The Spinner’s Child (formerly Asaric Lies, Book One)
Last month I reported on the brilliant work of cover designer Lauren Willmore, who just happens to be my critique partner (I’m so lucky). She is working on the art pages which will introduce each of the five parts to the book. Last month I had just taken possession of Part One: On Eagle Wings. I now have two others.
I’m holding back on the other one to show them in order.
Asaric Skies (WT: Book Three)
another name change and another book cover
I finished the rewrite of Asaric Skies last week and, the very next day it winged its way to a couple of betas. I’m hoping that any changes now needed will be minor. And so to announce it’s new name and flash its cover …
The Pole That Threads
More of Lauren’s wondeful work!
Asaric Sons (WT: Book Four)
This is now with various beta-readers, although it’s not too late to volunteer. See Contact Me
So far, two betas have read and returned the questionnaires … many, many thanks, to you both … one of these readers remarked that she couldn’t put it down. (That bodes well for when the quint finally hits the Kindle Reads.) Of the remaining betas, I’m expecting final returns from two during the next two to three weeks. Of the others … all are up to date with returns, not need to nudge anyone this time.
Once all questionnaires with their comments are in, I’ll give thought to what might be required by way of revision and rewrite. In the meantime …
Asaric Sins (WT: Book Five)
Book Five. Last book in the quint! Break out the champagne.
Ah, but that’s being hasty. The opening chapters of Book Five require a massive makeover, and those changes will affect later chapters. So, I’m thinking this is the book that’s going to need the most work. Even so, I am hoping it’ll be ready for my loyal and enthusiastic team of beta readers by mid-to-late summer. And then … and then …
And I guess that’s all I can report, for now. Work proceeds, strides are made … even though many seem more like tiny steps.
The next e-book update will be … Sunday 5th May.
