The Spinner’s Game (Asaric Tales) e-book Update #19

June: eighteen months into the project, and … to summarise:

Book One: The Spinner’s Child

Front matter and back cover blurb are still outstanding. Lauren has one more illustration to deliver.

Chapter Art





Otherwise, it’s ready to go.

Book Two: Lake of Dreams

Apart from front matter and back cover blurb, here’s another of the quint ready to go.

Bs 1 and 2 and 3 cpBook Three: The Pole That Threads

The third book too is merely in want of front matter and back blurb.

Book Four: Lady of First Making (working title Asaric Sons)

And I am pleased to report that all beta readers have now returned their completed questionnaires, with additional comments. Although there are no major changes required, attention is needed in the final chapter and in a few places prior to that. It’s now on hold until Book Five goes out to the beta readers.

Book Five: (working title Asaric Sins)

Last month I said I’d been looking at ways to improve this last book of the quint. I had made notes, replotted, cut, pasted and deleted—and left huge gaps. I am now midway through the rewrite. With seven weeks to go to my self-imposed deadline at the end of July, and the bulk of the new material written, I might just make it. So watch this space for my next call for beta readers.

The next e-book update will be … Sunday 7th July.

As ever, my thanks to my faithful beta readers, and to Lauren for providing such inspired artwork. One more to go; I’ve seen the first sketches. My spine tingles.

      Hey, that’s brilliant, Joanne. Though you do realise this will be the fifth book in the quint (which isn’t the same as a series of stand-alones) though I shall provide brief blurbs of the story to date.
      On the other hand, I really do welcome a newcomer at this point.
      Let me know your thoughts when I put out the call. Also, I have to advise, there could be triggers. But that’s something to be discussed nearer the time.
