The Search for the Unicorns – and why I haven’t been annoying you with the impending launch

So here I am. I wanted to give you all weekly updates. Instead, I’ve been giving you weakly updates.

But this is because I am quickly finding out how grueling the last part of self-publishing is.

Normally, when I publish comics, the front end is the most difficult, I’m working on artwork and writing. At the end of comic creating, all you are doing is simple paste up and layout and it’s only a few pages (comparatively)

With novels? There is a lot of tedious details, like making sure all of the punctuation is correct. Please note, in this novel, I think my punctuation is broken. I will remedy this in future updates. Yep, just like gaming software. But it’s so much more than that. There are just so many little things that need tweaking.

At any rate, I’m planning on having it submitted to Ingram Spark and Create Space this week (along with other e-retailers). Because I haven’t released a novel before, I don’t know how long it’s going to take for it to actually go live. Which is why I haven’t done a big fan fare. This novel is my test run to see what the process is. Once, I’ve figured out the process, then I will be making all kinds of noise for when the next novel comes out.

Yes, this is me basically rambling and I will likely ramble at you again tomorrow. 🙂

Gearing Up

On August 1st, The Search for the Unicorns will be launching. It’s exciting, I’m not going to lie. This will be my first time self-publishing a literary novel. I will be focussing on the process of getting it out and distributed.

I figured that I’d just do this little mini-update to let everyone know what’s going on and ….well…. Stuff!

Once I have more things I will be doing more posting. If you have subscribed to the newsletter, you were one of the lucky people to get to see a rough sketch of the cover!

That will be one of the next things that I hope to be posting here in the next week, so stay tuned!
