If you read the April Newsletter, you might be aware that I found myself in a bit of a low moment by the second half of March and I've found it hard to get out of it. I'm still pretty much in the same sort of mood, but I'm happy to report that I am managing it and I am slowly getting back into work routines.
Editing is going to take longer, but I need to get my confidence back. The cause of all this was that I wasn't happy with the way the book came out and I couldn't figure how to fix it but I am coming to terms with the fact that this was the story I wanted to write. Southwater Stories #1-3 were full of drama and despair even if they had a happy ending, and I didn't want the same type of tension for these new books.
I have also started to work on the cover and found a title. Not even a working one, but the final title.
The cover is only for reference. I'm beginning with the same design as the previous ones, just for guidance, but I'm hoping it will find its own style as I work with it and find an appropriate photo for the cover.
Editing, however, doesn't allow for a lot of fun anecdotes, so other than finding such amazing literary passages as 'he towel-dried his hair with a towel,' and other gems, there isn't a lot of backstage stories to tell.
However, I will leave you with one of the songs I listened to while I wrote this story. If you're interested to know what the lyrics mean, you can read it here, however, music has a language of its own and I don't believe it's absolutely necessary to understand every word. This is I Just by Wonho.
And this is the end of this month's Insight. If you're interested in an early copy of my next book in exchange for some honest feedback, you can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org about this or anything else.
I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek into my new work. If you want to hear more from me, you can follow me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
Good reading and see you in May!
