November Update and Cover Reveal! (Update #6)

This month I have been editing more of my novel, although I haven’t edited in a few weeks and forgot where I left off, so I might just start over again from the beginning again. I have also wrote out a bunch of character development sheets for pretty much all of the characters in The Unusual Isles (I did 29 of them). I know that this is really late in the writing process to be making out character development sheets, but since I am writing a sequel it will be nice to have them for the sequel.

Speaking of a sequel, I already have a title for it, although I’m not going to reveal that right at this moment, but a sequel will be written, right after I finished up editing. I am actually getting really excited for writing the sequel; I wrote out the entire outline for it last night. Parts are going to be really sad and I would be lying if I said all of the characters were going to make it to the end of the book alive.

An estimated publishing date is still set for around Christmas time, at least that’s what I’m really aiming for. The one thing that is really holding me back isn’t necessarily the editing, but the fact that if I publish it and file for copyright and then find a little grammar error in it later, it’s going to bug me forever.

I am also planning on making a separate Facebook page specifically for The Unusual Isles, so be on the look out for that coming soon!  

Also, I have picked a cover I am going to use for the book. Thanks to everyone who voted, and although the cover I picked isn’t the one that received the most votes, after consulting with a few people who know the book best besides me, we decided that this cover fit the mood of the book best.

Without further ado, here is the cover of The Unusual Isles (or the picture at least)

  1. Go you! It's nice to know the book is coming out soon(or relatively soon), and I applaud your attention to detail. As a fellow author, I know it would drive me nuts, too.
