I was so pleased to discover I could place Darkness’ handwriting in to the Kindle version, it took a bit of doing but I managed it. 

Then came another problem which I had no idea if it was their converter or what was having trouble rendering some of the stresses I had on peoples names, making the line appear as nothing but this □□□□□□, to solve the issue I decided to take the stress off, which in my view made the name look quite strange, but at least the line of text was showing again.

I am still waiting for part one to appear on iBooks and Google Play once they appear I will post links. Once everything becomes available then I am going to start to really promote it. In the meantime if anyone would like a PDF of paperback copy of the story please get in touch.

 

Now it is all completed I have been taking a little break and started a fairy garden project which in itself is going to take months to do. I will also be getting some of the side stories completed on Litnet, for example Narsus, Gabriel and the snow bear, which I am currently  writing the next part, that might be the final part, I’ll just have to see what happens. Then I thinking about returning to The adventures of Bǎihé and Liúxīng to carry it on where is left off and also post another one in the series Liúxīng and the mysterious sword.

Then pick a short story at random and post it on there to see what people make of it, because I have so many I have started but never finished, because of one reason or another. It would be nice to know if they are good enough to continue or just terrible giggle, which I don't think they are, just not that well written.

 

I am also still writing and sorting the rewrite of part two which at the moment has hit a bit of a wall  as I’m not sure about a scene I have created, so I’m going to be putting what I have done so far to my editor to see what he thinks and to see where we can go from there. I’m sure together we will be able to sort it, which in turn will get things moving again

It is so good to have a physical copy of the story in my hands. The cover has turned out great, I am very pleased with the way the photograph of the Chakra Pendulum looks on the back of the book with Agito looking up at it.

The handwritten parts have come out looking great.

 This copy will be going to a friend to, one save her printing it out and two see what she makes of the final version now it has been through a grammar checker.

Some people do not seem to understand this is a big deal for an author to make the decision to completely rewrite an entire story which will be, come next March, 20 years old. I am myself am not bothered how long it has taken me to get to this stage where I am at now, I am so happy with the story, happy with the current writing style I am using and I know my proofreaders are enjoying it just as much as I am. 
This is why I am taking just a little longer to launch this rewrite as I would like to make sure it is as good as it can be. I am even thinking about putting it through the grammar checker again just to make sure there is nothing I have missed.

I am also currently working on the rewrite of part two which I have to say is coming along really well. I am really enjoying writing it. I am even beginning to think of a cover for it; I’ll have to see what I come up with.

 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.
