The–almost–weekly writing update.

The almost weekly writing update.

Week 33, 2023

Word by word, sentence by sentence! The first proof for the new KDP paperback edition arrived. The cream paper was the right decision and, even though a good part of the illustrations are gone, I feel much better about the result.

So so soooo slooooow.

The Fragments, The Spheres Book One – 2nd edition

The first proof arrived!

The Fragments first KDP proof (2nd edition)

KDP doesn’t allow to change the paper in a published edition, so I will launch the new paperback as a second edition with a new ISBN. It took me a while how to figure out how to best do this … there is still so much I need to learn about the do’s and don’t with KPD! The colours in the cover are off as well, but I found nothing so far that would stop me from publishing the new edition on August 31!

We wouldn’t do this if it would be easy, right?

New here? I am New Zealand-based writer, artist and maker Minu Freitag. I have published my first book—The Fragments, an inventive mix of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Dystopian fiction—in 2022 and am currently working on the second book in The Spheres Series—The House—due for release in the first half of 2024.
