I’m super excited to announce I will be attending Elkhart, Indiana’s, Hall of Heroes Comic Con, Sept. 4-5. Come visit me at the Far-Flung Press booth (AA7 in Artist Alley). I look forward to meeting readers old and new alike. I will have print copies of Heritage Lost available and should have Descent‘s presale launched by the time the event arrives. There just might some sweet online deals for those who can’t attend in person!
Author Kylie Betzner will be joining me at the booth. Kylie is an actress, martial artist, and the author of comedic fantasy series. She is also the proud mama of two cats. A fellow Hoosier, she will have her The Six–er–Seven Kingdoms trilogy and her Arthurian parody The Quest for the Holy Something or Other. Check out Kylie’s catalog on Amazon by clicking here.
I’m well past the halfway point on Descent initial edits; last I checked there were only 154 pages remaining (this is in a 500-page book). I always dreaded Descent‘s edits as I knew it was a very ugly baby, but as I go forward, I’m very pleased with the progress and edits I’ve made. Themes and characters are really emerging, and there is some really great imagery. It’s no longer my ugly baby but a solid follow-up to Heritage Lost.
Alpha readers have been responding positively to the manuscript and seem to really be responding to the text. One in particular keeps pacing my edits, which is really encouraging me to focus up on my edits in order to feed them more chapters.
Beta Readers Wanted!
Once the alpha readers are done and I make a few more changes to the manuscript, I will be seeking speedy beta readers to begin reading Descent in September; the hope is these readers will be able to finish their readings in October.
If you would like to to be a beta reader for Descent, email be at firstname.lastname@example.org with “Beta Reader” in the subject line. There will be a limited number of beta reader openings, as too many can end up being overwhelming.
As a thank you, I usually give my beta readers a digital copy of the finalized book for their e-reader.
