Honestly, though the coronavirus pandemic has thrown me for a loop regarding my book projects, I still intend on releasing my short story collection in fall 2020.
The collection will feature three short stories previously featured in the Demonic Anthology Collection: “Demonic Wildlife,” “Demonic Household,” and “Demonic Carnival.” There will be a bonus short story, a never-before-published tale that was supposed to go into another anthology (unrelated to the Demonic Anthology series), but that project fell by the wayside.
So far I sent most of my short stories to my editor and got back the revised manuscripts. I have one more to email her, which I’ll do soon:-).
Soon, I will hire a book cover designer and typesetter for my book. I already have one in mind to approach. I have already begun penning my acknowledgements.
I envision the book as pocket-sized with a 4×6 trim. I comprised a Pinterest board with visual inspiration for my book cover. Notably, a few are of Neil Gaiman books. What I visualize for my cover is a mostly gray and black color scheme with a little red, using a soft-focus, watercolor painting. To learn more about what I see as my cover and examples using pins, visit the board.
As of now, I’m still working on a short list of titles for the collection. But keep an eye out for that update as well as updates on this overall book!
