This week was the last week for Seeming! Are you going to miss it? I’m sorry, I don’t even have a tentative release date for You Can’t Trust The AI, so I can’t even torture you with that. But it’s coming! In fact, there should be at least six S86 books eventually.
I’m getting ready to release Seeming as an E-book. This is actually the third e-book I’ve published, and my process has changed a lot. So have my tools. With that being the case, I wanted to give you a behind the scenes look at my process.
After I went through three drafts and a polish with this book, I put it through a new tool that I learned about recently. It’s called Grammarly, and it’s my new best friend. It’s an in depth grammar checker that caught a lot more that the grammar checker on Open Office. Now, I don’t have the paid version. The free version seems to be working just fine for me, to be honest. It basically just tucked my shirt in and combed my hair.
I worked with an amazing artist, Jeremy McClimans to create the cover art for Seeming. He sent this cover to me, and I thought I was going to cry. I mean, look at it!
After creating the covers for my first two books and thinking, “Eh”, I’m so glad I hired a professional for this one.
I switched up the software I used to create my e-book this time to Calibre. I won’t be going back. It was so easy to select fonts, set up the pages how I wanted them, establish the cover art. It was perfect. I would highly advise it if you’re going to self publish.
Actually, this one didn’t change. I’m using Gumroad and Tablo, just like I have for the other books. But how can I not? Gumroad allows me to set up coupons and is super easy to use. I can see how many people have looked at my books in a given week, which I like because I’m vain. And Tablo puts your book on the I Store, which is kind of a big deal.
Seeming, with an exclusive Episode 7 will be available on November 28. What’s in Episode 7? Well, I wonder why Godfrey hasn’t heard from his dad on Earth. Keep an eye out for pre order goodness.
