Oh, SNAP!

It’s been a mixed couple of days.

First…the good news. ¬†ūüôā

Yesterday evening, I approved the print proof of Glimmer Vale. ¬†Y’all know how nice the cover art is, but check out how beautiful the printed version is!

    

Pretty nice, huh?

Just for kicks, I decided to compare it to a book from my favorite fantasy series, The Wheel Of Time.  Observe:

Yes, that’s my toe. ¬†Alas, the front cover of Glimmer Vale would not stay shut for the picture, so, since I was pressed for time when I took the picture, I used my big toe to hold it in place.

I’m silly, I know.

In all seriousness, though, if you ask me, I’d say that GV’s cover art holds up pretty well against Crossroads of Twilight’s. ¬†Considering they’re the same genre, and Jordan is an icon in Fantasy, I think that’s pretty awesome. ¬†ūüôā

Anyway, Glimmer Vale is now available in Trade Paperback. ¬†If any of y’all want to buy a copy, go here, where I get the best royalty rate.

 

That’s the good news.

 

And now for the bad.

I was leafing through one of my proof copies of Masters of the Sun today, and pondering how I can improve the presentation (because I’ve learned A LOT since I made that book). ¬†And then I noticed it: an ENTIRE SCENE is missing from the book.

How in THE HELL did that happen????

I am, to say the least, flummoxed and embarrassed. ¬†And strangely thankful that so few people have purchased copies of the print version. ¬†Because….damn. ¬†That. ¬†Is. ¬†Bad.

I’ve already fixed that particular issue in the paperback file. ¬†But now I’m moving on to fix other things, namely paragraph breaks. ¬†I did NOT do a good job in splitting paragraphs in the initial version. ¬†Since I’m going through to fix one error, I might as well fix them all.

So that’s what I’m up for over the next couple days. ¬†*sigh*

 

Oh well.  Could be worse.

I could still be in New York. ¬†ūüėČ ¬†Yeah, San Diego rocks.
