Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 246 – Dreams

“The best way to make your dreams come true is to wake up.”

Paul Valery

Thank you Spidey for that fantastic quote!

Firstly, I must apologise for the late Spidey entry today. I did indeed need waking from my dreams this morning, to the realisiation that I had not scheduled this post last night!

Too busy making dreams come true, to be honest, and tiring myself out (which, given my current state of health, is not that hard for me to do!) to stay awake long enough to write a post up, last night!

You see, yesterday saw the beginnings of one of my life dreams coming true.

You may have noticed, (and if you hadn’t, where on earth were you?) on my author blog, this blog, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, that my cover reveal went live yesterday.

Not only is this the beginning of my dream turning to a reality, but it is a poke up my backside too, and a reason for me to not procrastinate any longer.

No more dillydallying, and wishing that one day my book might just get out there, but now I have to do this!

I was overwhelmed by the reaction that the cover got, from both familiar names, and others who have been following me, or who happened to come across the image while checking out their social media.

So many of you, eager to read this precious baby of mine!

So, my next steps are to wait for my final editor check, hopefully with nothing more than a few silly spelling or punctuation issues, (fingers crossed, then format the book, finish writing the blurb, get the paperback dimensions to my fantastic cover designer, upload everything to KDP and set a publication date.

Still a bit of technical work to do, but you guys, my book will be out there soon!!!

And if you missed it, here is the cover for Marriage Unarranged. 😄

Designed by Kirsty McManus – She is awesome!

I’m going to be cheeky, and late to this one too, but since Linda’s prompt for this week’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday was Dreams, this post fits the bill perfectly (even though it’s been posted on a Sunday!)

So… tell me, what is your biggest dream right now?

Have a peaceful Sunday Peeps  And enjoy your week! ❤

Tuesday Poems For Writers #Inspiration – Editing Hell!

Another poem inspired by Lucy of Blonde Write More! This time we tackle editing!

Editing Hell!

Another word for editing
Could be simply - HELL
It's not enough to write a book
You need to rewrite it as well!

Blood sweat and tears go
Into every word you write
And the rereading and rewriting
Eats into every night

Your story - finally complete
You happily type 'The End'
Until you find a plot hole
It drives you round the bend!

Your beta finds a typo
You quickly get it fixed
Now to send to your editor
Will your story have them bewitched?

"Hmmm, not too bad, but change that bit
And sort out your point of view
I'm not to sure about this arc..."
Jeez, my story'll read like new!

"It's not a lot, just scrap those words
And these chapters too.
Write this instead, add more pizazz."
Original words left - a few

Weeks or months spent unpicking things
And stitching together again
I'll win this battle with my book
And the war too, with my pen!

Finally complete, though
It's not the tale originally planned
Still, another step closer to my dream
Of holding my book in my hand
