… it will be a quiet week on the website. While artists, editors, and authors are busy working at bringing you the thrills of the future (to paraphrase 2000AD comic), I shall be relaxing on vacation next week with my family, in a tent (and quite possibly in a puddle as river levels are high where we’re going).
Beta invites for the Badger’s Waddle beta reader team went out last night, and the first orders for beta copies went to the printers today. It’s a shame but the artwork, which is being painted by Dean Harkness, isn’t ready, so I’ve had to step in and make a stop-gap.
When I come back from vacation, one of my first tasks will be to organize the next beta reader team, which will be for Armand Inezian’s VampCon.
If you’ve not come across the Greyhart Press beta reader teams, the idea is that we give you an edited version of the book and you take a good look and tell us if you think there are any errors. To say thank you, we will send you the finished book with your name credited in the list of beta readers. If you want to be involved in the beta program, just leave a comment on the website.
In the second half of September, we will launch Badger’s Waddle, VampCon, The Last Sunset, and Unauthorized Contact (the second Skyfire book set in the same universe as Terminus), and some more poetry by Elaine Stirling (although we might squeeze that into August). We’re working hard on other titles too, and I expect to have several books moving into beta during September and October. In fact, we have so many titles that there will be a website redesign.
