Okay, we’re about a week from going live, so I figured it was time to do something about the cover of The Worms Of Heaven. Fortunately both my roommate /photographer and I are used to working under pressure and we’ve come with what I think is as good as the first one–in fact it makes me want to reshoot Cannibal Hearts.
(Unfortunately, I put it together too late to be included in the very nice pre-release review from SK Nicholls.)
I sent a pre-release copy to Brandon McKernan, who narrated my first two for audible, and he’s agreed to read this one as well. So I’ll have e-book and print edition by the first part of September, and audiobook in production shortly thereafter.
The last couple of days I’ve been going back and forth over the book, doing all the little last minute edits, making the capitalization consistent, putting together the table of contents, that kind of thing.
I still like this book. I think I’m growing into my genre, which is a kind of paranormal soap opera. I am very happy with my characters and how they interact, I have done my best to make them people, even when they aren’t human.
It’s a lot of work–damn, it’s a lot of work, and for very little financial return. But it’s worth it.
Most of the time.
