Annette, the map is current to the publication of Initiate's Trial...I update at each volume. I MAY have that other painting done by August - shall see what the schedule bears.

PurplePenny - thanks for posting the interview link - they'd asked to check for typos; didn't know it was final, yet. GOOD!

I wonder if we'll ever see a Seventh Age map?

I joined the chat in the middle and don't understand how the chapter sets and editing work.
can you please explain it to me?

I go through it in order and mark all the changes.

Then I back check - take the marked pages and look them over in backwards order (breaks up the story so I see repeat words, awkward phrases, see the back end first, so 'finish' fatigue doesn't blunt my eye)

Then I key in the changes.

Then spell check.

Then the finished chapter goes to proofing.

When all the sets are through proofing, I look over the Whole Book (fast pass, last pass) just to look for typos, gaffes (2 days, tops) THEN IT GOES IN.

I now have 35 pages to back check (fast, one/two days) and I'm half keyed in 14 main set (20 pages of 38).

that is the current status.

I EXPECT to turn in within 7 days, give or take a day or two.

The FINISH PARTY starts when I turn in.

Forgot: 14 set is THE END. So this is the last bit.

Hunter: 7th Age Map!!! ::Smack::

Make this a mega best seller, pal, and I'll do you one AFTER Song of the Mysteries is released. (you want all the spoilers, Ever, in one sheet???)
