What’s New Wednesday: Progress Update

I’ve been working diligently on my next novella which features Broguean the Bard, and for those of you who have been waiting so patiently, I’m happy to announce that the wait is almost over!

I am down to the very end now, having just written the climax of the book, and I’m on track to finish up within the next couple of weeks. Then I’ll be on to the business of looking for a few beta readers, editing, and polishing everything up for publication.

As you can see, the artwork is finished, provided once again by the very talented Alfredo Pachicano! All I need now is a title so that it can be turned from a single image into an actual book cover. If all goes according to plan, this novella will hit ebook shelves sometime in March. Stay tuned for more specifics as they become available.


Interested in being considered as a beta reader for this and future books?

In an upcoming newsletter I’ll be asking for volunteers who are already familiar with my series. Subscribers also get the chance to win prizes and gain inside information about my world, characters, and inspirations that can’t be found anywhere else. When you sign up, you’ll get a free copy of my second book, Ancient Voices: Into the Depths.

 

Beta Readers, It’s About the Book – Not You

by Ashleigh Giannoccaro

For me over the last five (now six) books my beta team has proved to be one the most valuable resources. Sometimes we need that unbiased opinion to separate us from our ‘book babies’ so we can see the faults. These are often the first eyes on your work and they give their time and effort to help you make it better. I want my beta team to rip it to shreds so I can sew it all back together better in the end. It’s not about me, it is about putting out the best book possible…
