Book Update – November 3rd, 2016

I was hoping to have Cowboys and Dragons Book 2: The Dragon Riders available for purchase by now, but I am having a heck of a time getting the final formatting approved through CreateSpace for printing. Something happened behind the scenes that has made the printing approval process infinitely more challenging. What took twenty-four hours for my first book, and the proof copy of book 2, has now turned into a month of back and forth with level two support. The only issue has to do with an image at the very beginning at the books. For whatever reason, CreateSpace’s requirement for an image with a full bleed (or an image with no border) has changed, but the process for approving the images is different than the guidelines on their site, or what support says it should be.

So, unfortunately, my update is that I’m frustrated.

But I’m not going to leave you empty handed. Here is a new image of the book covers for both Book 1 and Book 2. After designing the cover for book 2, I felt I needed to up my game for book 1, so I redesigned the cover to match. I think overall both covers look significantly better and are aligned to the overall style for the middle-grade fiction genre.

Sorry for the delay. I hope to have something up and available soon.
