HERE’S HOPING

Happy Friday! I hope you are all doing well. Today’s post is short, but it comes with a giveaway! :)

We seem to have finally managed to upload a PDF of the cover that Createspace has no issues with. I woke up yesterday morning to this in my inbox from whoever (or whatever…) sends out the “file review” emails from CS.

“Congratulations! Your interior and cover files for Second Son, #3637150 meet our technical requirements for printing.”

Those were beautiful, beautiful words to read, my friends. Even better, was when I looked at the digital proof and saw none of the weird marbling (or camouflage-y) effect on the title on the cover! Hip-hip hooray!

The proofs will be arriving on Tuesday, and if they look as good as the digital proof, be on the lookout for an exciting announcement!!! And, since the weird marbling showed up in the digital proofs as well as the print copies in the past, I am confident enough that we are very close to publishing that I’m including a giveaway for one signed copy of SECOND SON to a lucky winner! (Can only ship to USA residents, sorry!) Have a lovely weekend, dear Readers! See you back here next week!

One of the characters I’d really like to hear more about was Calyssia. I don’t know, I just felt there was a lot of mystery around Pearl Cove and I would have liked to know more about her.

That’s great news about the printing!

:) Well, you’re in luck. Calyssia definitely plays a part in Second Son, and gets a little bit more explanation. She does remain one of the characters whose story I mostly hint at, though.

Oh yay! I’m glad the cover is working now! I can’t wait to read Second Son.
My favorite character in King’s Warrior is Oraeyn. I’m looking forward to getting to know him better in future books. Second is probably Yole… or Keirnan Kane (and I know I spelled his name wrong, but I can’t find the correct spelling anywhere! Ahhh!) or Yole and Kane (I can spell that) together.
Anyway, I loved your book!

Yay! I love Oraeyn, too. You were close on the spelling, it’s Kiernan Kane.

Thanks for commenting! I’m so glad you enjoyed the book!

Yay! I can’t wait!!! I’m so glad everything seems to be working out!

I would like to know more about Kiernan Kane! He’s so interesting, funny, and mysterious! :)

:) no worries, Kiernan Kane continues to be a character whose layers get peeled back a bit more in each of the four books!

Since Jack is still kidnapped I – Peter Jones – entered for her. And I told her the good news and she bounced all around and all that. She’s says to tell you she hopes it works as she knows how annoying it can get to have files rejected over and over.

I passed your message along to Trystan and I think he agrees. Since she was kidnapped, Jack has refused to write one word in his book, so I think the whole thing messed up on him.I think it is funny – he apparently doesn’t. Oh well.

Hello, Peter. I’m glad you were kind enough to enter the giveaway for your author, and I’m glad to hear that Jack is excited!

I hope you are doing well. I look forward to reading more about your story in Abolished Impracticality, once I get some $$ and can get my hands on a copy of my very own! :)

My favorite fantasy books are The Chronicles of Narnia and the Lord of the Rings books. That might sound cliché, but I can’t help it; they’re still the best around. I haven’t yet read King’s Warrior but you have me so intrigued now that it’s going on my must-read list.
