Weekly update

Editing is taking much longer than I expected. It's harder to make time for it, and it's kind of boring too. And this book is much longer than the first one was. But I want to make sure I get it right, so I will take my time.

Weekly update

The first draft of Love and Braces is finished - but that still means a lot of work to do on it. It's about twice as long as Retainer Girl! And yet I still feel I only cover a small part of everything I wanted to. So there's still lots of material for the next Dr.Wrighting books!

I'm a bit surprised and disappointed that there haven't been more sales of Retainer Girl. I was sort of hoping for 100 copies sold by the end of the year but 50 is more realistic. It is hard getting the word out and connecting with the right audience. And I find it hard to make the time...

Meanwhile we began a next generation of orthodontic adventures in person at the Aimes household. Betty first, and unfortunately the novelty of palatal expansion has worn off very quickly. We're managing, but just. Now I'm even more nervous about Allie who is due for braces soon. Betty has the better attitude, but her RPE already challenged that. And I wonder how dealing with this will affect my writing. At least it should give me even more material!
