Thanks to the time spent at the beach and away from home, I feel refreshed and energized for the summer. That means I’ll be recovering from sunburns the next couple of weeks. It also means I managed to finish the first draft of my manuscript for my next story. I don’t want to make an official announcement just yet because I’m still tweaking the title. I don’t like to finalize the title of a new book until I’m absolutely sure it fits.
Now this is not going to be a story with the same scope or scale as Skin Deep. This is a much shorter, more compact story. It’s focused in that it gets right to the point, delivering everything I hope to deliver for the intended audience. Just what audience will this book appeal to? Well, I’d like to keep that under wraps for the time being, but I will say it’ll have a very specific appeal.
While I wrote this book with every intention of self-publishing through Lulu again, I am going to try and get a publisher to publish it for me. It would likely have to be a niche publisher of sorts, but I’m willing to start small and work my way up to the big time. First though, I need to edit and refine my draft so that it’s as polished as can be. Don’t know how long that will take, but I’m willing to be patient. Great things cannot be rushed.
