First though, some background since this account has been inactive for so long.

At the end of April in 2015, ten early reviews for Werewolf Tale were posted on Goodreads, with some coming later from other readers who read the version posted on the site. (The reviews were part of an Advanced Review Copy for Review event I found out about, and tossed my name/work into the ring of, through a Goodreads group in late 2014. Because of non-participation and no communication from my original editor leading up to then, the version I am in process of editing was submitted, after being tweaked a bit and run through Scrivener to make the e-copies.)

In the months leading to October 2015, NaNo Prep Month, I began poking at the draft and deciding on changes, as well as finding a new editor. That being Sean Gerace of Anthro Aquatic. (He has gone over the old draft once already in 2015 and reaffirmed what the early reviews of Werewolf Tale described.)

For the last quarter of 2015, I took a two-month-long break from novel writing/editing in prep for NaNoWriMo. A lack of ideas kept me from taking part that year, hence the current draft went into stasis for a while.

For January, and likely February, of this year, I'll be working on the rewrite/draft that will be sent to my new editor. (The rewrite is not a full overhaul of the story. Just a touching up of what I think needs changing. That being excessive wording, streamlining of existing work, where and what order events happen, etc. Several chapters are completely new though, and changes to the ending are being considered.)

For March, if the draft has been given to my editor by that time, I'll be giving his take a once over and sending it back to him for the first round of edits. I'll also be testing Lulu's printing services again in case anything has changed since I last used them, as well as buying the ISBNs I need and getting things in order for the publishing company I hope to create. (I have no idea what running one will do to my taxes, so that is being looked into after I file my taxes for this year.)

For April, I should be starting work on cleaning up the first edit. If I feel the need, a second edit will be ordered.

As the publication date gets closer, I'll be starting a new round of ARCs, which includes getting in contact with every person who reviewed the 2015 version and giving them an updated copy in e-format.

Publication Goal: June 2016. I'll be offering four versions of the novel upon release: E-book, Paperback, Wrapped Cover, and Matte Dust Jacket.

After publication, Werewolf Tale II will be my focus. To give a taste of what's to come, Alex does learn more about Shane as his second full moon continues and passes. His situation isn't far removed from Alex's, but... (It won't be an emotionally manipulative tale, on that you have my word.)

And with all that said, back to work for me. Fingers crossed that this year is the finish line.

Werewolf Tale - Beta Reading Announcement

Journal Entry: Sun Aug 31, 2014, 10:42 AM
Your Title - version 2.0

sub-title


Guten Tag, alle.

As of yesterday, Werewolf Tale has been submitted for its second copy-edit. As I mentioned before, I will be using the time preceding getting the draft back to do a few things regarding the novel. One of which is part of this submission/announcement.

While I’m waiting for the edited draft and preparing for a third copy-edit or the final proofread, I am going to be holding a Beta Reading for Werewolf Tale. What this means is I am opening the floor to all interested in offering their thoughts and suggestions on the story as it is now.

I will provide a full copy of the current draft and a questionnaire to fill out to anyone who chooses to do this. Leave a comment or Note/PM me and I will link you to the files and provide an e-mail address to send the completed document to. Be sure to answer every question as fully as possible, and contact me if something is confusing.

Be advised also that I would like to mention the people who help me here by a real name in the Acknowledgments portion of the novel versus User IDs. If you do not wish to be named, let me know and I will respect your request.

This Beta Read will run until I am ready for the final proofread to be done, which I will announce. When that time arrives, I will be finalizing things, so no changes outside of minor ones will be made.

Thanks for your time, and I look forward to reading what you all have to say.

- Adam G.

I came across this site while browsing for werewolf art years ago. Since then, I believe I've found a better calling in writing fiction, fan-based or otherwise.

I've recently graduated from The University of Houston with a Bachelor's in Business Management, and am working towards publishing my first novel, Werewolf Tale. Looking forward to that moment when I can hold my work in my hands as a finished product.

Otherwise, I'm usually gaming on my seems-to-be-dying XBOX 360 and editing for GatherYourParty.com. Good times.

Vision - Given the title of this piece, as well as the poses of the wolves, the theme of the piece seems like "I'm here for you, and I'...
