animated-balloon-image-0033I am so pleased to have Master Guardian Part Three Book one Secrets uncovered completed

It has already been through my editor Kiyoshi, twice, he decided to take out a few scenes to help the story flow better and helped me put in the scene with baby Elliot celebrating his second birthday, told me oh you have got to put that in, he is so kawaii. My editor was laughing at him calling everyone who is not his ma or grandparents aunty and a soft toy is baby regardless of what it is and found him to be adorable when he is saying, présent, présent and sitting on his mother’s knee so he can help him to open it. He told me he really comes across as toddler and cannot wait to see more of him in the next book.

The book has now gone to the proofreader, I hope she likes it just as much as Kiyoshi has as it kept him gripped from beginning to the end.

All I need to do now is come up with a cover and blurb for the back which grabs the reader. But the weather is starting to get too hot and sticky in the day to work, 28c but feels more like 30c. So I am only working first thing and at night when it is a little cooler. I just hope this heat won’t last too long, roll on winter.

Editing all sorted, I am now able to work on the Halloween scene which has Guardian along with his brothers, Shinma Darkness and Celest along with some children carving pumpkins which would be something new for Shinma as the Japanese don’t do this.

Kiyoshi said, That is going to be fun experience for him. But I must say it is odd for Gādo’s family to be celebrating it with none of them being American.

 

I replied, Hai that is true, but Halloween has been a tradition in England for a long time now so of course the family will join in with the village, plus Chris and Yiska love decorating the inside of the hallway to make it look like it straight out of a horror movie.

Kiyoshi お見事

He also liked the idea if tick or treaters coming to the door as this also does not happen in Japan, he said again Shinma is going to find the whole night really interesting.

 

Once this scene is completed we will be decidingweather or not to put in the bonfire scene or leave it for the next book as, but lead the first one into it. We will make the decision once we get there as we don’t want the books getting too big.

 It is so good to have my dear editor Kiyoshi back as I was without him all through May with him being busy sorting a romance, something he does not like doing. Since he has been back we have been taking the time to go through the first book in the trilogy, after I told him I wasn’t sure about it and I don’t know how to finish it so it flows into the next book.

 

Kiyoshi a few days ago informed me one scene involving Yiska and Shinma had him in stitches, he told me when Shinma called him, you Bloodhound had him walking around his office laughing so much his boss came in to find out what was going on. The problem is out of context when no one knows the scene we are talking about, people just look at us baffled.

Kiyoshi said he could picture the scene so will, when Yiska found Shinma in the game shop, the Vampire all crouched and the Dreamer stood there with his hands on his hips, asking him where have ya been for the past two centurie?  Why haven’t ya been in touch?

I added, oh he won’t give Shinma time to answer before he asks the next question.”

Kiyoshi, (lol) I can see him being like that.

He also informed me there is a nice balance between scenes being all serious to ones which have him in stitches. This makes me very happy.

There are some things to sort out and once they are all sorted it will be off to the proofreader to see what she makes of it.

I am so pleased with how quickly the first book of the trilogy is coming along. It will not be long now before I am completing it, just got to write the Halloween, Bonfire scenes and come up with an ending so it flows nicely into the next book. Then I will take a little brake whilst my editor and proofreader go through it, to hopefully come up with a title and front cover, and also decide if I need to add any internal illustrations.

I have also been writing another side story to accompany the first book, I am not going to say anything about it, as reveal too much of what is happing in the novel.

One thing I must say is there is not going to be much translation as I hope the reader will be able to work out what is happening from the context and most of the Japanese and Mandarin have been in the series since the beginning. Kiyoshi was surprised to hear I will be throwing in some Turkish because this is Chris’ grandmother Poseidon main spoken language, fans will know this from the side story Poseidon and Chris encounter.

I am so pleased to have all three side stories for the first book in the trilogy sorted, my editor and proofreader really enjoyed them, they both really liked Misty mountains secret. I cannot thank them enough for all their help.

 

I am currently working hard on the first book with Gaylin Yiska as the central character until of course Shǒuwèi comes home, but in away I can see them both sharing the position, more like pushing each other off the spot.

I am still planning each book as I go and jotting down notes what I need to cover in each one. Also I need to see what interesting front covers I can come up with. I am aiming to get all three done before my birthday in September.
