The Spinner’s Game e-book update #22

September update… and the question remains: Will I be ready to publish The Spinner’s Game quint at Christmas?

While it is possible, the time out from writing these past two months don’t inspire great confidence in reaching that target. After last month’s family commitments and medical appointments, I now have IT problems. Twice the machine has been to the menders. But now, I’m assure, I have a clean machine. Oh Yay! Now the problem lies outside of me, with glitches in Google’s performance and my internet provider. Hours waiting for pages to load, timed out, start again. It all eats up time when I could be forging ahead with the editing. However… stop whinging.

Book Four: Lady of First Making

Oh Yay! Oh Yay! Oh Yay! It is done. The revisions, the rewrites and the deep-down editing. And so, as promised, the book cover reveal.

Another of Lauren’s wonderful designs. And doesn’t it look good in the series.

Book Five: (working title Asaric Sins)

This is still out with my beta readers, particularly since one was late in starting it. But as I said last month, the feedback to date is overall good. Oh yes, there are amendments needed, and additional material to be inserted. But that waits till the last comment is in.

In the meantime, I continue to edit the previous three books. I sing the praises of Pro-Writing Aid, but wish I’d not discovered it. For I thought those books done, and this little add-in app shows me they’re not. Oh, but the difference it makes! That extra edit has my writing fair gleaming.

And that’s all for now folks. The next e-book update will be… Sunday 6th October (and now the butterflies begin!)

    How exciting all of this is. I know the IT stuff can really throw a damper on things as I just went through all of that myself, but I know it is going to be perfect, regardless of when exactly it is ready. And in the end, I think that is what counts.

    • That hiccup came as a reminder that I am the one setting the deadlines, so just stop pushing myself. It’s one of the reasons to go with KDP, so I’m not dancing to somebody’s schedule; one of the reasons I’ve said all five will be ready before I press the button. I had enough of high stress deadlines in the job that came after I quit the theatre that resulted in CFS/ME (illness). This past week has reminded me. So … chill, Crispy, chill.

  3. Looking forward to the relase! Are you putting them out all at once, or one at a time?

    • My intention was to release all five together, but friends have advised to release three first off, then the other two a month or so later. Regardless, I don’t release until all are ready. To do so is to invite the unbearable stress of a deadline. And I’m sworn off them forever.


  4. Awesome! Love the cover too!
