Onto the New Adventure

The new book is pro­gress­ing nice­ly. I have fin­ished two chap­ters so far and slow­ly mov­ing onto the third. I’m still ques­tion­ing my san­i­ty about mak­ing this a tril­o­gy though. Maybe I’ll return to the orig­i­nal idea of it being a sin­gle large book. Any­way, again this is going to be a free write, with no sol­id out­lines or any­thing. Don’t tell me about plot points or a cli­max or what­ev­er. I don’t want to know, or I will nev­er get there. 

Book One got its first round of beta reads. Or, should I say, alpha reads. These are dif­fer­ent, I shouldn’t have called them betas. But I call every pre-edi­tor read­er a beta. My two usu­al betas were doing fine, sug­gest­ing me what could be improved, but the new ones I man­aged to find sucked might­i­ly. The next time I will try a new beta read­er, it’s going to be a paid one (or two), and I’m going to make sure the match will be ide­al or near ide­al. Thus no one would have to be frus­trat­ed and dis­ap­point­ed. And more impor­tant­ly, no time wast­ed.

Also, since I’ll be hav­ing funds for my projects this year and beyond (I got a new job!), I’ll be look­ing for cov­er illus­tra­tors. This means my books will be get­ting some neat cov­ers. I just need to fig­ure out what I want on those cov­ers.

I’m still think­ing of whether I should par­tic­i­pate in A-Z blog­ging chal­lenge this year. I haven’t got my theme yet and not that I’m par­tic­u­lar­ly inter­est­ed in blog­ging late­ly. So the fun chal­lenge could eas­i­ly turn into a bloody chal­lenge to pro­duce any sort of con­tent. I wouldn’t want to inflict that on myself, though I would like to have new blog­ging friends. I still have no desire to fin­ish my world­build­ing arti­cle series, though I’m get­ting a lot of requests about them. I’d rather pour those words into books.

Still, this is going to be a promis­ing year. 🙂
