I'm preparing for the release of my third baby in The House of BeJeweled series. Book 3 entitled, BeJeweled: A Beautiful Blend is gone off to the editor, and the book cover designer has the concept.
It's almost like Christmas time or waiting for a new baby to be born whenever I go through this process. I can't wait to see the concept pulled together in the first draft, the second one and the final one. Usually, we don't have to go past the second draft.
Then comes the hard part...editing. Going back through all of the edits that are suggested is extremely time-consuming. A necessary evil.
All of the good, hard work now begins as I move on to formatting, finalizing the marketing pieces that have not been employed, and the actual launch. I made it through #nanowrimo and ended with 75,072 words, but I'm not finished. That project has been placed on hold temporarily, as I prepare for the release of BeJeweled: A Beautiful Blend.
In the meantime, if you haven't read the series, you can begin with book one, BeJeweled: The Flight of an Angel, which is currently on sale for $0.99. Click the titles to download.
Or you can catch up on book two, if you have finished the first one. BeJeweled: What A Tangled Web We Weave is available for your holiday pleasure.
Well, I gotta get back to cooking. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving on tomorrow. Be blessed.
