I’m going to read through my first proof of UNDER. Then I can make any changes needed and upload the story to Amazon. I really hope I can do this before July. Then I can work on the ebook.
Follow thirteen-year-old Boyd Under and his older sister Maggie as they enter their grandfather’s secret underwater city. Located at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean, Sans Terra is a technological marvel. Within its many domes, citizens enjoy a surprisingly normal city life of parks, shops, restaurants, schools, and apartments. However, life goes from typical to tense when several people inexplicably fall ill. It is up to Boyd, Maggie, and friends to uncover the source of the illness. Will solving this mystery unite friends or turn friends into enemies? Dive in to find out.
Thank you again Jake at J Caleb Design for your unreal cover!
My wife, Ingrid, and I have been working on the summary for UNDER. Dustin has already read through the summary twice. Now for two more friends will read it over. As soon as the summary is ready I can send it to Jake at J Caleb Design to be placed on the back of the book cover. Then I can order a proof and read through. If all goes well, which it never does, I might have the print book uploaded before my school years ends!
Formatting done for my print version of UNDER! Map complete! Now to finish the acknowledgment, summary for the back cover, and make a proof. I wish each step didn’t take days to accomplish and I could fast-forward to end where I have the book available on Amazon.
Here’s a look at the cover for UNDER! Thanks again to Jake at J Caleb Design for his outstanding skills and service!
I’ve received the final edits from my friend Dustin. Thank you Dustin for you hard work and encouragement! I couldn’t be a self-published author without your support! I’ve completed 90% of Dustin’s edits and comments. I have the cover design already made thanks to Jake at J Caleb Design. On to formatting, my least favorite part.
Dustin has already edited half of UNDER and as usual his feedback and comments have allowed me to make this book even better! This was the second story I wrote after VERVE STONE way back in 2009. To see the light at the end of a long tunnel is very exciting, but to get there I do have to format the book for ebook and print-on-demand, which is my least favorite part of self-publishing by far. At least I already have an amazing cover and map from Jake at www.jcalebdesign.com!!!
