 I am so pleased it has only taken me 5 days to get all the punctuation and grammar sorted in Master Guardian Part One. It has now gone back to my editor and proofreaders, to see what they make of my skills. I have had the help of an online grammar checker, called scribens.com. It is the best one I have found as it checks everything, from spelling mistakes to punctuation. Also where to put in the semicolon, as I am terrible at working out the best place to put them. I am not rushing to get this rewrite published, as all of us would like it look professional as we possibly can. I have to admit, I do have a good feeling about this one. I feel really positive, and it does not matter to me how many times I have to go through it, before it is perfect. Kiyoshi has already told me to give myself a pat on the back, as I have a grabbing cover and blurb. He also informed me, he thinks the punctuation is really good. But don’t just take my opinion, see what the other proofreaders make of it. Nonetheless, you have done a great job, and I too have a good feeling about it. As it shows in the pages how much time and effort you have put into it.

Yeah, I am going to have a nice little break whilst they are all reading it and look up free ways I can get the series noticed more noticed.

This morning I completed the back cover image for Master Guardian part one. I am so pleased with the way Agito has turned out, he is really looking like he has just awaken and sat up.  

Back cover

The next thing I need to do is scan them both in and then come up with a background which makes them stand out to attract the reader and a good blurb on the back which also entices the people to want to read the story, this is what I have come up with, An old friend calls on Guardian, Darkness and Celestial requesting their help to capture his brother, who is once again under the control of a tyrant who sent him eighteen years ago to try and kill an innocent mortal girl. Except this time around things are a little different...

It may need a bit of tweaking, I’ll just have to see what people make of it. One thing I will say it is nice to see everything is coming together

I am so pleased to be making a start on the cover for the all new rewrite of Master Guardian Part One, all I have got to do is finish of the jewellery and the shading and it will be done, then I will be able to sort out the back cover with Agito looking all suspicious of the Chakra pendulum coming towards him.

I have also been enjoying writing an all new version of Part Two which I have already retitled The Furtiveness Puppet Returns, as I feel this fits better with the story, as the puppet always tries to avoid notice or draw attention to himself. I of course will be also doing a new cover for it, one which hopefully will make people curious to find out what it is all about. I have to say it is nice to finally be doing the stories I have always wanted to produce but was a little unsure about how people would take to my kind of writing stile, I have to thank Litnet because that site has proven to me, it may be unconventional but people seem to loving it, because it is different it makes nice refreshing change.

A fortnight ago I made the decision to completely rewrite Master Guardian Part One, after my editor and I were looking at the iBook version of the Anniversary, both of us came to the same conclusion one it is not very gripping from the word go, two the village name was hard for my none English readers to pronounced so it has been changed to Rìluò (Sunset) Village. We also noticed it no longer fitted with not only the side stories but also the trilogy, as my writing stile has dramatically improved since I wrote that old version. One thing I did confess to him, even I find that old version hard to read and I’m the one who wrote it, that’s not a good sign

This new version I decided put in all the crystals the gods use to aide their abilities, also a crystal is sometime what a guardian of the other realm would give them. Dreamers use certain crystals in the stories to detect from spirits to Demons, readers will know this from the side stories.

Now it is completed I have handed it over to my editor and proofreaders, I am so glad this time around I have three more people reading it as this will give me a wider review and more feedback before I go ahead and publish it.

Whilst they are going through it I am currently working on a rewrite of part two as it has dawned on us Josh should not be in the car with the others because Annihilation Deities are incredibly heavy and there is no way a K Class little people carrier would withstand his weight. This has made me relook at the old notes of his character, and found something I have never put in before, he not only runs everywhere at incredible speed, but he also has help from something which Kiyoshi was not expecting to read and just said, all excited oh yeah you’ve got to put it in. So that is what I am doing. Another thing is it should not be Josh dealing with the Demon that should be Yiska as Dreamers are the only ones who are capable of getting rid of such things as my fans will know from the side stories.

It is so great to finally have Book 2 of the trilogy completed.

My editorKiyoshi has been an absolute re-going through the entire book again after I retrieved an unedited version from iCloud, and in doing so he spotted some inconsistencies which he had not spotted before, where either the character only appears in one scene to never be seen again or were meant to be arriving but then never did. I think he has done a great job at blending the scenes so they fit better with the whole story and we decided the Huojin scene, has opened the doors to a possibly of a new side story. I was going to see what my proofreader says after she has read it, if there is a need to.

The short story I was working on before the little crisis I had with my laptop, The Storm has developed into two stories the second one is titled The missing prince or it might get changed to The vanished prince. Once that one is completed it will be handed to Kiyoshi to go through before being passed on the proofreader. It is going to be interesting to see what they both make of it and to find out if it is any good.

 

I will also be posting the final part of Hidden secret on Litnet, I am planning on starting to post other never before published stories on there to see what reaction they will receive as like I have said before they could be way better than I think they are.
