The past two weeks I’ve cut, rearranged, unrearranged and re-rearranged until I’ve lost 4k words, and in my growing excitement decided it was a good time to do a cover reveal.
Do I know what I’m doing? Heck no. Am I gonna do it anyway? Heck yes.
I’m dangerously close to declaring myself capital D done, and felt this was a good time to share! As a side note, before you see the good bits, I want to mention that formatting, making page numbers, and making chapter headers is infuriating. Oh, also comma splices are my number one enemy.
I bought it from this designer! (I adore their style, and will likely use them for book two as well!)
Yesterday I purchased a cover for Out of Darkness! I think it’s really pretty and perfect and whatnot. Now I just have to finish with my editing so I can use it and publish!
I’m over halfway through another read through, I printed out 2 copies (thanks, office depot) and sent one to my mom. Now she’s gonna hopefully be a helpful beta reader for me! There have been fewer and fewer changes each read through, so either I’ve become so used to my story that I can’t see what I need to fix, or (hopefully) it’s nearly capital F finished for real this time.
Of course, now I’m panicking because that means I need to think of words to go on the back of the book, finish the words inside the book, publish it, tell people I published it. Be right back, I think I’m going to faint.
Why hello there. I don’t have a new chapter to post, or an edited one. Just saying hi that I didn’t forget y’all or give up on the book. I’m still editing, though I haven’t really gotten back into a schedule yet, which I need to do.
I had a really nice premade book cover picked out, but it was sold before I had all the funds saved up, which made me sad. But it did give me a nice idea which I ‘sketched’ out. (Sketched is in quotations because I didn’t draw anything. but I made a chart. So there is that.)
