Everyone dreads Mondays. We’ve played all weekend and had some relaxation. Now this dreaded day arrives. Back to work and school. But what made it dreaded to you? We put off things we need to do, and then have to work hard to get the day going. Most of us are alike.
After a weekend off, we should look forward to starting the new day. I am, but I may be different from you. I like what I do. Books are accepted and published. That always makes me happy.
Today I’m sending out contracts. Sometimes I dread it, but I finally have it worked out pretty good to where I can breeze through filling out the contract. These are some pretty good suspenseful books, and I’m eager to see if the authors accept the contracts.
When we make a contract it’s always a gamble. Will the author be willing to make the changes we ask? Are they strong in marketing? Will the release be scheduled far enough out to give the author enough time to market the book properly? There’s so much we consider when we send a contract out.
Today the contracts will be scheduled to release in mid 2019. It will give us eight or nine months to work with the author and get the book in shape. Editing takes up most of the time. We go through several edits in order to get a book that is well written and entertaining to the reader.
We get several books where the author borders on cursing. I’m not a fan of cursing or even using slang words that are close to cursing. When I say we want a clean book, that is what we want. A book that is clean in language with no suggestions of any behavior that is not what a Christian would do. That is a clean book.
We have a lot going on right now. Tomorrow Mercury Rising by Tim and Gail Sattler will be on preorder. As of today it’s only on ebook, but the print book will be on preorder in a few days. You can order the ebook from Amazon.com at https://www.amazon.com/Mercury-Rising-Tim-Gail-Sattler-ebook/dp/B07G68C4LK/ref=sr_1_20?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1533569373&sr=1-20&keywords=Mercury+Rising.

When all seems lost, will they all recognize the source of strength offered to them, and… will they take it?Michael wants to save his daughter, but first he’s got to save the world.
