Streaks of Blue is done!

I just finished the rewritten and retooled draft last night. 52,900 words. A tad longer than I thought it would be, but just right for a YA drama. Now all it needs is some copy editing, polishing and, of course, a cover. Norway’s Ida Jansson did such a kick-ass job on “Queens are Wild” that I plan to hire her again. Plus my idea for the cover can’t be done with a photograph. The talented Erin Covey instead has volunteered to shoot my portrait. “I’m always willing to help out a fellow creative,” she says. How cool is she? I guess it’s about time I had a real author photo!

Can’t wait for the world to read it! I’ll be donating half of any proceeds from the novel to the Newtown Memorial Fund.

Best,
Jack

    I’m looking forward to it. I’ve been kicking around an idea for a YA novel myself for years now. I expect to learn a lot about that genre from you.
