Tales of loathsome tyrants and prophesied saviors aren't nearly so appealing when you are a royal bastard with a prophecy hanging over your head.

News 7.02


The proof copy for A Fistful of Fire is in my lap as I type this. I've already found a typesetting-induced typo, though, so I'll be modifying that, and after seeing this, I want to make a wraparound cover. I'm not sure I like what avoiding widows & orphans has done to some of the line spacing, either.

I have my bright pink pen ready to mark up the book when I have a few hours to devote to it. Any typos I find while doing that (because there's always another typo) will likewise be fixed in the e-book version.

I think CreateSpace will require me to go through another proof copy round before I can approve a new version. Still, this 5.25x8" copy is a comfortable size. The binding is nice, too.

So. I'm a step closer to having A Fistful of Fire ready for print release.

Also, The Great INDIE Summer Giveaway starts tomorrow (6/15/11)! Dozens of indie authors are participating, and I'll even be doing a guest post. I've seen a list of the books to be offered, and if I weren't one of the giveaway authors, I'd try to win some of those titles, myself!

Check it out for a chance to win some of the many titles being offered—including an e-book copy each of A Fistful of Fire and of Destiny's Kiss, my urban fantasy novel to be released the first week of July!
