Temporary cover — real cover to be revealed in the next few days…
“Rise” (the second book in the Ethereal Vision series) came back from my editor yesterday. I’m glad to say she did an absolutely stellar job (Claudette Cruz, ‘the editing sweetheart’). I’m going through the corrections now, so I’m looking at a release in early / mid-August.
I know there have been some delays, and I greatly appreciate your patience.
Thanks so much for waiting!
See you soon 😉
Hey everyone. Thanks again for all of your reviews, comments, likes and ratings. Very kind of you. The second book is pretty much finished. It’s going to a copy editor on June 25. That will take a few weeks, and then I’ll be designing the cover with some great artists — something I’m really looking forward to. So I’m looking at a late July release now.
Thanks for sticking around. 🙂
124,424 words at the moment. Needs a little more polishing, but we’re looking good for a May release, and it will be dedicated to my late brother John. Thanks for your support everyone. 🙂
Hey guys. So you’ve probably figured out by now that I’m not huge on giving updates and doing the social media thing. I’m more focussed on writing! But I thought it was essential to give you a bell and let you know how things are progressing. Here’s what’s been happening:
Near the beginning of 2015, I had almost completed two separate first drafts of book 2. Neither of them were good enough, so I stopped for a while. Eventually, I found myself in South east Asia, thinking I was going there to teach English. Turned out, the best thing I got from that trip were the ideas for the second book. I’ve known how the story will end pretty much since the beginning, but I wasn’t totally sure exactly what came next — that’s what that trip gave me.
So I came home, began writing, and wrote it as a script first. That took all of six days. Then I started on the first draft, and you’ll be glad to know the first draft is FINISHED! 🙂 I’m on the first read through, after which I will have a printed copy, and I will post shots of it from all angles for you to glare at 🙂 (if you so desire ;).
After that comes proofreading, cover design and formatting, which altogether will probably take a month. So I’m looking at a May release. (Hope that’s good enough for you guys — I know you’ve been waiting quite a while to find out what happens to Jane and Max).
Thanks so much to everyone who posted a review or a comment or anything of that nature. Every single gesture like that makes A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE.
To Jane and Max! 🙂
