I've been burning the midnight oil fine tuning the first of the "Challenge" books, and our first Mixed Blessings book, Simple Pleasures
, is now very close. I just have a little more tweaking to do before I have a definite page count, then the cover can be finished, and it will be off to the printer.
Apart from editing, every Mixed Blessings book after this should be quite easy as the basic template stays the same. However, there will be a lot of gap filling required in all the future books, so stay tuned for opportunities to submit articles/poems/stories for any of these books.
With the publication of Timmy Boyle's book at the end of April, the Breath of Fresh Air Press door is definitely open and things are jumping. So get into the Challenge for chances to be published. Not only do you have that chance by placing in the Editors' Choice, but you also may be discovered just by entering. That's how I found Timmy.
AND don't forget the Page Turner contest
. The winner each year will definitely be offered a publishing contract with Breath of Fresh Air Press.
Anyway, stay tuned. I will post something about the cover as soon as we have the front finalized (which it pretty much is right now).
