Take notice… this is why we always order a proof copy first!!
I really thought I was done editing, but as I was reading through, I found a lot more issues than I was expecting. Thankfully, most of it was minor stuff – spacing, a few random typos, duplicated words in short proximity, etc… I mean, it was probably fine as it was, but if I noticed them, I’m sure someone else would have too.
I expect that there are still things I’ve missed (and once it’s released, if you find something please let me know), but at this point I really think I’ve done just about as much as I can to it. Of course, I thought that before too.
Despite earlier predictions, I’ve been a busy little bee these last couple months. Not only was I able to complete the editing of In Plain Sight, but after considering all my various options, I have decided to go ahead and publish it myself, rather than continue to attempt a more traditional route. While there are benefits to traditional publishing, as an author, you still end up doing a lot of the same things (in terms of marketing) and so, if I have to do most of the work anyways, I’d rather not share the rewards with anyone else. While I’m getting everything ready to go – and I will announce the release date very soon – I thought I’d give you a little teaser and reveal the awesome new cover art for the book.
I am so thrilled with this. I don’t even have the words to express myself properly. I was so worried, because I knew what I wanted (in my head), but had no idea how it would translate to the finished look and the artist – it’s like they could read my mind. It’s perfect, and I hope you all love it as much as I do.
From the fiery hot lava pits in the time of the dinosaurs, to the rain-swept fields of Scotland… an epic tale spanning 65 million years. A journey to find one’s true self in time to battle a jealous and vengeful God, who finds joy in the misery of others. A tale of true companionship, overcoming seemingly insurmountable odds, and a cautionary reminder as well that some things are inevitable, no matter how much we may wish otherwise.
Humorous and compelling, an action packed story that just sucks you right in, and before you know it, it’s 2am and you should have been asleep hours ago. 🙂
Great debut from first time novelist Chris Dews. It’s billed as “book one” of a trilogy – can’t wait to read the rest of them!!
