Release Date, Cover Reveal & Blurb

I’m going through the manuscript with a fine-toothed comb and Gregg is learning everything he can learn about e-publishing and self-publishing. It’s all coming together!

So, mark your calendars. We’re going to discount the first 1,000 copies.

Short Cuts

Now, though, I’m sitting with the boys running around fighting with light sabers, bread is rising, laundry is washing, and a turkey is cooking in the roaster. I have to force this time on the computer — because there are so many other things around me that require my attention.

Things I’ve Learned This Week

This week was my first full week totally focused on this new venture as an “official” novelist. I’m working on my trilogy, focusing this week on the first one (Sapphire Ice) and the third one (Topaz Heat). Sapphire publishes this month. I’ve been working on final edits, getting feedback from a set of beta readers, writing the blurb, and working with the cover artist. Gregg has been researching how to publish it and all of the details and nuances involved within that big giant convoluted world (he sends me technical articles in emails titled, “Stuff I Read So That You Don’t Have To” — and when I skim through them I’m reminded of how much I love and adore my husband), and tweaking this blog.

On Topaz, I’ve been filling in the holes after the first draft, re-writing chapters, and fluffing out thoughts and feelings in scenes. I could do that all day long, really. I love writing.

I’ve also been trying to create a web presence as Hallee Bridgeman, Novelist, as opposed to Hallee the Homemaker. Which requires reading and commenting on author blogs as opposed to homemaker blogs, working the Facebook and Twitter scene as Hallee Bridgeman instead of Hallee the Homemaker, and learning how Google+ operates.

I’ve learned a few things this week:

Reading Without Editing

Wednesday and Thursday last week, I re-read Topaz Heat — book 3 of the Jewel Trilogy. I’d finished the rough draft of it several weeks ago and just tabled it, because I felt like “something” was missing – I just couldn’t really get a grasp on what that “something” was.

Introducing…Hallee the StoryTeller!

We will begin publishing my novels this month. Sapphire Ice is the first book of the trilogy — and hopefully by mid-March we will have a firm publication date.
