Runic Awakening is almost ready for publishing! I'm working with Bookfly Design to finish the cover design, and the ebook file is complete. Just a few more edits for the print version left to do!
I knew that self-publishing was going to be a lot of work, but I still managed to underestimate just how much time and effort it would take...and how much I had to learn. Turns out that writing my books was just the beginning. Editing them, formatting the print and ebook versions, figuring out how to submit them to online publishing platforms, getting ISBN numbers for each version of each book...it was quite the educational experience. Not to mention perhaps the most important part of writing a book: marketing!
The good thing is, now that I've done this once, it'll be easier for the next books in the series. The final drafts are nearly complete for book 2 and book 3...and I expect them to be published in December of 2016 and February of 2017, respectively. I'll keep you posted!
