I know one or two of you have been waiting patiently for news on Book 2 and what it’s name is going to be, when’s the cover reveal and all that. Well… it’s on the quivering cusp now. So load up your squee cannons and get ready to fire.
1. Monday morning, the Beta Read ends. I’ve gotten some good feedback. The story is generally recieved better than ALRDW, and some VERY eagle eyed picky readers found a ton of errors. To which I thank them, profusely. I’m not a good technical writer, but I seem to have a knack for emotion, story and plot.
2. Book 1 is getting a Re-issue!
Yep. I’m going to be re-issuing Book 1 “A Light Rises in a Dark World”. Why? It needs to be brought into line with what the series is going to be moving forward. I’ve simplified the language, so the number of hard words has been reduced, and it will be re-titled. The series name is going to be “Akiniwazisaga” going forward. The subtitle will become “A Light Rises in a Dark World”.
3. The Subtitle is down to a final two candidates.
I will hope to do a reveal of that in the next couple weeks along with the second cover. Yes, I’m hoping by middle November, I will be able to reveal it, and it’s new titling.
I know I’ve been absent a lot, but life is really in a lot of turmoil right now, so I’m doing all I can to re-edit book 1, get book 2 ready and then deal with my job (yes I still have one cuz book sales don’t pay for it yet. Maybe after book 4 comes out… oh the dream) and other issues are conspiring to drive me insane.
So that’s what’s coming up.
The goal is still a December release and barring a disaster, we should make it.
