The synopsis for book one of Little Dog, Son of a Bitch, is about done in both long form (writing document) and short form (selling document). bravado111 and I made good use of our hang time together this weekend for some story conferencing, as well some parallel play writing time.
I also churned out first draft one-sheets for books two and three, just to show series direction as part of the sales proposal package. They're currently entitled Whelp, I Need Somebody and Littermates. After a few final touches today, the package is off our desks for a while, at least until our agents give us feedback on the synopsis and other materials.
The current production plan is for bravado111 to write the first draft in May and/or June, and me to do the initial major revision pass in June and/or July. This schedule should survive even if I have to go back into cancer treatment, which means we'll have the book to first readers by the end of July, if not a bit earlier. I am happy to jam this in around Sunspin, simply to get it going.
