Wow that's a fancy font for the title of this journal entry. And a very plain font for the body text.
Anyways, so it's been almost a month since my last update. I've been struggling through my second draft, making a lot of changes to the novel, and bouncing back and forth between ideas for the characters and the plot. But you can hardly blame me, first books are hard and I'm also including mythological figures into my story, who are literally larger than life.
Spent the better part of today writing outlines for the appendices I plan to include at the end of the novel (educational notes at the end of a novel meant for kids/young adults? You're just padding the word count, aren't you?)
I'm around a month away from when I plan to publish the novel, and while I haven't gotten the text finely polished yet, I'm getting to the point where I'm thinking about the other things I will need before I make it available for sale. Namely, I'm starting to look for artists to draw a book cover. I've already sent out a couple of notes to some of the artists I know, but have yet to get a reply back.
It is a rather daunting thing though, seeing as how I would like the artist to be available to make covers for the other 19 books I have planned, but that's a matter for another day.
That's about it for now. Hope you are all having a nice day.
And if you know an artist looking to do some book cover work, toss a note my way and we'll see if we can make something happen
