Hello all,

Yeah, it’s been a couple of weeks since I posted anything.  Things have been pretty busy at work, and there are the holiday preparations, and I can make all sorts of other excuses.  But the fact is that I’ve just been off my game and haven’t been keeping up with my blogging.  Sorry guys.  But I’m trying to get back into the swing.

Streets of Payne is coming along and it looks like the cover work is almost done.  You know, when I published HPM last year, I had the book completed and ready to go for several weeks before it actually published.  The hold up was the cover.  I was so new to the business that I didn’t fully understand all the various pieces that comprise the publishing puzzle.  I concentrated so much of my effort on the writing, editing, and publishing aspects that I didn’t realize I had overlooked overseeing the cover art.  So when I got to the end of the “assembly line”, I found there was a key ingredient missing.  Talk about your “DOH!” moments.  :shock:

This time around, I’m going to have the opposite problem (if you can call it a problem).  The cover work is almost done.  The artwork is pretty freaking awesome, and I can’t wait to do a cover reveal once the finishing touches are in place.

Unfortunately, the book is still at least a couple of months away from being completed.  And you don’t want to do a public cover reveal months before the book is ready to publish.  Do that, and it’s like a big tease for people.  It’s just cruel, isn’t it?  Guess I need to think about how to approach the whole thing.  If you have any suggestions, please don’t hesitate to tell me.  Either comment here, or you can email me privately at jlb.author@gmail.com.

On another front, I’m participating in a Red Adept Select giveaway.  Follow the link and enter, or enter on Facebook for the chance to win all ten of the Kindle books listed.  Ten books!

Go, enter.  And I wish you all the best of luck.

Be safe everyone.  :waving:
