Hello, hello! I see that some of you/most of you have received your copies of Under The Rug. Brings a smile to my face, I tell ya. If you haven’t received it yet, you should be getting it soon. And thank you all again for your patience. I hope you enjoy reading the book as much as I enjoyed birthing it. Ouch!
Anyway, as you all know, Amazon reviews are huge, especially for new authors trying to break the market. I’ve had a couple 5 STAR’s come in so far and they are MEGA! So, thank you to those readers for taking the time, and I’m so glad you enjoyed the book.
For those of you who haven’t finished yet, or have not received your copies yet, I humbly ask that when you are finished reading Under The Rug, would you be so kind as to leave a review here: https://www.amazon.com/Under-Rug-Todd-Wonkka/dp/1947848852/ref=sr_1_fkmr1_1?keywords=under+the+rug%2C+a+novel+Todd+S.+Wonkka&qid=1573757458&sr=8-1-fkmr1
Thank you all so much for the love. And I look forward to your Amazon review of Under The Rug.
What’s up everyone! Just a reminder that tomorrow, Under The Rug officially releases. After cataloging to sites like Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and GoodReads, ya’ll should be getting your copies by sometime toward the end of next week, depending on what zip code you’re in. Once again thanks for your support and I hope you enjoy Under The Rug as much as I enjoyed writing it. One other reminder—please make sure to update your address through your inkshares account so your copies don’t got to the wrong place. In case some of you have moved.
Also, just a reminder—since its been such a long process—to update your mailing address through your inkshares account. Just in case you have moved since you’ve pre-ordered your copy of Under The Rug.
It’s official! Under The Rug releases October 22nd. I look forward to hearing what you all think. Thanks for the continued and patient support.
All edits are completed, and info/images for the book cover is ready to go. Inkshares is telling me that backers should be getting their copies of Under The Rug by early fall—fingers crossed. I more than thank you for your patience. I know it’s been a long road. Thanks for sticking with me on this arduous process. Talk to you in the fall.
What’s up my patient supporters. Production on Under The Rug has been slightly delayed—a project in front of mine in the queue was held up a bit. But worry not. I’ve been informed that things should be moving forward for Under The Rug by late May/early June. I’m a little bummed, sure, but I’m trusting the process, and, well, it’s kind of how the publishing world goes. I hear remodeling homes sheds a similar skin.
Anyway, while waiting on Inkshares to get Under The Rug out ASAP, I’m not sitting on my ass. Well, I have been sitting on my ass, but I’ve been writing while sitting on my ass. The new book is called, "Counterpunch", a story about four friends: brain injured Jack, his best friend Rodney, Tommy the Asian priest/world famous stand up comedian, and Jose the gay latino mixed martial arts champion. Led by Rodney, the four friends set out to make all their childhood dreams come true, but neither of them can do it without the help of the others. It’ll make you feel happy, sad, and pleasantly appalled. Good day.
Talk to ya’ll real soon. As always, thanks for the love.
First, thank you all for your patience. Writing, editing, and then finalizing a project that you care about takes a lot of work, and a lot of time. It’s important to bring justice to the project by being patient, which at times was difficult as I had all of you—my backers—on my mind. I can’t wait to get this novel into your hands. But, I took my time, worked it through thoroughly, hired a reputable editor, Caroline Tolley, and turned my early drafts of Under The Rug into something I’m very proud of. And, the process is now moving forward as I’ve just submitted my manuscript to Inkshares.
Now, Inkshares will still have their editors take a look at it. But because I’ve had a professional editor already work on this with me, the process will move much faster than normal. The next few things I will be submitting to the Inksahres team are things like book cover, layout, author bio, etc. Soon Inkshares will communicate to me a realistic date for the release of the book. Rest assured however, that you, my backers, will receive your copies before it hits the bookshelves. That’s it for now. Will let you know something when I know something.
The second round of edits has been completed for Under The Rug. On to the third and final round. I can’t wait to get it in your hands.
Quick update on Under The Rug. We are into phase 2 of content and development editing. It’s looking good. After this round, we’ll go through a line edit(line by line, cadence, sentence structure, etc.), then it’s on to the copy edit(punctuation, grammar, etc.); that’s the final stage. Once again, thank you all for the love and support.
