Files are starting to show up in my inbox for my new Black Orchid Chronicle, Beware the Spider.
The PDF version for printing paperback copies is here, done, finished, completed and FINAL. I’m just waiting on the cover for the print edition. It’s the last big “mystery” from the design crew.
I’ve seen the front cover, of course, but they can’t do the spine and back cover until they have a page count. With the PDF Final done, they’ll get the page count and produce a beautiful print cover. Can hardly wait.
Meanwhile, I have the ebook versions (.mobi and .epub).
Here are the first two-page spreads for the .epub version (for Apple iTunes, Nook and other non-Kindle readers).
On the right hand page above, notice the silhouette of the black orchid just above my name. It mirrors the orchid design from the cover and will appear on the spine of Beware the Spider and future Black Orchid Chronicles as the colophon, or publisher’s emblem.
It’s a nice touch, and I owe it to my designers at Damonza.com. Creative and totally professional all the way.
If you squint at the Table of Contents below, you can get an idea of where Beware the Spider starts and where it’s heading.
There is tweaking to be done, especially for the Kindle version (.mobi), but we’re getting close.
Thank you for your patience. And stay tuned here.
