Yes, I know I seem to be taking my own sweet time here. It’s frustrating me too.
We have had some successes following a few failures. The stagefright is still strong, but I have been running down its allies and running them down like a possessed 1957 candy apple red and white Plymouth Fury.
First, The logo is done. And here it is on the interior cover page.
Pretty cool I think. So that’s part one accomplished. Part two is the map inset is complete (this was a huge setback as I accidentally saved over the base image and had to redo it all almost from scratch.) because I finally finished the big textured map. I think it looks pretty darn snazzy too. Oh… Spoilers if you look too closely.
Or are they?
My Beta Readers will know for sure and be able to see now where they all went.
Closer and closer I come. Next up, Book Cover and legal setup. (scream of fear and frustration).

One more poll after this one I think and that will determine the winner of my logo competition. The five remaining artists have really stepped up their game. I mean just wow! A little tweak here and there for the font, but I think these are it.
So which logo speaks strongest to you?

I have been hammering away with some help playing ping pong with title ideas and we have nailed it, I think. It just hops out and says “awwyeahhh”. So bubye Reimarsoga. You were fun while you lasted.
Also, we’re starting the process today of getting a logo done for Akiniwazi novels. It will be used to replace this one here.
Also… dang it I am doing it again with the “also”. I have been re-calibrating and simplifying the map so I can allow you guys to see the land better and read the locations of pertinent places! Huzzah! It’s just being pokey right now, therefore it’s reintroduction is “Soon”.
So watch this space for further updates!
