After a couple of difficult weeks with my writing, everything appears to be back to normal! I've added another 1500 words to my WIP and I my confidence is growing with each chapter I complete. My word count is now over 18 000, so it is really coming along well.
I am now at a stage where I need to think about the front and back covers for Blue Eyes Behind the Mask. I have written two blurbs, and will be writing a couple more in the coming days to get the right one. As for the front cover, I have a few ideas brimming away, but nothing set in stone just yet.
This stage of writing and publishing a novel is like the home straight of a marathon. The finish line is in sight, but I am still considering my publishing route; should I self-publish like I did with Heartbound, or try the mainstream route again? Or maybe something completely different. Time will tell.
It is a really exciting time for all my writing plans. Everything is coming together and I am confident that Blue Eyes Behind the Mask will perform as well as Heartbound. After all, it has been four or five years in the making!
