So I haven't really started editing it yet. But I still wound up doing something this week. I rewrote the first chapter. Totally redid it. What is it about first chapters and me? I wound up totally rewriting the first chapter of Sharky and the Jewel not once, but twice. Having said that, I think the new chapter gets the book off to a great start. The reason I had to rewrite it, was that the premise of what upsets Eric changed over the course of the book.

I have also been in contact with illustrator Daniel Vogel, and we chatted about a concept for the cover art for Order of the Crystal Lion. Yesterday, he sent me a conceptual sketch of the cover. I really liked it. I think the cover is going to turn out really great.
As you can see, it wound up being quite a busy week after all. Now I can get down to the business of editing the book. All told, I'm still on track to release the book by late February or early March. I'll update you on how everything is going next week!
