Compendium

Image
Keeping myself busy while he test readers and editor do their bit by almost getting through a short book to be given free as an ebook on Amazon Books.  I now know that I probably won't be doing the picture book version, but I still like doing the drawings and illustrations, so will use these for the website gallery and for this short compendium I am writing.

I'm finding this process rewarding, as it's taking all the research and world building I did and placing it in a reference format.  Little lines about characters mentioned in the novel are fleshed out here.  Already the mythology base is serving useful for the sequel novel percolating away in my grey matter.

With each novel, I am now planning to expand on this current short tome.


Deadlines aproaching

I have the paperback's ISBN number and next week will have the Hardback's one.  So much to do before the target April 23rd publishing date.  I'm still waiting for the edited version to come back to me so I can make the final tweaks.

On Friday of last week, I gave ten copies of the unedited version of Quest for Truth to ten test readers.  8 Children and 2 adults.  The children (Aged between 10 and 14 seem to be loving it, the adults have made no comment yet.)

I'm also pushing ahead full throttle on tow short books to tie in and give away for free through Amazon Books.  One is a compendium of all the characters and places, giving a different view of the world of Figmentasia.  The second not started yet will be a short story about Queen Denmilate and her rise to power.


Very brief post...

Very busy this end with design and pre promotions.  Good news just in though...

...A friend's 13-year-old daughter is test reading Figmentasia and she's loving it. So stoked. That's my target audience right there.

Thank you Talia-Mae

It is with great excitement I can announce that the book is almost ready to go to the editor.  Oh, and my first adverts are now going out online.
