The book is done...
All that remained was the cover.
Now it has a cover and you can get your own copy of book 1 of the Heartfire Saga!
This 6x9 trade paperback is about 230 pages, so it's a nice read over an evening or two. Book 2 should be out next spring.
So, I've written books, I've done textbooks, and I've illustrated books before, but I've never set a deadline like this before on such a big projects. I also haven't written a new novel for several years. This year, I wanted to challenge myself to be part of National Novel Writing Month!
I hope to have my book done, at least in rough draft, by the end of the month of November! When it's done, I plan on making a pretty cover, maybe a map or two, and releasing it on Amazon. I'm also hoping that releasing it chapter by chapter I gather a few more readers than I usually do for my works of fiction.
Wish me luck writing: The Emperor's Dogs
More about the rough story idea later!
Love those audio books? Want to do read-alongs as your child flips pages? I've just completed 2 more audio book versions on Youtube:
My latest graphic adventure is available! Sketched and inked and painted, this one is a great piece of science fiction. A mysterious crystal falls onto a dying world. What will happen when one man fights to cross the continent to get to it?
My latest book was inspired by my 2-year old. We were putting away rocks from our rock collection, and I told her that the rocks had to go 'night night.' She repeated this a few times, and it got me to thinking about what a rock might actually do during its life.
This is the first book I've written with 2-4 year olds specifically in mind. Hope it works as a bedtime story for your little ones. :)
Okay... maybe a bit goofy, too. :)
