I’ve been working on editing my next book I’m going to try to publish. I’m going to try and publish this one in print, as well as epublish it on the Kindle and the Nook. This story was written quite recent opposed to my last published work “City of Town”. Originally I wrote this next book as a creative writing sample for my grad programs. I lengthened it into a novella, and I think it’s good enough to send it out to some publishers.
Going through the manuscript again is taking quite a while. I usually can finish edits like this in a day or two when on the job with clients through Tomework, but editing my own stuff takes longer. There’s less urgency prompting me to get it done, and by the time I finish editing other people’s manuscripts, it’s hard to pick mine up at the end of a long day of edits.
Here’s the book cover that I made for it though.
This is the before shot…
And the after shot…
I worked it up in Photoshop.
I should make some time to work on it though. Being busy is an overused excuse I hear all too often. I need to start sending it out to publishers as soon as possible since the publishing process can take months before my book ends up on store shelves.
