I have finished proofing the first section of The Plainsrunner (working title for my current novel) and will be moving on to publishing it. I have to do conversions to the various formats — ePub, PDF and MOBI — and then I have to make them available on the downloads page. Should I bother with a cover? Should I add any front matter or back matter? Copyright notice? I’m not sure what I’m going to end up doing.
The story is coming along well. It is accepting the elements I need to have in there, and it’s coming back with some interesting developments. I like that part of making a story, even though it can sometimes be a bit of a grind. I look forward to having this more mechanical part of publishing it done so I can get back to finding out what’s happening.
This is going to be shorter than the books in the Green Comet trilogy, and the pace is a little faster, too. I’m enjoying the change, and I hope you do as well.
