The title says it all. Editing for Volume 4 has been completed, which means I am one (huge) step closer to publishing Volume 4!
I hope you understand what is going on in the grand scheme of things; I hope you understand how big this is, not just for me, but for the overall series of The Golden Lands. The first arc has been finished. This means that the entire series, as it now exists, will be undergoing a sort of transformation, as if in honor of the first arc being complete. The cover of Volume 1 (which is, by the way, still free as an eBook) has been changed/updated, and I intend to implement similar revisions to the other covers as well. Volume 1 is also undergoing more vigorous editing…it shouldn’t change a whole lot, but the general idea is that Volume 1, the place where all of this began, will be given a new, fresh, professional feel.
New ideas are springing into my mind like flowers in spring. “Soul Bleeder”, the mini/background series that was supposed to be like “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” (but in The Golden Lands, of course), as of now, will become its own mini book series. Writing a blog-series just doesn’t reach far enough, and it doesn’t make “Soul Bleeder” official enough. Thus, turning it into a book series will ensure that I give “Soul Bleeder” the attention it deserves.
More artwork should be on the way too; I plan to make a poster in honor of the first arc. It’s almost like the cover for a season of a TV show, containing epic shots of all the characters, but combined into one photo. Volume 5’s cover is also on the way…it should be done fairly soon. And, although I’m not sure if this will actually happen, Volume 3 might get an entirely different cover…maybe with *cough* Bernard on the front.
TONS of stuff happening, people. Get hype and spread the word!!!
