I had a very productive weekend with regards to my book. I was able to get the text formatted for Amazon’s CreateSpace, as well as the Kindle and the Nook. My wife made a great-looking cover; she’s really amazing at that kind of thing. I also submitted the interior and cover to CreateSpace, and got the approval this morning. I’ve ordered a proof copy, and once that comes, I’ll go over it and look for any spelling or other mistakes. After I’m happy with it, it will be ready to sell. I’m thinking possibly by the end of next week.
I also came up with an overall plotline for my next book. It’s going to take place in the same setting as my first book, but take place over a longer time period. It will have a new main character, but it is one that had a small role in my first book. I’m planning on making it much longer as well; this one turned out kind of short, and I don’t want another short book. I’m aiming for at least 120,000 words; we’ll see how I do.
Finally, I started working on a separate page for my book that will go up on this blog once I have “for sale” links to the various places. It will feature the cover, and a link to download a sample PDF of the first few chapters. Look for that probably late September.
