In two weeks Jen, Erin and I will go for a short break to the Fiji islands and the Gold Coast in Queensland. Needed beyond belief.
In the meantime, winding up my current assignment at my day job, and also furiously trying to complete editing Linda Penhall’s wonderful book, They Never Gave Up. We really want to publish it in October, so the completion of the editing and proofing is critical. Of course, I continue to do my own writing, and looking closely at what I do with The Scepter and the Orb.
Finally, looking forward to what IFWG Publishing comes up with for my novel’s cover. It has to be good, and feature prominently Penina’s artwork that I acquired.
A busy two weeks.
Penina sent me her image after she signed the contract for its use, and I paid for it. Now there is nothing stopping IFWG Publishing from finalizing the cover and publishing Guardian of the Sky Realms. Excellent!
The painting, Wings, by Penina Gal, was the original inspiration for my YA Novel, Guardian of the sky Realms. Well guess what – the artist has agreed to allow me to purchase rights to have it used as the cover of my novel. Incredible result – not only is it (obviously) highly pertinent to my novel, but it now has a very powerful connection to it as well.
I am expecting, based on how close to finalised all this is, that the novel will be out in October. Very excited indeed.
You can find the painting on her website (look for the purple coloured thumbnail, called Wings).
