The cover artist for Age of the Phoenix sent me the most awesome proof of Book 1 the other day (Thursday I believe). It is phenomenal. I spent a long time Thursday and Friday evening adding fonts and playing around with positioning. The fonts package I purchased from Adobe looks great on this test cover. I am not showing it, of course, for obvious reasons. 🙂 I am excited to see what her next proof will look like.
I have also polished Chapter 9. I know I say it all the time, but, editing/rewriting forward in a book is maddening! I love it, but it sure takes time away from the usual more important real life stuff. I am still very excited and invested in this project and will see it through. I have been working on this book series since November 20, 2002. It’s kind of too late to stop now!
I am hoping to get some concept art too if I can scrape together some $$$. I would like to spruce up the website and Facebook page. I have also figured out how to format and put the interior and cover together so that when it is done, officially, I can upload it right away and click submit, so to speak. I have decided to publish it in print form first via Createspace (an Amazon company). This is because I would like my map in the interior and publishing straight to ebook doesn’t allow that. I would rather have the print book fitted and prepared properly and made into an ebook.
Back to editing! 🙂
