Back to work on The Back of Beyond!!! So excited to return to my first love, The Legend of Spoon. Over the past two months I’ve been stewing about the ending of my first draft of Back of Beyond. And I’ve come to the decision to add extra senses to make it the best Back of Beyond ending possible. I just hope it works.
I just finished revising Under and have sent it over to my friend for a read through. The story has improved so, so much thanks to Robin Pulema‘s feedback and suggestions. I plan to have it read through at least two more times by friends. But I can’t wait to self publish it!
Attempting to finalize my Under cover for self publishing. The wonderful thing about working with Jake at J Caleb Design is he’s given me so many great options I’m having a hard time deciding. Which is a superb problem to be faced with!
After finishing The Missing Crimorie, which I loved, I feel very motivated to finish revising Under, something I thought I’d finish over the summer. After all the pull to return to work on Back of Beyond is growing.
I am busy reading through Robin Puelma’s book The Missing Crimoire, which she plans to self publish. This is the second time I’ve gotten to read this story. The first being many years ago. I’m about a third of the way through and I must say it has only gotten better! I can’t wait for everyone else to get a chance to meet Luke!!!
I am also working hard, per the same fantastic feedback from Robin Puelma, to make the dilemma in Under very clear from page one. When I started writing Under many years ago I was such a new writer that I had no idea what dilemma was. Thanks to The 90-Day Rewrite by Alan Watt, a book Robin highly recommended, I now know better. But of course knowing something doesn’t make it easy, which is why I will be paying close attention to this issue as I revise Under.
