SUNDAY 15th JULY 2012
Me again! You don’t hear from me for a while and then you get two posts in one day, I’m sure there is a cliché saying in there somewhere but I will refrain from expressing it.
After spending the first two months of 2012 blasting my novel, I tucked the First Draft to one side for a couple of months to get it out of my head, in order that i could return to edit with a fresh pair of eyes.
It has now endured one round of editing. I still feel I have a long way to go and have enlisted the help of a few Proof Readers to help me in my quest.
They are people of different ages and different sexes, enabling me to get a varied opinion. Ideally it is categorised under the ‘Chick-Lit’ Genre, but it is useful to have a bloke’s perspective and one of them is a very good friend who is now writing his own novel, so his opinion and help is valued.
So, hopefully if it survives proof reading stage, back it comes for another round of editing. I am also counting this as a first step in my Market Research.
As an Indie Author, I am slowly learning the ropes and I want to get the Marketing right for this piece (If I am ever happy with it!), as someone cleverly quoted on Twitter the other day; if you don’t know what you are doing with your Marketing, it shows.
I will keep you updated of my progress but I just wanted to say a huge thank you to the people who are helping me at this stage, I appreciate your time and opinions.
Have a lovely Sunday Peeps!
