On With The Show!

Editing: Finished!

Only stage 3 of the whole process to go – the FORMATTING! (stage 1 – writing, stage 2 – editing)

If there was one thing I could tell someone to do if they’re completely bonkers enough to fall in love with this writing of tall tales business, it’s to not stop writing until they’ve reached ‘the end’. Then they can edit, judge, expand, and otherwise eviscerate, the end result.

It’s … exhilarating!

I’ve had a couple of days of feeling like I’m a lost sock in the washing machine of life, (normal after six months of concentrated concentration) now it’s …

On With The Show!



On a more prosaic note, I’ve had a fine joust with my new diabetes medication. The dosage was waaaay too high, and seeing as how some of the nastier side-effects were vomiting and diarrhea, I will leave it to your imagination as to what I’ve been going through from a digestive point-of-view – suffice it to say, not fun … but all digitalia crossed, my keel should be even from now on.


And now, the real reason I’ve asked you all here this evening. (cue dramatic music …)


Phew! That certainly was dramatic.

When I mentioned in my last post that I was still looking for the right cover art, (I had some very specific imagery in mind) Olga Godim offered to see what she might be able to create for me.

And create something for me, she most assuredly did!

Behold, the cover reveal and title reveal of my book …

Cover, revealed!

Cover, revealed!

Speaking of fantasies, if this series, yes it’s going to be a series, ever makes it to the ‘big screen’ or smaller ones, I want that piece of music as the theme music.

  9. A wonderful cover – and dramatic music. At least you managed to get diabetic, dosage, diarrhea, digestive, and digitalia into a short prosaic piece.

    The image of the sprint finish with everything clenched is perhaps one I shall try and erase… or run for cover from (groan – the pun works, the grammar sucks). Excellent to N (where N is staggeringly ginormous)

    Wow, that looks amazing! Congratulations- the perfect blend of ‘pretty’ & ‘powerful’, I love it- very appealing.

    And I hope your body settles down soon, that sounds tricky 🥴

  15. That cover looks wonderful–shades of mystic blue. (I saw this post briefly while scanning WP by tablet; decided to come back when I had a real keyboard for comments.)
