I do hope your week is going well.
I just wanted to update you on what I’ve been doing the last four or five days. Yes, I have been writing. I’m working on the last chapter(s) for The ABC’s of Death. I want to get it right for all my loyal readers. Can you believe it’s been going on for two months now?! You have stuck with me through it all, I appreciate it more than you know. ❤
I have also begun editing the first story in the DeeDee Watson, PI series (yes it is going to be a series!), ‘The Man in the Fedora’. I’m trying to get it ready for publishing. My goal is to publish both stories at the same time. I’m pushing for a September or early October date. Yes, it’s going to be a lot of hard work, but so worth it!
Be prepared for a surprise in a few weeks. That’s when I hope to reveal the new title and book cover for the Fedora story. You heard correctly! I am re-titling it AND doing a new book cover! Exciting times ahead, my friends!
I will also let you know that I will have a new title and book cover for The ABC’s of Death when I publish. I want it to fit in the new series look that I have in my head. I already have a rough outline of the third book in the series! More on that later.
A few other things, at the end of the ABC’s of Death, I will have a short survey for all of you who are reading it. It will help me tremendously when it comes time to edit if you fill out the survey for me. I’ll post more on that later, also.
I’m also in the market for Beta Readers. A beta reader is a person who will read the book and look for any inconsistencies, plot holes or just plain mistakes in the story for me. I look at this story a million times and I still miss things. Beta readers are an important part of pre-publishing. The story you will read will be the second-to-last editing before publishing.
As a reward and since I’m broke. I am offering my Beta Readers a free copy of my book once it’s published! I am also offering a dedication to you on my dedication page inside the book! If you are interested in being a Beta Reader for me, send me an email via my contact page! It won’t be for a few months yet, so I will be posting reminders now and then. Any offers of help are deeply appreciated!
Well, that’s it for now. I need to get my butt back to Dee, Tee, Fedora and the others!
