The proof editing is well under way for Aqua. Formatter and printing company both on board.
I've told my boss my second publication is due out this year and warned her it's not in any way like the other 'nice' one. Her reply was okay, provided my author's page doesn't say what I do and where I work. No way! I'd be far to embarrassed to go back to work afterwards if it did. No, this time there will be no bio, I wish to remain incognito for the most part. Well, as incognito as you can be trying to make a name for yourself with a terribly sexually violent novel. Maybe I'll get a male body double to be my alter-ego?
I've had yet another re-think on the pen name subject. Gone back to my original name once I realised it wouldn't be on sale in the same parts of a bookshop or library. Likewise kindle etc tends to be under genre too. Mind you I did like C.M.Salt. Had a very manly ring to it I thought.
The cover is blown - so to speak. After securing and paying for the copyrights to an image of a cruise liner I find the main image of a tropical storm which I love, does in fact belong to someone who sold the image to Wisconsin Weather Website USA. Damn and blast, back to square zero on that issue. I have secured one thing though a book cover designer, though he was hoping to use my image. It'll now just have to have knives, guns and nude women all over it instead I guess.
If you know of any women who'd like to life model for the silhouette drop me a line!
