Working that editing thing

Greetings all.

Just thought I'd give you an update as to what's going on. I'm working on doing what I hope is final style and grammatical editing, or, if you prefer, the final proof edit before I get the actual proof of The Unknown Elf. Fingers crossed that it goes quickly. I hope to release this story on November 22, 2014, so we'll see how things go.

I'm also working on cover art for this. Who knew that almost double-majoring in art would be this helpful? Ah well, I always have liked both writing and drawing. And I'm drawing the cover by hand, so that makes it even more exciting.

A bit later on, I might give a snippet of the story. But for those who wish a bit of a reminder, since I'm sure I posted this before, here's what's going on the back cover:

Marie never expected to wake up in North Pole City, let alone become Santa’s Emergency Replacement. It was a job she never wanted but couldn’t turn down, thanks to Clarence, Santa’s right hand man.

Now, Marie has to work with Clarence, who believes she is some kind of criminal who will cause the destruction of everything he holds dear. Trying to prove that he’s wrong, Marie keeps making mistakes that push them even further apart. It doesn’t help that she has a past she’d rather keep hidden. However, trying to keep her past where it should belong isn’t easy.

Just when Marie starts to feel like things are coming together, a madman with a bone to pick, and Christmas to ruin, threatens the whole of the North Pole Organization. Marie must rely on Clarence and her new friends to help her face her past before Christmas is gone forever.  But does she have the courage to truly be herself when it could mean losing everything?
