My last post was about thinking and doubts… well now it’s time for the action.
Like many writers my focus is on the words, the plot, the characters and the dialogue. With my editor I’ve done well with all of that. I made a big mistake however and I now intend to correct that. I badly underestimated the importance of covers and design.
I knew I was doing as well as I could with limited resources but that was not good enough. Only the best professional design can do justice to the work Miriam and I have done on the novels so… that’s what’s going to happen. All the novels, begining with the trilogy and Companions will get a full make over. The Daniel series will follow.
The interior formatting will be redone with splendid templates from Joel Friedlander’s: http://www.bookdesigntemplates.com/template-gallery/
For the new covers, I will be seeking local designers to do those.
The work deserves the best possible chance of success and much of the doubt I’ve had recently, stems from the fact that I’ve not giving it that chance.
I’ve not been wrong, just not right enough. I will keep trying until it’s as right as it can be.
