Novel enters pre-production stage

With the copy edit completed yesterday, pre-production starts. Cover and interior design, then formatting for print and ebook. My work on this book is pretty much done, just approvals of designs.
Until then, I can focus on writing GKS 2 which is exciting.  However, once the first novel is done, the marketing efforts will be intense and will be time-consuming.

Research trip to California

Surfers at Steamer's Lane, Santa Cruz,  CA. Curious about what book 3 is about?

Research trip to California

Outside Maverick's surf shop in Half Moon Bay, CA.  We're near the infamous Maverick's surf area, known for 20+ ft waves in the wintertime.

Starting to roll!

Pre-production is underway.   First on the list is cover and interior design.   I've decided on the person who will do the cover; quite the talented guy.  I have an appointment tomorrow with the director of book design to get that set up.  I'm excited!
