Quickie Update

This post may be a little short as I'm trying to keep an eye on my Muse while he tackles tumbling a really large tree.  I needed to escape the heat and humidity for a few minutes and thought, hey, I need to write something on my blog.  Yeah, I talk to myself's when I get answers back that I start to worry. ;)

Anywho, I am in the thick of editing both Starward and Dangerous Moves at the moment.  I'm also in the process of updating Cressen Books website because guess what?.....Okay, I'll tell you....all books published by Cressen Books are now available on the Nook!!  WOOT!  So, now our books can be found on both Amazon's Kindle and Barnes & Noble's Nook...I'll leave links to each at the end of this post.

So, this means that the publishing business' website needs updating (again).  Yeah, that's a never ending chore.  Just ask any webmaster or anyone who has their own website or even blog for that matter.  Always something to tweak!

Oh, and before I forget, Starward's cover design is coming along nicely.  I may even have a cover reveal for you in the near future.  I hope you like it because I'm totally loving it!  It fits so well with the story.  But then again, my Muse and I wrote the story and are creating the cover together, so it better darn well fit! lol

I guess that's it for now.  The tree hasn't fallen yet and I don't hear anyone yelling "TIMBRE" out there, so all is good!  I hope everyone is having a wonderful and safe Memorial Weekend and I'll try to be back in the loop soon with more updates!

Oh, and here's those links:

Working on Edits

The first draft of Starward is officially done!!!  Yay!  *Throws confetti for added effect*  So, what does this mean?  Well, I am now in the process of going back through the draft and massaging various passages so that the entire book reads the way I want it to.  I'll also be reading for content to make sure I didn't leave anything out or forget to address anything along the way.  And, I will be working on cover concepts within the next few days.

I'm really excited about this book and the series that it will be introducing.  I've always wanted to write something in the sci-fi realm and am having a ball with this story and the characters!  Plus, it's a collaborative effort on both my and my Muse's parts since we are actually co-authoring this series.  So, I'm really looking forward to sitting down and reading through the entire story to see what we've come up with and making adjustments here and there along the way.  I think it's going to be AWESOME!

Okies, with that said, I am also trying to focus on getting edits done for the fourth book in The L & L Mysteries, Dangerous Moves.  This book already has a well-rounded first draft, so the editing phase is more of a tweaking.  But, I still cannot say for sure when this book will release to Kindle.  I'll keep everyone posted, though!

And, I am also attempting to upload the books for the Nook.  Crossing my fingers, I hope to actually have this accomplished within the next week.  This is another piece I will definitely keep everyone posted on, since I am aware that some people have the Nook vs. the Kindle and I want to make these books available to as many people as possible!

I believe that's all my news for now.  Have a wonderful week and Happy Reading, everyone!
