Here's an update on my plan to self-publish and e-publish Beyond Cloud Nine.
I completed my initial changes to the manuscript and submitted them to my editor on 4/29. She should have the line-edited manuscript back to me by 6/1, although I foresee the beginning few chapters of the story still needing work, which could delay things.
I'm also intensifying my search for a graphic artist who'll do designs for both beyondcloudnine.com and the book cover. I hope to have someone selected by mid-May and designs in hand by July 1. During this time, I'll be enhancing both this site and beyondcloudnine.com.
By mid-July, I plan to have all line edits applied to the manuscript. By mid-August, I hope to have the completed manuscript in hand after proofreading is complete.
September 1 is my self-imposed deadline for self-publishing. I'll probably use a CreateSpace and Kindle Direct, but I'm still researching publishing houses.
to the author's mailing list to read the first three books of the Beyond Saga for FREE.
Beyond Cloud Nine
Beyond the Horizon
With the Earth conquered, Admiral Maya Davis must travel through space, time, and alternate universes to prevent mankind from being wiped out of existence.
Lyana, an orphaned martial artist with bio-augmented abilities,
embarks on a quest to liberate her home world and prevent the fabric of the universe from unraveling.
Bears in Space
Boz and his goofball crew must save the galaxy from cliche alien invasions, trite zombie apocalypses, and bad rom-coms.
Ryssa Nilsson must avoid the deadly stings of heat-loving bugs known as
thermophiles and escape Mars before the Sun's expansion
sterilizes the planet.
