What have I been up to?
Well that is an interesting discussion. You may not think so, but all authors are self righteous asshole’s who think everyone should read their work. While else would you want to become a writer, than have millions of strangers praise you for the finery of your written work.
But seeing as this is a blog and you have become used to my ramblings, I may as well tell you what I have been up to.
First and foremost, I have received my latest cover for my Fallen Angels series. I will post what it looks like sometime next week or the week after.
It looks amazing!!!!
The best one yet, and I can’t thank Glendon from Street Light Graphics enough. Something weird happened regarding that cover.
I didn’t tell him what happened in the story, I didn’t give him any clues about the book. Just told him to let his imagination run wild and what he came out with was as close to perfection as you can get.
It is almost like the cover was made for the story. I know some writers see their cover first and work the story around it. But this was just done by pure luck. Nothing else, nothing more.
So that is now done and finished.
Secondly, I am going through the editors copy of the latest book in the Fallen Angels series. This may be the final one. I really don’t know how well it will turn out. Because I have done zero marketing for it, I can’t really gauge it’s success.
When I market it later this year, I will be able to tell if it is something that I want to continue writing or not.
If the demand is high for it I may do.
If it dies a horrible death then at least I tried.
It was a fun first series to sink my teeth into, to learn the basics of my craft.
What more can I ask for.
The final and last thing that I am really proud of, is that I have finished my first ever sci-fi book. It was the quickest thing I have ever written and If I am honest, was the most fun. I tried to write to market and make it as fast pace as I could. But some of me got in the book which isn’t always a bad thing.
Now I have to go back and see what I should leave in and what I should take out.
It came out at 67K. That number may go up or down, we shall see.
67K is about right for the type of genre that it is in, but right now like I said it is just a mould of clay the real process begins now.
And…..that’s about it really.
I haven’t posted on here much as all my brain and willpower, are being used to pump out more and more fiction words. So now that am taking a little break, I can give this blog some love and attention.
I say that. But theres editing to be done. Marketing to be done. Dates to be scheduled.
Guess the break will have to wait.
Till next time.
