Today THE ALIGNMENT is featured on Indies Unlimited, a source for high-quality indie books. The feature is permanent, so even if you’re not reading this the day I posted you can still link to it here.
They also have a Bookstore with so many great finds I blame them for adding pages to my TBR list. You’ll see THE ALIGNMENT on the first page of the Platinum Club.
If you’re hesitant to browse independent books because, let’s face it, there’s a lot to wade through before you get to the good ones, Indies Unlimited is a great place to start.
Someone on Pinterest said THE ALIGNMENT is “truly a great book, and an even better love story.” I don’t use Pinterest, but thank you, person on Pinterest. :)
Editing progress for THE TWO: We’re working on big picture items right now, so I can’t really give a percentage of completion. As of today, my editor has taken a turn and I’ve taken a turn. Now it’s back with my editor again. Let’s call this Round 1. Of how many rounds total? I’m guessing 5. But don’t hold me to it.
I think we can consider cover art to be started, too. A couple weekends ago I dropped some props off with my photographer, Keith Lee. We examined the props and discussed my vision at a table in a packed Jimmy John’s and I’m pretty sure the other customers thought we were larpers. And no, I’m not telling you what those props are. Sorry. Keith is experimenting with different setups and lighting as we speak. He’s a bit of a photography god. I can’t wait to see what he does.
