Hello again everyone,
So, while we’re still awaiting the big Launch book party for Bonnie’s Story on March 2nd at the SA Writer’s Centre, what exactly am I doing?
What’s that? You had no idea I was having a Launch of the eBook? Well, I am. Basically, during Adelaide’s Writer’s Week this year, I’ve been lucky enough to get the opportunity to show off Bonnie’s Story. However, as the eBook isn’t actually out until June this year, I’ve been a little creative in getting it Launched in March. I simply couldn’t miss the chance at being part of the Writer’s Week festival, rather than just a spectator. So! If you want to come along to an evening of me discussing Bonnie’s Story, do let me know. Alternatively, you can RSVP to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
What else? Last week I sent back my response to the first edit of Bonnie’s Story. There weren’t as many red corrections as expected, which was good. Now just awaiting the Official Proof Reader’s verdict, as well as the fine tooth comb edit my Publisher has given Bonnie’s Story to see if I need to make any more changes. Meaning, there could still be red corrections to come. Oh no!
And we are near the completion of the cover art to Bonnie’s Story by the very talented Dean Harkness. I am in awe of how he has cleverly taken my obscure suggestions and instructions and re-created the image I had of the cover in my mind. It may not be exactly the same, but it is so darn close it’s scary how clever he is. Once the cover art is completed and ready to be shared, never fear – it’ll be posted here!
Once I have that glorious cover art completed, I will be using it to post an official invite to my Launch for one and all here on my blog. I can’t promise chocolate at the Launch, but I can assure you’ll get information on how to be one of the first people to be able to buy a copy of Bonnie’s Story.
Do you like the re-decorating I’ve been doing to the blog? Why the chocolate theme? Well, there is an underlying theme of chocolate throughout Bonnie’s Story that, as a confirmed chocoholic connoisseur, I felt should be shared. The only problem I have with it is, if I spend too much time working on my blog, I get a desperately huge craving for the fancy choccies on display. Damn!
So, that’s you updated. Excited? As I am! Not long now until it’s all happening. Time to go brush up on reading in public I think.
