Before I hit the topic of this post, I want to thank everyone who has commented on the new soundtrack for the latest episode of the Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary World Tour! The music received a ton of good reviews, all of which made the effort worthwhile from my point of view. Much obliged!
With the music done (for the moment), I’m going back to my novel, Tapper. I start working with a “beta team” in The Ubergroup on Scribophile this week. Put simply, a beta team is where several authors put their entire works up for critique. Each author has a week in the spotlight, where everyone else in the team critiques that work from start to finish. It’s a lot of effort, but it’s worth it due to the all-at-once nature of the critiques received (versus the chapter-a-week model of a normal Ubergroup team). Tapper will get its weeks (yes, plural) starting with the week leading into Christmas (beginning Monday, December 19th). There’ll be a break in my part of the cycle from the 22nd through the 26th, at which point the group will resume critique and discussion through New Year’s Eve. This is possible since we’ve only got four people on a team geared for a six-week period.
I’ve done a lot of revisions since my last beta cycle, which took place almost a year ago. This one should be very interesting. 😉
