I’m proud of all of my releases. Some of the writing is better than others, especially as I’ve matured. Some of the covers are better than others as well, too.
And sometimes you just want to change a few things, right? I know the fun of being an indie self-published author is getting to tweak and make changes. If something doesn’t work you can try something new.
Case in point: I wrote the first Dying Daysnovella many years ago. Many. Before I was as confident an author as I am now, and will someday be more in the future.
After really looking at my career from not only a creative angle but from a business angle as well (thanks to my wife!) I have decided on doing a couple of things new in 2016.
I’ll be doing a minor rewrite on Dying Days and Dying Days 2. Nothing major, just another round of edits on both as well as tightening up some of the prose. The story will remain the same but it will hopefully flow a bit better.
Also… I will be redoing all of the covers as well as the cover for Darlene Bobich: Zombie Killer. it will all flow together and, at the end of the series (whenever that may be) putting the covers side by side will hopefully tell a story.
The print books will go from trade paperback 6″x9″ to a more manageable 5″x8″ size, which has a much better look to me and looks like an actual professional book. Again, new covers that will tell a story.
I even have a live model who looks like the Darlene in my head and hopefully in your mind, and she’ll star on each cover as they are released. In early 2016 the first new cover will be unleashed and I’m very excited to be updating this project and eventually getting all of the new covers in the series out to fans old and new.
