Cover of Night Time Cool

100 PER CENT and What Happens Next

Wednesday, 3 January 2018

A BIIIIG hello and MASSIVE THANKS for Night Time Cool hitting 100% on 2 January, 47 days after it launched.

I don't think it's a record for a 1st-novel author but it is up there - Unbound, the publisher, seem impressed, so I feel pretty fortunate - THANKS TO YOU ALL.

What happens next: over the next week or two I am assigned an editor, who reads the novel and makes a structural edit - basically a wholesale/comprehensive edit of the MS. For some authors, I am told, this can mean an intensive slice of work, for others not so much. 

There is also a cover design process. Basically, in collaboration, Unbound's art director comes up with 3/4 options for the cover of the published novel and one is then chosen.

I'm told this whole proces can take 4-5 months but I will know more in the next 1-2 weeks.

From me: MASSIVE THANKS AGAIN - the experience of crowdfunding was like a 47-day centrifuge. 

And, if any friends wish to buy the book they still can, of course, just hit any pledge button from £10 upwards.
