I couldn't be more excited to announce that I've just finished my first draft of Unlimited, book two in the Milligan Creek series. In case you haven't heard, in this book, Matt, Chad, Andrew, and Dean--with a little help from Matt and Chad's older sister, Joyce--launch their own pirate radio station and soon find themselves piling up just as many foes as fans.
Now that the draft is finished, I need to do an edit, a polish, and a proof, and then it's off to layout and design. All that should be complete by the end of August, with the book ready to launch as soon as the new school year begins. I've already given you a sneak peek of the cover creation process, but here's one more look.
This is where it all begins, folks, with a rough sketch from my amazing artist, Kierston Vande Kraats.
Actually, it began a bit before that with my own sketch, which I sent to Kierston for reference. See why I pay her the big bucks?
Stay tuned for more updates!
