Wow, by the time that this goes live another three weeks will have gone by since the last blog post. I’m putting off my Dropbox/Sugarsynch post because frankly most of you probably couldn’t care less and I haven’t had time to write it. I will eventually put a brief bit up there though because I a few of you might read it and decide it was useful information after all. If I can save a couple people from a meltdown when their hard drives fail, that’s a worthwhile thing to do.
Since the last time we talked, Katie came up with a new cover for Frozen Prospects.
The original e-book cover we had done isn’t high enough resolution to do a print edition and I wasn’t able to get a response back from the original cover artist, so Katie whipped (because it’s that easy right ;) up another version, which I actually like better. I think it’s a bit harder and more realistic than the original one and I like the sword better :) You’re getting the full print, wraparound cover here which reminds me that I need to find a few hours to finish up the work still outstanding for the Frozen Prospects and Thawed Fortunes print editions. I had to start back over for a few different reasons and they just haven’t been as high of a priority as getting new material written and edited. I’m still hoping that I can squeeze them in before Christmas, but I expect that you’ll all have your shopping done by the time they finally go live.
The audio book version of Broken is now live:
Every time I write a bit of dialogue for Dominic I now hear the narrator, Sandy Rustin’s, rendition of Dom's accent!
That’s the last of the audio books that are currently on the to-do list. I’m sorry for those of you that really love audio books. They are a huge investment compared to the return so far. As they continue to sell I’ll happily revisit the decision :).
Pick it up from:
Frozen Prospects Push:
A few weeks ago I contacted a bunch of sites that feature free books. The hope was that it would bring in some more readers and help make the release of Guadel Chronicles #3 even more of an event. It’s worked, not as well as I’d hoped, but every little bit helps. Those of you who haven’t tried The Guadel Chronicles out ought to go download it and see what you think.
The Next Alec and Adri Book:
As of Oct 18th when I’m revising this, I’ve completed just under 94,000 words over the course of 17 working days (20 calender days) and the rough draft is officially done! I have to say that I’m very pleased with how this one came together. There are a lot of ‘breadcrumbs’ scattered throughout this one as far as important things, people, and events that will be happening later on in the Reflections universe. I’d like to go on and on right here but I’d better stop. Let’s just say that I really, really hope that this one blows everyone away. We’ll see what Katie says, but I think that my writing has noticeably improved with this one and Guadel #3.
As always, thanks for all you each do to help spread the word!
