Thunder: The Countdown Clock Has Started…

Thunder Cover v4Thunder is now on my Kindle…

I’ve finished my hardcopy edits and transcribed the changes into my master manuscript.  Yesterday, I started the file conversion process and the usual iterations of layout corrections necessary to get the document into eReader format (which is something of a mind-numbing task that I’ll need to produce a guide for at some point…).

The net result is that I have a pre-publication copy of the first edition on my own device.

Now I’m doing a final page turn.  Just to make sure that everything looks okay and, if all goes well, Thunder will be published at the end of next week.

Now a combination of nerves and excitement kick in… After over a year of hard grafting, I’m finally in the home straight and, I have to say, I’m feeling very satisfied with how the book is looking.  The scary part is whether readers will feel the same way…!

Planned Publication Date: Saturday 15th December.

  1. I’m sure you are nervous and excited. It’s a lot of work publishing a novel and I’ve seen how much you’ve put into it through your blog posts. Best of luck to you. Hopefully the response will be great!

    I’ll be putting my debut novel out next month. It seems like I have a million things to do to get ready before then. I think I’m driving my family nuts, lol.


  2. Thanks to you too. I’ll probably do the cover reveal on my blogs at the beginning of January after everyone has gotten the festivities of the holidays out of their system. It’s looking really good and I can’t wait to reveal it :)


  3. I just finished reading Firebird. Loved your interpretation of a Phoenix. Good luck with Thunder!
