Hello, Seekers! After many months, we are ecstatic to announce that our cover reveal will take place on Monday, October 17th, on the Armed with a Book blog. Venture over yonder to check out our cover on Monday, and while you’re there, explore the great reviews and other content from our reveal hosts.
We know some of you may also be curious about where things stand in our journey to publication. The cover reveal is a major external milestone in that process, but we’ve been quite busy behind the scenes! We made some major changes to the content of Trials of the Innermost (TOTI) that improved our story’s readability, pacing, and upped the tension throughout. These have been approved and we’ve moved on to the more granular line edits that catch all the little typos and other mechanics-related items we may have missed. From there, we’ll progress to formatting and getting proofs made, and then get our Advanced Reader Copies (ARCs) out, hopefully around New Year’s.
If that list of steps didn’t make it clear, publishing is a lengthy process. We hope being transparent about that and the stages involved will shed light on the grand mystery for our fellow aspiring authors, and help our readers understand why it takes a while to get our book into your hands! On that note, we are still targeting a release date in May 2023, but as with all things publishing-related, that could change. We’ll do our best to keep you updated and continue bringing you along with us on this exciting adventure.
Curious about what it’s like working with an indie press or have questions about getting published? We’d love to hear from you! Comment below or feel free to DM us on Twitter. Cheers!
