Hey everyone! I know I’ve been a bit quiet this week. Things have been busy, as usual. I figured I better take a moment to drop in and let you know what I’ve been up to.
I know I’ve been slacking off on the promised print version of E, and some people have been asking for that. So, I’ve been working on the cover to try to sort out the issues with it printing darker than I like. This is a slightly experimental process, so it may be a while yet. But it is on the way. Promise. I’ve also done some improvements to the spine, thanks to my pal Nicola’s great, insightful advice. (Her book, Chasing Freedom, has an awesome spine, so I felt I really needed to listen to her on this one!) I really like the way it has come out, so now, if it just prints right…. We’ll see.
I’ve had some ideas for changes to TMT, so I think I know what I want to concentrate on when I do start editing. I haven’t touched it yet (except for one sentence I just had to change). I’ve made some notes. I had an epiphany or two. And I think I have settled on a title. I want to give the title a while in the back of my brain and see if I still like it later, though. In the meantime, we’ll still call it TMT.
I’ve also been mulling over cover ideas, and to be honest, I’m a bit stumped. There are a lot of elements and ideas that I would like to include, but honestly, I have not found anything that just clicks with me yet. I also want to keep some consistency between the books in the series, so I am considering how to keep some of the things from the cover of E. I’m betting there will still be a lily.
…And, I’ve started going through the first book in my FE fantasy series, so I can really think about getting it ready for publication. Picture this: me + machete + book + evil grin. Yep, that’s about right. It ain’t pretty.
And of course, we’re all excited over at Rock the Book as the site is getting off the ground and taking off. We’ve had lots of traffic, and we’re all having fun getting to really be part of the Indie community.
I’m probably forgetting plenty, but as you can see, I’ve had my hands full.
I hope everything is going great for all you amazing readers out there, and you’re all keeping cool and enjoying the summer!
What are you up to these days?
