Alright, so we were nowhere near making it. But things aren’t all doom and gloom. I have been hard at work rebranding, re-editing and re-writing parts of the novel and will be self-publishing it.
For those who have supported Ward from the start, well you will receive special copies and my undying gratitude. Beta readers from all stages will get a special SPECIAL copy. How they will be made extra special, well I dunno at this stage. Maybe I’ll sprinkle pixie dust on them. Maybe i’ll put them in a (small) pile and Scrooge McDuck swim in them. NAKED.
WHAT?! He wears no pants, why do I have-- OK, fine. Party poopers.
Anyway, thank you to you all, and keep your peepers peeled. Currently about 2/3 done. I have 2 weeks off in January so hope to be done by Feb with new artwork and all.
Thank you to everyone who has followed and pre-ordered Ward of the South.
A HUGE thank you to everyone following and supporting Ward of the South. It’s a heady and nerve-wracking feeling to put your work up, as many here on Inkshares before me would know.
Whether it does well in the competition, reaches publication level or not - and at the risk of using cheesy cliches - I already feel like a winner.
Here’s to the roller-coaster to come!
