Cover Update and Final Manuscript Update
An astute fan of The Twisty Passages of Time: Veer Left for Home may notice something different about the latest cover. And actually, the cover has gone through a series of versions. Here's the chronology of the changes:
So the first cover was never published. The main problem simply was the title was too small. So the second one fixed the title and did a few other adjustments. But I always felt the font wasn't creative enough. For the final version I found a font that I felt better represented the feel of the book. I also did some creative work to make it flow with the shapes of the ankh on the cover. Hopefully, this will be received well.
But that's not all. Writing a book is fraught with problems. No matter how many times I read through it, I found mistakes. I also felt the story was missing a few ingredients that would make it more relatable. So the version that went on sale as of January 9, 2021 has the latest revisions. The original book was 271 pages long. This revision has 286 pages, adding 15 additional pages. Most of these 15 pages add further depth into the reasons the Farnsworth brothers were such bullies to Liam. It has a more satisfying conclusion to how the Liam's bullying is resolved. But the biggest addition was Chapter 16: The Omen. I felt it was important the reader got a taste for what awaits Liam in his future.
This will be my last major revision of Book 1. So now, I'm going to push hard to advertise the book. I think I've finally worked out the kinks.
