Author Spotlight- Darkness Sleeping: Origins of Morgana Le Fay by Jen Pretty

This week in the Author Spotlight is an indie author and personal friend of mine, Jen Pretty.

Magic won’t abide innocence…

…and Morgana’s time of innocence is long past.

Searching for a home, Morgana treks through the wilderness to find the convent where she plans to spend the rest of her days. Circumstance or maybe destiny has other plans.

Accompanied only by her horse, she races away from certain death and straight into the jaws of fate looking for a land she knows only by name: Avalon.

Magic and power come with deadly consequences and she will have to decide if she is ready to risk everything to get what she needs, or accept her punishment and never find her birthright.

Morgana knows one thing: something dark is sleeping inside her…

…and waking that darkness may be the only way to save her life.

What early reviewers are saying:

“Captivating”

“An exciting and entertaining read”

“Excellent take on an old theme”

Soon to be Published!

Wow! What a long day it’s been. Long, frustrating and exciting at the same time.

My idea of thinking ahead may have been the cause of the setbacks I encountered this afternoon. I decided to use the KDP 5×8 template as I intended to release my written work as a paperback as well as an e-book. I figured by doing so I wouldn’t have any issues with spacing or the overall layout if I submit my final document set to their template.

The document was sent off for approval and when I had the chance to preview it; I noticed that the spacing between the paragraphs had changed as well as the page numbers on the Table of Contents were off. There were a few blank pages inserted at random so the pages that were all out of whack. It took four hours to figure out how to fix that mess. Most of the spacing issues had to do with the footers and having to delete the section breaks and removing the page numbers only to add them back.

The one positive note about having to go through all of that is that I caught a few more minor mistakes that Grammarly missed. I had to use Microsoft Word to work out the changes and saw the minor errors that Grammarly didn’t pick up. Unfortunately, I had already submitted the e-book version before those last minute changes were made. Once that goes live, I’ll have to update the e-book to avoid any possible negative reviews. At least the paperback version will be error free, so that is a bonus.

I ordered a Proof Copy which should arrive in a few days. I’m pretty excited to see the end result and share a picture with all of you.

Once both versions are live and ready to sell; I’ll post a link. ~ Hannah
