Today, since I have been so immersed in my edits for #destiny17, I figured that i would shorten the normal post, and do a #destiny17 updates post.
First of all
- I finished #destiny17 at 45,758 words, which I consider to be very underwritten, since I originally set a goal for 75,000 words.
- My story took a turn for the better with a GENRE CHANGE! The originally YA epic steampunk fantasy is now a YA dark urban fantasy! This also included name changes in characters and places as well as title names.
- I changed many plot points in this book, which I am currently incorporating into my novel.
So I am planning on revealing the novel officially in fall (September) of 2017, but I might do it earlier, depending on when I complete many of the major edits. I had some exciting news for the book, as I was able to get a cover designer to do my cover! (Yay!) and I am also being interviewed by a couple sites soon, which is super exciting! I’m probably going to put up a teaser trailer soon, whenever I get the time to make one, and probably some pinnable images to help build buzz (have you followed me on Pinterest yet? 🙂 )
I am so excited because I’m getting ready to start planning the official reveal, and I am also trying to finish up this round of major edits in about a month or two. I’ve got a lot of work ahead of me, so if you want to be the first to hear special updates about #destiny17, make sure to subscribe to my blog!
In HIS Joy,
