Carolyn Crane said we should enter The Carolyn because we are both named Carolyn. Well, I entered My Darkest Passion and it’s a finalist! That is very gratifying and exciting news. Ms. Crane did not enter, which is a shame. She ought to have. Her books are wonderful.

Woot!! My Darkest Passion has been Uploaded

Thursday, April 18th, 2013

Serious face of a Southeast Asian (Indian) man looking to the left. He is extremely handsome.

Cover! Hot!

OK, folks. It’s REAL.

I’ve uploaded My Darkest Passion to:

Amazon
B&N
Kobo
Apple

Smashwords and ARE are next, then the print version.

It’ll be a couple of days before the files are actually on sale, and, naturally, I am now wracked with nerves that I uploaded the wrong file or missed some major formatting problems, or that the book just isn’t any good.

Down To The Wire

iPad screenshot

screencap

This is a screenshot from my iPad where I do my first round of proofreading before I start preparing the different file versions for an eBook.

BookProofer makes it really fast and easy to make corrections, and I find that reading through on the iPad helps me find html errors as well as typos and other issues. No matter how meticulous I think I’ve been, there are ALWAYS errors, and I usually say, more than once, “How did I miss THAT?”

This file isn’t (yet) customized for various devices, though it will be the baseline for the Apple version. Right now, I’m just finding file-specific errors. When that’s done, I’ll start viewing on many other devices and tweaking as much as possible.

Update!! Revisions for My Darkest Passion are Done

Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013

I have just sent the revision MS for My Darkest Passion to my copy editor.  I expect that will take a couple of weeks. But after that, more or less, it’s a matter of file preparation.

Thank you to every one who’s written to ask when the book will be out. The answer is soon! Really soon!

After this, I can say that I will be better about my estimates. This is the first novel that’s not backlist and because of that, people like editors and copy-editors are essential.

So, again,. SOON! REALLY SOON!

Writing News: One Starlit Night and My Darkest Passion

One Starlit Night

One Starlit Night, the novella I wrote for the anthology Midnight Scandals will be available for individual purchase with in a day or two. Possibly even by the time you’re reading this. I’ve uploaded the files and now it’s just wait for them to post! I’ve uploaded to Amazon, Barnes&Noble, Kobo, Apple and Smashwords. AllRomance eBooks is more work so that will take a day or two more.

As soon as I have links, I’ll post them. So, go forth and purchase. If you didn’t buy the anthology, here’s you chance to have just mine. Or just Courtney Milan’s, or just Sherry Thomas’s.

The cover, by the way, was made by the amazing Courtney Milan.

My Darkest Passion – Update

The MS is back from my editor. It took longer than I had figured in the schedule which is why I’m behind. I’m learning as I go how long things take. This is the first time my editor has worked on a full length novel for me, so I could only guesstimate the time. I expect the revisions to take about a week, and then it goes to my copyeditor. And THEN I’ll start creating the files. So, soon? OK?

I’m getting the print cover pulled together as we speak and I think I’ve worked out the kinks for the interior formatting for the print version. Progress is being made!
