I'm excited to announce the hiring of a professional editor, Rose Jasper Fox (The Copymancer), for BC9. So far, the experience of working with her has been very positive. She's extremely organized, and from her site, you know exactly what you get. She's already offered a number of great insights in her overall critique, and we've still got the line edits and final review to go.
As you may have guessed, the hiring of an editor means I've officially decided to self-publish BC9. I still plan to query agents once the editing process is complete, but I'm done waiting, and I relish the opportunity to have complete control of everything. I've found a handful of great artists online who I feel could do wonders for the cover and website graphics. With my technical skills (web development, searching engine marking, social media awareness, etc.), I should be able to build a successful online platform. Then, maybe the agents and traditional publishers will come calling.
I hope to complete the final BC9 manuscript by midsummer 2014 and have all the book cover and site graphics in hand. By late summer/early fall, I plan to launch my official author platform, including updated websites with integrated checkout and social media profiles. These are exciting times!
