Dragon continues to progress and I've reached the 75% mark. It's pretty obvious that I've missed my target of releasing in 2014. I'm pretty confident that the manuscript will be ready for editing come January. This means a release as potentially early as February, assuming that the editorial recommendations aren't too expansive.
Calling All Reviewers! Kobo Ramping Up New Review System!
Kobo Books is revamping their online ebook store and bringing back their far-too-long absent reader review system. Before they press the "Go!" button, they are giving authors an opportunity to preload reviews for when they start it up.
So I'm calling on everyone who has read and enjoyed my book to please say it out loud and post your review on this page. Every little bit helps and I'd like to hit the ground running when they start up the new site.
A New Cover For Nobody!
They say you can't judge a book by its cover, but we all do that anyway. I've been well aware for a while that the cover for Nobody falls short of really conveying to the prospective reader of what's inside the cover. The current cover does reflect a theme in the story presented by the whole series, but not what is going on inside this book. I've always felt that the cover should reflect a scene in the story.
So here is the beta-version of the new cover!
Another problem with the old cover is it was also too low resolution to be used for print. (Hint! Hint!)
Aggadeh Chronicles Book 2: Dragon Drawing Closer…
The manuscript for Dragon is getting closer to completion. Thirty days behind schedule, but I am still confident it will be on time for the late summer release. I'm also sending out queries to artists about doing the cover art. If you know anyone who's looking to be the next Michael Whelan, I'd like to talk with them. Use the "Contact" button to the left and send me a message. (note: there's no way I could actually afford Michael Whelan's work, which is why I'm looking for new illustrators looking for an opportunity.)
