Another year has passed. Yes, that’s correct, it has been two years since I boarded an airplane for my “across the pond” journey into the lands of my characters in The Keepers of Éire. I can’t adequately express my love and exuberance of that journey. The people I met were inspirational. The locations matched my dreams. I can’t wait to go back (Book Tour?).
I’ve begun work on my website: www.jordanbernal.com Check it out when you get a chance. I am still adding content, so have patience.
Here’s an update on the novel: I have completed the draft and several / many revisions. My manuscript has been read like a book (cover to cover) by my critique group and several “Beta Readers”. These readers have heard bits and pieces of scenes in either my edit class or at open mic nights. Their feedback was positive and constructive. I have made additional revisions based on their insights. I am now sending the latest version to several “Cold Readers”. These readers have not heard anything about the novel other than it is a fantasy involving dragons. In other words, these readers are my target audience.
I am working on finding an editor and hope to have someone lined up soon. My thoughts are to self-publish in the coming months. Stay tuned.
I am also working with a terrific person, Christine McCall, on the cover. With my ideas, she has already designed the front cover and we are working on the back cover.
