Seeing Red …

Pack your bags and go to Panama. Having recently shortened and revamped one of my novels, Eternal Infinite, I love Tom’s revision breakdown. This should be helpful for anybody wanting to do the same. After my change to the interior of E.I., I’m still in the process of adding an image on the original cover. Making changes to a book is a long process, but well worth the efforts.

The Red Pen is mightier ... The Red Pen is mightier …

In a blog post last year, I said I’d be revisiting my books to produce updated or revised versions. Whether the idea works or doesn’t, I believe it’s all about knowing whether the book is good enough – or not.

In the case of the book I’m highlighting in this post, the story took me four months to write, and eight months to amend by using my method of leaving it aside for alternate months.

It has taken me two weeks of non-stop effort to revise what has been out there for a couple of years.

I posted a request for opinions on the Facebook page of the Indie Author Support and Discussion group. One of my quandaries was whether or not to produce a banner on the cover when I’d completed my revised work. The general feedback was superb, as expected.

  1. Many thanks for the reblog Pam. It’s nice to know I’m not alone in trying this sort of tactic to breathe new life into a project which was holding its own, but might be better presented now. 🙂
