend (I’ve had a couple of snow days off from work, since I can’t get out of my driveway). Thanks for the heads up.

    Thanks for the update again. Do we have a working title?
