I can’t believe it almost took me a year to get this book done. Mirror Earth 3 is finally becoming a reality.
So what was the delay?
Numerous things, as usual in modern life. A new job, problems with my Dad and his health (he’s 94 and his mind is slipping away rapidly), to mention just a few. Also keeping the story line intact, and keeping all the characters, places and facts from the previous books in place took up a lot of time. Not to mention the corners I wrote myself into and had to find a way out of (through imagination and rewriting complete chapters…)
But now it’s done, edited and I’m working on creating the actual files that become books. Making the e-book is the least effort so that will be done and available quite soon, perhaps even at the end of the week. Let’s hope so, because I know many of you are waiting for that one. And truth be told: so am I!
So now it’s about time that I divulge the proper title of the book and show you the cover that I designed for it. Oh – the cover. That was quite the trip also. Can you believe how difficult it can be to find good images for a cover? By which I mean images that aren’t only good-looking but that you can actually get permission for to use? Remember, not everything that is out on the internet is yours for the grab-and-use. There are things like copyright to remember.
Mirror Earth Network.
There you have it. That’s the title of the third Mirror Earth book. And here is the cover:
I’m proud of it. It shows so much of the story. At this point I already want to thank Will Forest for his help in making this book better through his edits and tips, Andy Golub for allowing me to use one of his bodypaint images on the cover, and Maurice “Mo” Smith for the same.
And thank you, everyone out there waiting, for your patience. Rushing a project like this is never going to make anything better.
I’ll do what I can to (at least) get the e-books out soonest. Paperbacks always require a little more work…
It took a while but it’s here. As of today, The Unsworth Manor Nudes is available in all the usual places!
Unsworth Manor, home of Cedric, Earl of Unsworth, his wife Margarete and their children. Margarete, of royal German descent, receives an invitation to visit her distant relative, Emperor Wilhelm II. They decide to make the journey. It will introduce them to a lifestyle that none of them had ever heard of before, but that will never leave them anymore.
I guess you all remember this image from before I went very silent. I was on a short vacation during which I wrote a lot of words for Mirror Earth 3 and Naked Crow 7. Some people wouldn’t call that a vacation but I wouldn’t want it any other way.
If the gods of publishing are with me, Naked Crow 6 will hit the e-shelves on June 1st of this here year 2017. Provided the lords of paper over at Createspace are willing, the paperback will become available a month later, so on July 1st. Also in 2017. In case you wondered.
So there you have it. The first of the next two months. If all goes well.
Yes, there is news about the Naked Crow series. Big news. News that comes in the form of the sixth book!
It’s going to happen quite soon now. The book is written, checked, corrected, edited, corrected even more and now I’m in the final stages of getting things together. Creating e-books, final judgment on the cover and creating the paperback version of the book. That last bit always takes terribly long so I’ll get the e-books out as soon as they’re ready. No need to make you wait for the paper version if you’re not waiting for that anyway. (Did you see what I did there? 😉 )
Right. Let’s have a look at that cover.
So there you have it. Title and image all in one. No details on the story yet, but you’ll find out soon enough now. I’m quite confident that I’ll be able to get the e-books out early June of this year, probably in the first week.
I hope this makes the approaching weekend and weeks somewhat more bearable. Thanks for your patience. It’s appreciated and will soon be rewarded!
