Miscorrection 3 Writing Begins - Follow Along!

On Monday, I plan to finally begin writing Miscorrection 3. I'm way behind schedule on getting this started due to being sick for a month.


But that's okay. It's given me time to consider my approach to the third and final book in the trilogy. I think I've got it. But honestly, once I start writing it, I might find it doesn't work. That's the case with any story, which is what makes writing scary and fun all at the same time.


For Miscorrection 3, I thought I would do something unique as a way of promotion. I want to give readers and writers out there a chance to see my writing process. To do this, I'm going to use Google+ Hangouts. Each week, I will create a hangout where you can see my ugly mug and watch as I write Miscorrection 3. This will be on one day Monday through Friday.


I think doing this will benefit readers because they can see how a writer works. At least me, I know all writers have their own methods for sitting down to write.


I also think it can benefit writers, maybe giving them ideas on methods they could use to write.


Here's what you can do to follow all of this:


First, follow me on Google+, Facebook, or Twitter. I'll post something to those places when I begin writing.


Also, subscribe to my blog. I'll try to put a post up 1-2 days before the hangout to let you know it's coming. Again, this will happen once a week. Just click the "I'm Awsome! Sign me up!" button to the right to do this.


Bookmark the Miscorrection 3 Public Access file on Google Docs. Here's the full link: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1r9uVOa8EE0LNk3cPyL7vxFIRD_qtfrXMQ2Vl-LY2n-c/edit


This file is set for the public to view and comment on.  If you miss the hangout, I'll leave whatever I wrote up for others to read until the next session.


This should be a lot of fun, and I hope you'll join me on this unique promotional approach.


See you tomorrow!

Designing a Book Cover - The Fourth Layer

 In my last post, I spoke about "The Third Layer" in my process of designing book covers. That was adding the author name. I also likened layers one through three to being a cake. It's baked. The layers are stacked. And it's edible. But in order to entice someone to eat the cake, the final decorations—icing, color, flowers, etc.—need to be added. So what can I do with my current book cover to spruce it up? The Fourth Layer of course! This is the crucial and final layer. This is where everything comes together to form the complete book cover. The steps I use below are my own. You'll need to determine what is needed for your cover when you get to this layer. Only you know your book. Only you know what's important. The Fourth Layer is where you can get creative. First, I want to continue with the older adventure book type feel. With The Legend of Kyd Lumin , I want people to think it's a book not published in 2021 but rather, published sometime in the 80'

Designing a Book Cover - The Third Layer

In my last post, I spoke about "The Second Layer" of designing a book cover, which is making sure you title stands out well.  Now we head to "The Third Layer". This one probably will seem obvious and it complements "The Second Layer" . It is your author name. It's important that your author name be positioned and sized correctly. There are a few approaches to this. For well known authors—for instance Stephen King or James Patterson—having the author name prominent and big on the cover is good. The reason is, their names are so popular that the author name sells the book more so than the book title sells it. As a self-published author you could use this thought process for your cover to give the impression that you are a popular author. Of course, your mileage will vary with this approach. The other option is to not allow the author name to dominate the content. So you would want it to be smaller than the title. You could even make it barely noticeable
