It's been a long while since my last post, but I am excited to share that Book I has been line edited. After 18 months from my original publish date, I finally found an editor who would help me with the book and didn't break the bank. One of the learnings from this book journey is that longer books cost a heck of a lot more in every aspect: time to write, cost to edit, and cost to print. So a 650-page epic book typically would cost $4,000 to $6,000 to do a full line edit, and that simply wasn't feasible. But I came across Roxana Coumans form Roth Notions, Book Editing and she did a fantastic job finding over 200 edits (not typos, line edits) which help the book red/flow better. So thank you Roxana!
For any fans out there, tell a friend about Thran Book I: The Birth, and see if they'll give it a read. I lightly market the book on Amazon and Instagram, and do giveaways on Reddit, but it's hard to find new readers, there are sooo many options out there and a recommendation from a friend or loved one goes a long way.
Book II is now officially more than 50% done, and I try to work on it every weekend. It's fun to see the story unfold and reveal some of the deeper elements of the characters and the world. If you want a sneak peak, leave a review on good reads or amazon, and shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
