Greetings Jester King fans, and others!
Just dropping you a line to let you know what’s happening with Spellbinder – the editing project that wouldn’t end.
I am currently working with not one but two editors, AND I’ve managed to secure the help of a traditionally-published fantasy author, whose work I respect.
⊕ The first editor gave me some terrific edits and some help with POV, and will be providing a final edit/sanity check.
⊕ The second editor is currently helping me to tighten it up and pointing out where I missed something.
⊕ The author will be providing an in depth manuscript critique.
When it’s all said and done, Spellbinder will have been edited to within an inch of its life – all for the better. The story will be at a trim fighting weight, and able to give you that knockout punch you desire. I went through a lot of editing for With a Jester of Kindness (the first book in this series), but nothing this intense. In short it should be an epic book.
I’m still very excited about this story. I’m very proud of it and can hardly wait to get it into your hands. However, until it’s truly finished, you’ll have to satisfy your cravings with re-reading the first book and imagining the story behind this amazing cover.
Best wishes and better adventures,
So, in the aftermath of a successful Spellbinder Pubslush campaign, I’ve been working very hard to get the “finished” manuscript “ready” for the editors. I know, I know, what kind of lunatic writes a book, rewrites it within an inch of its life, then rewrites it on the advice of a professional beta reader, only to send it off to a pro book editor and then out again for a pro book critique? Well, you’re looking at him.
Why all the fuss? I mean, the story is there, the characters are there, the setting, the props…let’s have a curtain-up on the dog gone thing! Well as much as that would please me to get this story out of my head and into yours, I just can’t let this one go without doing everything I can to make it “just right” for you, my Goldilocks. Believe me, I’d much rather be concentrating on my next project(s). I’m ready for something new. For those of you who have read With a Jester of Kindness, especially for those who have read it more than once, I’m sure you are also ready for something new. And Spellbinder will not disappoint. I look forward to hearing back from you when you have had a chance to read it.
Stay tuned, right here (www.TheOtherWorlds.net), for more updates as the book goes into editing and then into production. I’ll do my best to keep you up to date on all that is Spellbinder.
Your humble scribe,
We are pleased to announce our first book trailer – EVER!
The With a Jester of Kindness book-trailer project has been in the works for a long time. As of late, the delays have been due to our inability to find a good, free PowerPoint converter. I guess the old adage, “you get what you pay for,” has been proven true once again. Many converters advertised
