Late last week, I received the final changes to the interior and cover of The Crying of Ross 128. It was more challenging than I thought it would be, only because even the smallest of changes took a week to turn around. I get it. The designer has a long list of clients. And perhaps I'm a bit more high maintenance than even I thought I'd be :)
In any event, both the cover and interior have been finalized. We're now moving on to establishing the distribution of the book - hard and soft cover - along with the electronic versions (kindle, kobo, etc.). While the administrative aspects of publishing are unfolding, I've been plotting the follow up novel to Crying and I'm very excited about the direction it's taking. There are lots of questions around the characters and their plot lines, which is normal at this stage, but overall, the story is one I'm looking forward to writing.
