I'm quickly approaching the finish line (for editing anyway) on KILLING MEMORIES. About 35 pages left (plus a re-read of chapter one, which changed quite a bit from the first draft). I'm excited that it's almost done, but I still have a few things that I'm kind of worried about.
1. The cover.
2. The title.
Writer's Digest just did an excellent article on e-book publishing (their June issue). I was hoping for a detailed paragraph regarding cover do's and don'ts, but they basically say "hire someone." Well, I don't make enough money to hire anyone, so I'm sure my covers will be less than exciting, whatever I decide to do. While I do like the image of the little man with flowers between the woman's legs, I still want to books to have similar look. But, I don't want to be boring either. So, yes... this process is going to take more thought and consideration than I hoped it would.
And on a scarier conundrum... I'm not really sure that the title really fits the first book (or the other books for that matter). I've read the first three books and I'm almost done with Hostile Kisses. And if I'm really honest with myself, the titles (except for Hostile Kisses) don't really work. They're catchy in that I can call it the KM series and readers from FictionPress know them as that, but.... I don't know if I can come up with something else. This is something that I really need to focus on in the next few weeks.
If all goes well, I think I may be able to have the ebook ready by June 1.
