10 Jun Ravens Crowing, We Stand Beneath The Flaming Tide
Been a while since my last update, and there’s a lot to report.
The first round of editing has been completed!
Along with the text edits, I’ve made a considerable amount of changes. Perhaps the biggest of which is that I increased the physical size of the book.
The new size does a better job of showcasing the art and allowed me to increase the font size to make the text a bit more readable.
The second change is the page count. The book now comes in at 100 pages and unless something drastic happens in the second round of edits, I’d say that page count is locked.
Other changes are related to formatting within the book, adjusting art for the new page size, changing fonts and removing some page elements that were getting in the way of presenting the story clearly.
I think all of this has made the book 100% better and I’m really excited with the how it looks now.
The book was turned back over to editor extraordinaire, Paula Guran, for a second round this morning.
I’m expecting that these edits should be mostly cleaning up spelling errors, typos or the odd awkward sentence as the bulk of the heavy lifting was done in round one.
Round two should be completed within a week or two.
Once that’s done, I’ll be reaching out to a few people who I have targeted for a beta read.
My hope is to launch a kickstarter campaing for printing/pre-ordering by mid summer.
