Monday, Monday, Monday.
I’m back to writing this week after all the fun last week, what with pain meds knocking me into a parallel universe and ending up in hospital with an excruciating migraine.
Well, I say back to writing…last night I got thinking about the cover for The Next Stage. I know, I know, I’ve archived all the files, and I should be moving on and concentrating on new things, but I got it stuck in my head, so I had to do something about it.
I was thinking that although I do like the simplistic cover, I’ve always felt that something was missing. I didn’t want to move away from simple – simple seems to be what my covers are all about – but I felt like I could make it a bit better, and maybe doing so would make a few more people take a look at what it’s all about.
So, this morning I did a bit of messing about with colours, fonts and images and I’ve come up with something a bit different.
This is what it looks like now;
I’m just uploading and changing the cover art in the various different places that the book is available, so hopefully, soon you should see a difference on their site pages. I’ll also update on the Books page on this blog.
Now that they’re all changed – or in the process of changing – I can now get back on to actual writing.
I’m currently focusing on my ghost story at the minute, but I’ve also had some thought about a story that is tentatively called Dreams. Dreams will be another sci-fi story, but it may (or may not) have some horror elements too. I’ve not done a great deal on it so far, having only written the first chapter, but I’ve got a lot of ideas of where I can take the story. I guess we’ll see how it turns out.
Reviews for The Next Stage are still steadily coming in, and I’m happy to say that they’re still all 5-stars. I’ve also had a few ideas of where I might be able to take a possible prequel or sequel to this book, so keep an eye out for updates on that too.
Anyway, that’s it for the blog today. Hopefully, I’ll have more updates on Wednesday.
