Okay, the new title text and back page text are completed and uploaded to Amazon and Kindle and will take up to 24 hours to appear – and that’s the end to a lot of fiddling about and clears up some “meaning-to” jobs that have been hanging over my head for months.
I went for small text in the number in the series line because I was thinking of how the book would look in the hand, not as a thumbnail picture, so although it’s not clear in the thumbnail picture, I believe it was the right way to go. As Greg pointed out to me, I have so many labels and pointers that the books are part of the series, no one should miss it.
Manuscript-wise, I’m making some progress behind the scenes, mainly tromping through Khekarian and Terran officialdom (oh, what joy) and trying to keep it short and sweet and therefore not boring to read.
Officialdom seems to have taken over my life inside and outside the book. It was my passport only a couple of weeks ago.
Still, I think that’s it now for filling in forms and submitting them for assessment and approval. Which means I can stop fretting about it and get going with more important things, like Khekarian infringement on Terran territories and them getting their papers in order.
…So I guess that means I’m not out of the woods yet.
