The lovely Stephanie Dagg has gotten the book back to me with corrections/changes to accept, or reject. Once I get through this (I'm about 15% in currently) I'll send it back to her for a bit of proofreading. As usual, I'm grateful for all the help she gives me.
No one should attempt this on their own. I'm not the worst writer out there and I still have a mound of commas to be added in, words changed out for the correct tense. I could look this book over a dozen times and never catch everything.
Either way, we are at the end stretch of the run for this book. My cover should be completed by this weekend....so hopefully before the end of the month the book will be released. We shall see :D
Remember: This book is a standalone. If you are new to the series this book would be a fine place to start. Please understand, the tone of this book is pretty different from the main series and a lot more straight forward. The main series is far more layered and crazy that this one is. Hitori does end on a note of continuation...but no more so than someone riding off into the sunset. After all, this book takes place in 8th century Japan, the main series is modern day (for now).
Also, Hitori will be priced at $1.99, for a while. After that, it'll be $2.99. Either way, it's cheaper than seeing a movie and will take more than a couple hours to read it....unless you're a speed reader. One last thought: CoM book 1 is 99 cents until the end of the month.
