I haven't posted lately because I've been swamped. First off, as you can see, my website is different. For some reason, the other template decided to quit working with some of the plugins I wanted to use in the future. So part of my being too busy to post was me redoing my website. I'm quite fond of the new look and layout, so I guess it was time well-spent. And maybe I should thank the other layout for crashing?
I've also been busy with the big change that prompted all of this. As of October 1st, I will be an indie author (independent, self-published, and whatever other names there are for it). After an amicable parting with my current publisher, I've been busting my butt, trying to get everything ready to re-release Alaskan Healing.
I found an artist to design a new cover. Isn't it awesome? (Thank you, Lori Gnahn!)
I learned how to format for CreateSpace, so you'll still be able to purchase a bound copy of the book. I also learned all about epublishing, so Alaskan Healing will be available on a variety of ebook platforms.
The past two weeks, I've been proofreading, editing, and making minor changes to Alaskan Healing. The story is the same, some words are different, a few grammatical errors were corrected, and some punctuation issues have been rectified. I have read every word of this book five times in the past two weeks.
As you look at the cover, you'll see that there's a new line, "An Alaskan Healing Novel." Yes, there's going to be more than one. As previously mentioned, I'm working on Alaskan Hope, which I hope will be ready by Spring of 2013.
I know that's a long time to wait for a book from an author if you really like the author, but don't worry. I intend to have a different book out by December 1st, so you can buy a copy for yourself as a gift for the holidays. It's not a member of the Alaskan Healing Family, but I think you'll enjoy it still.
I'll do my best to keep you entertained.
