RoW80 Update: Calm, Consistent Seas.

I’m almost wondering if I should forgo RoW80 updates until Soulless is out, since there’s not a whole lot to update with considering I’m just plugging along with the last touches on the book (which actually includes a whole new chapter…ten days before publishing. Nice). Not a whole lot of excitement in Update-worthy material, but I’ve pretty much got the print version ready and now I’m going through that excellent chore that is formatting for the ePub. It’s a damn good thing I like coding…

Brushing it up this last time has made me feel a little more confident in the text itself. It’s not spectacular, no, but it’s at least entertaining, especially if you like those pulpy sci-fi/fantasy type books like I do. I think the real problem is going to be people assuming it’s something it’s not, and then either being upset about that or just not getting what I’m trying to do. If you’re not familiar with the genre, it probably seems pretty stupid. But we’ll see. Time will tell. I like it and it’s going to look gorgeous on a bookshelf, and that’s ultimately what matters most. That, and it’ll get more than Bowlful of Bunnies out into the world.

At the pace I’m going, balanced with some of the moving prep I’m doing, the garage sale I’m going to have, and working, I should have this ready for electronic format by Sunday. Knock on wood. That gives me a good solid five days to do any final quirking and touching before next Friday rolls around and it’s time to make this available to everyone. Exciting stuff in general, just not very exciting for RoW updates. You’ll likely find more excitement over here with my fellow RoWers, so check them out.

Happy writing!

  1. Sounds like things are going to plan for you. Hope all goes well with the launch. I’m gearing up to publish ‘Reunion of the Heart’ soon (thanks in advance for your help with the cover reveal!).

    It’s certainly exciting times we live in as indie authors being able to publish our own books and not having to sit around waiting for an agent and publisher to take us on! šŸ™‚

    1. Thanks for helping out with mine! I’ve been so elbows-deep in my own stuff (between editing and moving and working, oh my!) that I haven’t had a chance to really take a look at it until this morning, and, man, it is so damn cute! It’s going to be fun to feature it on Friday!

      1. Aw thank you! Gosh it really sounds like you’ve got a lot on your plate! Well done for keeping up with everything as much as you have. Don’t think I’d be able to in your situation! And yes Friday will be a blast! šŸ˜€

  2. Final touches on Soulless? Yay! Do you have a release date yet?

    Any plans for any other projects? I’m guessing you’d be working on the next Slayer book, but I don’t want to assume. šŸ™‚

  3. I loved the cover for Elaine Jeremiah’s book and can’t wait to see what you release for your own cover reveal. Yes, keep the ROW80 updates coming. That’s what gives me a chance to come and see what you’re up to! Even short and sweet, your post shows grace in a very intense time. May all that coding fall into line (sorry for the pun), and e-pub date go ahead as planned.
