Tinkering with cover art

November 26, 2013 | Real life

In between edits for A Scarlet Past and Simply Irresistible , I’ve been working on Joon’s Temptation, which turned into a much bigger project than the light edit I’d imagined. :shocked:

Naturally, after a week of agonizing over important points (a week on Enyo is four days long instead of the three I mistakenly thought) I did the sensible thing and set the story aside until after the third mech adventure is complete. Instead I fell into the seductive trap of redoing covers. One of the fun aspects of indie releases is the ability to change covers, text, just about anything without interrupting availability. :cool:

After much deliberation I added a green outline to the text for Dalila’s Choice. Uh, probably not visible. :blush:

Dalila version b

Here’s the softer French Script version:

Whatcha think?

Juggling multiple projects

August 23, 2013 | Real life


Head hopping (more about what it is and why it’s unpopular here) and here) usually refers to the distracting business of changing the viewpoint character without notice. Many readers find the practice irritating and editors usually advise against it.

While reading for pleasure, I prefer one point of view for a scene, chapters and even entire books in a single POV are fine with me.

The kind of head hopping plaguing me at the moment is similar, but more properly known as story hopping. There are writers who work on multiple novels at the same time. Not me. Well, not on purpose.

Simply Irresistible and A Scarlet past are both in edits while the third mech adventure is still unfolding, plus the usual background clamor from the dozens of unwritten stories continues to rumble.

Of course, I can only actually work on one story at a time, but my brain flits from one to the other since all three are active. Even with the mechs set on simmer I’m in overload mode. :pinch:

Do you prefer to concentrate on one task at a time or do enjoy juggling projects?

Research hazards

July 26, 2013 | Real life


While outfitting the current heroine I skimmed through dozens of pictures or various dog breeds. Now looking at puppies, even digital images of adorableness, is dangerous for this dog lover. I need to remember puppies grow very fast and teenage dogs require a great deal of time and effort before then become wonderful adult companions.

Characters pop into my head on regular basis. As with meeting people in the 3-D world, first impressions can be very misleading. Charlie the heroine of the third mech adventure, seemed tentative, submissive, even a little shy when she began talking to me.

She is cautious, at least so far, with good cause. Post-pandemic Earth teems with dangers and only the wary survive. However, she’s definitely not tentative, submissive or shy. If mech warriors trying to rescue her don’t watch their step they’re going to be serving her. Perhaps this is how the story is supposed to go. I’m always the last to know… :ninja:
