It's funny. Since my announcement of signing my first book contract, I've found myself still browsing blogs with writing advice.
Do all authors still work at trying to be better? Do they work at making the next book better than the last?
Yes. They do.
At least that is my sincere hope. I would hate to think that they just keep writing and cranking out their work without giving it a second thought after getting the first one published.
I have taken a bit of a break since signing my contract. My next project is going to be a short, 10,000 word piece called "The Wicked One". It is one that I am going to self publish on Smashwords when it is done. Then back to work on revising "Veritas". In between, I have a couple of other short stories I want to expand on and put up on Smashwords as well.
I've got a friend that is willing to do artwork for me. In the meantime, is there a way to work on cover art for myself? I don't have Photoshop.
So do you still work at being a better writer or do you just let it all fall where it may?
