The Week in Review

The past week has been very work intensive with proofing the ARC for Highway Thirteen to Manhattan. It’s amazing what you catch on the thirtieth read when it’s actually laid out like a book. I’m working on the ebook with Rik from Wild Seas Formatting. He’s fast, he’s responsive, and I love working with him.

I’ve hired two companies to organize the cover reveal, Bewitching Book Tours and Sage’s Book Tours. It will be revealed on July 11.

I’m figuring out the author swag and am constantly passing things by my trusted team: my editor, my crit partner, parents, a close friend, and the most amazing street team, The Cheeseheads. It’s so helpful to have that many sets of eyes go over stuff. Thank you so much to everyone who responds to my emails and posts. I couldn’t do what I do without your awesome feedback!

Hope you are having a great week. What are some of the highlights from your week?

    Good to see you’re pushing forward. Looking forward to the sequel.
    I’m creating my own book cover for the first time. It’s tedious but sort of fun, too.

    • Thanks. Some days the headway is minimal but always onward!
      Wow, that’s impressive. I usually hire a cover designer because I have no skills in that arena. Same with the formatting. But I know other indie authors who do it all and create really cool covers and internal formatting. 🙂

  2. Thirtieth read!!! Wow, that’s a lot of readings, but still, great progress, looking forward to the cover reveal 🙂

    • I am just finishing 3 rereads in 9 days. I feel like I’ve been living in the pages of this book. I go through it so many times with each round of revisions. I can almost tell you what happens in each chapter from memory. 😉 Me too. So excited for that! Can’t wait to hear what you think!
