A look at what I'm
up to these days.
Updated on: June 27, 2018
Paperback coming in August of 2018!
I couldn't be happier with how Otherworld is turning out! Back in November, I began serializing it on the blog and sharing it with you guys has been SO MUCH FUN. XD Prepping it to be published in August is THE BIGGEST THING in my life right now--for obvious reasons. ;)
Here's what's happening this month:
*The cover has been revealed!
As a self-publishing author, I have been looking into my options and have decided to start my own publishing company.
It now officially has a name!
~Bide Ahwee Publishing and Multimedia~
What this means:
*Otherworld will bear my publishing company's name rather than Createspace, etc
*Tax forms and dealing with the IRS will be streamlined (hopefully!), especially as I begin hiring freelancers for things like cover art and copy editing.
*I will be less dependant on Amazon. In the future, I'm planning on having a direct relationship with a printer, which means I'd have much more control over the physical aspects of my books.
I'm working on a new book, that I've nicknamed Operation October. At least, I'm supposed to be working on Operation October. I have another book that I'm also working on. Cause...creativity happens. ;)
Here's what I can tell you so far:
*It will be another children's fantasy/magical realism/whatever genre it is. I'm bad at genretyping my books!
*I am still working on the rough draft
*It will (probably) be published in October of 2019
What I'm listening to while I write:
*The White Christmas movie soundtrack
What I'm reading--breif highlights:
*The Empress of Art: Catherine the Great and the Transformtation of Russia (by Susan Jaques)
*The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making (by Catherynne M Valente)
My family and I recently discovered the BBC show Death in Paradise and, wow! <3 Watching this show is teaching me so much about creating tension between characters, even ones that truly care about each other and get along failry well. ;)
I'm also hoping to spend a lot of time this month traveling around Florida with my dad--two natives on the loose! XD
