Life for me never gets this far off center. The truth is I need to make a big change to my book. Voices. I need to distinguish clearly the difference between each of my characters voices. Red Beard has a very clear voice that cannot be mistake as anyone else. The Ambassador’s voice is fair but could use a little tighten up.. The Archbishop’s voice is pretty fair too, but it could use a tweak or two. Jack’s voice Casandra’s, and Lunar’s voices need work. Mrs. Callahan is okay but tuning it better will help to bring depth to her character.
Besides that? There is in general some other work too that needs to be done before I get to and editor. While the act of writing is free except for the time spent doing it, the editing and cover work is not free. Money flow has been tighter than it needs to be and we have been reworking our budget to allow for more work on the book. Honestly though, I have to finish it to my best ability before I can send it off to an editor.
The cover that has kept me going is not going to be the cover that will be on the finished book. My reading group says it is a proper cover for a love story or a smut book but not for Eversoul. To that advice I will run a contest at the end of February for my new cover.
When the contest opens I will post everything here and share the designs offered. For tonight I am off to bed. See you all again soon.
