I've said in a couple of different posts that my Indie Novel is stalled.
Today I thought about doing something about that but lost what I needed.
The biggest thing I need is someone to check the spelling, grammar, for typos, bad sentences etc. I had someone who said they would do it for far less than the pros who would want a couple of thousand dollars for copy editing. But I can't find the guy's E-mails. (That's not the first time that has happen lately--I have wondered of there is a gremlin program that gets rid of important E-mails. One on my computer or in my mind for there's nothing even in the trash file for around the time period I talked with the guy)
I had thought about doing a Kickstarter deal to see if I could raise the money for a copy editor and pro cover artist but I have had problems trying to do a video by myself--mostly in focusing the thing and finding the time to remember to practice.
So I may try to do Kickstarter without a video or find someone who is willing to go over a who novel for practically free. And who can do it now. I have had a couple of people who said they would go over it for one thing or another but everyone got busy-which may mean I asked the wrong people or that my book needs a whole lot more work than they expected. And even though my artistic skills do not go over to covers(I have two story set covers that show this) I might be able to figure out a nice cover on my own. I have learned a couple of things along those lines while researching this project. And even though they would not be the cover I want. I would like one that shows my MC--maybe talking to a Griffin in a ruined room, or fighting "Ghosts" with fire or in the final confrontation with the bad guy. But, as we used to say, I would be able to cope without that.
