Re-Write of Book 1 Complete
I have an announcement! This morning, I finished the draft of my re-write of book 1! I've been trying to get book one right since I first came up with this story idea when I was nine(it, of course, has evolved and is a much better story); when I sent the version I'd written at age 10/11 to a publisher and got a rejection letter(they were very nice about it and even hand wrote something on the typed letter, which is rare) I decided the book needed to be upgraded and, looking back, it was SUCH a good idea, this version of the book it two billion times better.
So now, I have all five books in the first series in draft form! The time for editing is ready to begin! I Oh, and of course, after that, I can write the second series which I promise is going to be awesome ;) :D. I have secured an editor(with the help of a college professor I am friends with) who I will employ once I read through this draft of book one to make sure everything lines up how I want it to and is as grammatically correct as I can make it.
I really hope that people will enjoy my book series and come to like the characters as much as I do :)
For those of you who don't know, my book series is in the science fiction genre; its sub-genres are that of a Space Opera, Soft/Social Sci-Fi, and Military Sci-Fi with a psychological study, action and adventure sprinkled in there :) It's written in third person and revolves around a teenage(16 at the moment) girl protagonist(she isn't your typical teenage girl protagonist, which I am really proud of :D) as well as the main villain(and his sister) and the girl's two friends(one boy and one girl); several other characters get added to the cast, but these are the people we start out with :)
Once the book is published, I will make write a big post on my blog about it; I'm also going to write to several Book Review blogs and ask them to review them(I'll also do interviews with the ones that offer it). Another thing I plan on doing is taking screen shot images of myself as the lead so you can get an idea of what the characters look like, how they dress, and such. I might even make a book trailer :)
I hope you all, if you read it, enjoy it :D
