Blue Pill/Red Pill
As for the book release, I'm still not sure. I think the cover will only require one additional run, and I'm having a couple of items addressed with my interior formatter, and it may end up reducing the size of the book a little. I'm still targeting April as the expected timeframe.
It's a big book. It packs a wollop.
I have so much going on right now you wouldn't believe. I started preliminary mock-ups for the cover of MB4, and have been mulling over titles. I know Mageri fans will read it regardless of the cover or title, but I still want it to be right. I'm sure a lot of people wondered why I chose impulse, but I have reasons behind each title.
Tomorrow at 4:30pm, my vacation officially begins! I am trying to make myself have fun and not work the entire time, even though that was the reason I took it. So that means I'll probably go up to the casino for a day, eat out, maybe even bowl in Logan's honor. But this is the time for me to finish up my editing with MB4 to pass it off to the betas.
March will be a busy month because I'm designing the cover, and also using that time to possibly work on another book. I don't even want to think about writing book five at this point, and I plan to start that as soon as MB4 is released, if not while the editor has it. I even did a few mock-ups for "Book white" as I'm trying to decide if this is going to be a series. Until I know for sure, then I can't properly design the cover. I began writing the second book, but my head can't get in the story with all this other Mageri stuff going on close to the deadline.
Be sure to LIKE my FACEBOOK page! Fun giveaways will be happening in the near future.
As with the previous two books, I'm nervous about what the betas' reactions. Each time *I* read it I swear I get sweaty palms and butterflies, and I already know what's going to happen..lol I'm not afraid of critical remarks, because I got a few on Impulse regarding the Adam storyline. A book would be completely unsatisfactory if there were no controversy, mayhem, and unpredictable moments. I've seen a review or two where a reader was so upset that Silver didn't "choose" Adam in "Twist" they gave up, which is a shame. I know we get attached to how we think a book should go, but I adore the readers who still press on because they love the characters on an individual level and want to see where things are headed.
And on THAT note, I'm very excited. I think there are a lot of things going on in this book that are going to connect you with the previous books by answering questions, they're going to present more questions, and a thing or two just might make your head explode.
Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Mageri is. You have to see it for yourself. All I'm offering is the truth; nothing more.
So, are you going to take the blue pill, or the red pill?
No, you are not going to find out the whole thing wasn't real or a dream..lol
I just love that scene in the Matrix.That movie never gets old for me.
Wow, and a huge thanks to everyone who continues to hang around between these book releases! I know there's a million other books out there to read, but it's so cool you keep stopping back in to check up on me and see how things are going.
