A Company of Moors Is Approved (prt 2)

Though approved, it will take time for sites and companies to make the title a part of their catalog. So, we all gotta wait. This part ain't my fault.

A Company of Moors Is Approved

The final edits are finished. The book is approved. The printer and distributors have been notified. Availability will probably come Thursday or Friday of this week. Like any kind of examine, there comes a time when you have to just hand it in. But, we're confident the final edit is spectacular. There will be more news to announce as the week continues.

Calling All Cars

This weekend will be one big wait.  All things for A Company of Moors are in order.  The last four years (3 for research, 1 to write) all come down to next week. A Company of Moors will have its worldwide release.  I am becoming flooded with e-mails from people asking about the specific date.  I just know it'll be next week.  The Kindle version of A Company of Moors will be available a day or two after the titles physical release.

We're still awaiting 100% approval, and in the meantime, heavy promotion is underway on all social networking sites, and press releases have been pushed to the proper channels for blogtalk and radio interviews. and for other business.  All outlets, distributors, and wholesalers have been contacted.  All information has been uploaded to the proper channels for the purpose of distribution and product information.

So here we are. Waiting.  The weekend.

Nervous Wreck

I have (what I hope is) the final proof for A Company of Moors in my hand. Looking through it nervously to see if all edits were picked up. Looks good so far. Book will be available worldwide sometime next week (if all is well).

The Walkthrough

The final edits have been applied. To make certain that the manuscript is immaculate, all edits will be looked over to make sure they have been applied correctly.  This last edit was just a proofread, only looking for glaring errors--misspelled words, glaring grammar problems, and continuity. Otherwise, the flow of the story is smooth. The first 'season' has been looked over, and it is immaculate. Later today, after some work with otha people's news, the rest of the book will be looked at. The printer will have the final copy either tonight or early tomorrow morning.

I am very excited.

Another proof will be ordered, looked through, and the book will then (hopefully) have an okay for release.

Almost Ready

Down to the last two chapters. The final edit of A Company of Moors is coming to a close. The 17th century, North African, Black Moorish epic is almost ready for release. Thanks for your patience.

In other news, Ancient-Art-of-Facts has been updated with a company commercial.  The new cover for 12 Stories High is featured, as well as Code-47, though the cover has not changed on sites like amazon and so forth.  But I think the change should come in a couple days or so.  The proof edit for 12 Stories High is still going, and should be concluded by the end of this month, with a release in the middle of August (among A Company of Moors' promotion) or at the end of August.

The re-vamp for the site was initially not going to come until A Company of Moors' release, with a new commercial stating the book's release. But, since I now have a Youtube channel, I'm just going to throw the commercial up there (and other networking sites).

Thursday, July 1, 2010


161 pages are left in the final editing process for A Company of Moors.  July holds within its days the release for the book (crosses fingers).  In the last few days the project has been out of my hands, with the exception of approving the edits and applying them.  I have focused more attention on 12 Stories High's proof edit, hanging strong in the middle of the book and having applied the first half of the proof edits.

But to keep myself in touch with A Company of Moors, I do go back to the proof, and though its scratched with red ink edits, I read.  I'm anxious for this book to be released.  Not too long to go.
