Progress on this short story prequel to The Wizard of Suomen: my cover designer has begun work on the cover, and I have gotten feedback from my beta readers and my editor, so I can get to work on the next round of editing. A few steps closer!
I can’t give it a specific release date just yet, but I’m hoping it will be soon.
Now that I’ve made it look a little prettier, I’ll just let everyone know that you can like my Page on Facebook over here, if you are so inclined.
Also, I’m over on Goodreads for those who prefer that.
A couple exciting announcements coming soon!
It is hard to express how amazing it is to hold a print copy of your book in your hands.
Cover by Luke Brickley, and interior formatting by Larks & Katydids.
As this post might suggest, print copies of The Wizard of Suomen will be available through Amazon in a few days! When it is, I’ll also run a sale on the ebook for anyone who’d like to give it a try for a bit less than $12.99.
Working through CreateSpace was a pretty easy process! I was careful to check all of their specs beforehand, so I didn’t have any trouble with their review process, and the proof (pictured above) looked great.
I will (hopefully) be attending some events local to me over the next few months, and will have print copies available at those as well. More posts about those as they come up!
(Seriously, though, this still gives me shivers even days later. ^_^;; )
All right, I have officially sent a completed draft of Luule Ehari’s backstory, The Witch, off to my first beta readers! It’s a short story (just shy of 8,000 words), so I’m hoping that the editing process won’t take too long. There may be a bit of a delay in getting cover art together, but with luck I’ll have it out in the next few months!
If you have not met Luule and discovered how awesome she is yet, check out The Wizard of Suomen. 😉 I’m glad she decided to give me more of her story! I’ll put up a snippet once I get it back from my betas.
Next on the list is to finish up Alexei’s backstory!
Before today is quite over, I do want to wish my mother a Happy Mother’s Day one more time! She has given me so much support for my writing; not just encouragement, but also her own considerable English skills, as she read several drafts of The Wizard of Suomen to find problems for me. It is definitely a better story because of her help.
So, Happy Mother’s Day, and thank you so much for your help, Mom. ❤
While I don’t post as often as I’d like to anyway, I’m going to be especially busy for the next couple of months (mostly with fun things, fortunately!), so posts may be even leaner than usual. But I’ll still try and get in a couple of reviews and some writing updates.
Things are getting nice and green outside, though, and it is finally spring! It’s nice to listen to the birds and the frogs calling while I work on things.
I will say that print copies of The Wizard of Suomen will be available soon! The ebook is $2.99 on Amazon, if you are looking for a good sword-and-sorcery.
I have now officially written 116 words of Book Two of the Land of Winds series!
…yeah, no one hold your breath. XD But still, a start is a start. While I know the basic plot of this one, I’m excited to figure out exactly what happens! Title is still very TBD. ^_^;;
