WIP Wednesday: Lots To Tell!!
Wow, I haven't posted anything in over a week... sorry about that. I do have an excuse, however. I have been getting lots of work done!
First off, I have been editing and editing, and my hope is to have it all wrapped up within a week from now. Wish me luck. Right after that, I have to finish all of my title pages, copyright stuff, and recheck formatting.
Then I submit to Lulu and the paperback is ready to go! I'll get some ARCs and hopefully find a few book bloggers to do a review for me. ;)
Then, I have to remove the formatting from the entire thing.
"What?!?" you may ask.
Well, in order for Smashwords to publish in all ebook formats; it has to be completely undone and then reformatted to meet their specifications. Which are nothing like paperback formatting specifications.
Once that's finished up; it's time to set a release date and start self promoting like mad. There should be HOPs and interviews and contests galore, so keep a look out and tell your friends to come by, read, and follow.
Nextly, (no that's not a word but I'm all hopped up on fresh dreams and coffee) I made my own, possibly temporary, cover art. I dig it and am impressed with myself for pulling it off. (look on up to the top of the ol' page, just in case you missed it)
Also, I have finished the book trailer for The River Runes! Here it is:
(big thanks to Chris Nichols and Cycledown for letting me use their awesome song; Autumn Fades)
So those are a few of the reasons that I have been absent from the internet. Haven't Facebooked, tweeted or blogged in over a week.
I'm okay with it :)
thanks for reading,
buh bye then
