Meal of Fortune Still Spinning
Thanks again to everyone who supported the crowd funding for The Meal of Fortune. Have been a bit quiet over the past few months since we hit the target but then I guess people are not that interested in hearing about the ins and outs of the publication process. I've also had my head down re-drafting and editing the whole book. The feedback I had from my editor Rachel once she got to work on it was that she loved it but thought it could be improved.
Then she sent me a long list of things to do.
This was initially a bit daunting and the though "this is my book I'll do it how I like" did cross my mind more than once. Having re-written a lot of the book now based on that advice all I can say is that the more I did the better the advice got.
Hoping to have final edit back from Unbound in the next few weeks and confirmation of a publication date. In the meantime I thought I'd share the first draft of the front cover that the designers have sent through. It will most likely change a bit but definitely sums up what the book is all about.
