Well, the book is as done as I can make it for now. It’s already gone out to the beta readers who have Kindles and will go out by mail tomorrow to those who don’t. I hope to have the cover done by the time everyone reports back and be ready to do final proofreading and publish about October 1.
In the meantime, I’ve split the difference on the title and for now am using “Apache Unbeliever.” I don’t feel the way I did about Sing My Name about it, but I like it better than the two I mentioned in the last post. I thought of another title I rather liked in the meantime simultaneously with someone who’s already read it, but after trying it on for a while, I’m hard put to say but I think it felt too contemporary or something. So that’s where things are at the moment.
I spent yesterday at the library looking at images for a cover. Needless to say, doing that at home with my dial up line is not only trying but a massive waste of time. However, doing it at the library is a speedy taste of how the other half lives. My library has all its computers in a big square together and anyone who walks by sees what’s on your screen. So it was fine for Arizona landscapes, but boy, when I started looking for male/female and couple images, I felt like a female perv looking at low level porn!
So the cover is also up in the air at the moment, but I’m pursuing it faithfully. Hope everyone’s having a great long weekend. (Oh, and you international folks, hope you have a great start to your week.)
