I'm so happy to announce that my first draft of Legend of Fayre Sea is finally done. It took some work to chain myself to my laptop on the last two days of writing, but I did it. It's very rough though and my proofreader and editor have some work to do. Meanwhile, this is the time I begin making my marketing materials and posts. It's also a good time to do artwork for the book including the book's blurb and cover.
If you want to take a peek at the blurb I have come up with, here it is. I welcome any suggestions and comments. There is so much going on in this book, it was very hard to get it all down in an enticing paragraph or two. I have about 145 words here.
Does this make you want to read the book or do I need to work on this some more?
