THE RISING HORDE: A Quick Update
First things first…I reveal to you the draft version of The Rising Horde‘s cover, by Jared Rackler. Still needs to be polished up a bit, and if the product gets split into two, then this will be the cover for Volume 1. (I still don’t know if this will happen for the book just yet.) And the tagline will be something else entirely, not the same one from The Gathering Dead.
Second bit, I just got the book back from Diana Cox, who does proofing work for a living. She had some very nice things to say about it, a snippet which I include here:
I just have to say: you have the whole page-turner, suspense, can’t-put-it-down thing down pat! I had to be extra careful on my second read-through because I got so caught up in the story the first time around, I overlooked a lot! THIS WAS GREAT!!!
Gotta love it when someone who sees hundreds of books a year says something like that!
Also got feedback from my occasional coauthor Derek Paterson, who said the thing was smooth as silk and a good, moving story. Yay for me, I guess!
Still have to see what the editor comes back with in early April, but I thought I’d just pass on the advance good word. April might be an interesting month for yours truly.
