Other things that are currently happening in the SparkleMoon world are the continuation of the Mirabelle series. Book two is being written now, alongside a re-imaging and re-release of Mirabelle. The cover has been given a make over, and a new chapter will be added. I have also decided, after reading the reviews, and time that has passed, that it’s best to remove some of the pages at the back.

Things are ticking along with the other five manuscripts that I am attempting to edit and proofread. I’ve completed two, but we are working on the cover for Book One, which is awesome. This of course, brings along some new challenges: writing briefs, contacting artists and illustrators and of course, keeping the author in the loop every step of the way. That’s one of the things I appreciate – having a collaborative partnership, whereby all decisions are made together, giving the author a greater sense of ownership, rather than being dictated too.

Learning to market, understanding the audience that we are targeting, and having the manuscripts reviewed, are all things that we are currently working through as well.

It’s never dull around here!!

Until next time, take care and be safe.

My daughter wrote this quite a while ago, but I think it’s utterly gorgeous. Enjoy!!

Not long ago, my beautiful Pop was diagnosed with dementia. I wrote this for him a few years ago as a gift. Now I wish to share so you all can see how I see my beloved Popโ€ฆ

The stage is set, curtains are drawn. An audience brimming with anticipation, silently wait for the show to begin. Suddenly, the lights go out. In the darkness the atmosphere is electric, the audience whispers excitedly, wondering what the Maestro has in store for them.

Then, as if on cue, there is silence.

The only sound is of footsteps, slowly, deliberately walking on the stage. As one, the audience looks up at the stage trying to see through the darkness to where the Maestro is.

A quiet melody begins, fingers delicately dancing across the keys with the music. Hundreds of lights dance across the drawn curtains like magical creatures flitting about, here andโ€ฆ

Hello and welcome to the very first blog from SparkleMoon Publishing. I’m glad you’ve found us ๐Ÿ™‚

Today is a triumphant day, with myself having just sent everything off to the printers, for a mid July release of our first book. How utterly exciting and completely exhausting.

Between being the proofreader, editor, designer, author, spell checker, wrangling new software, learning new programmes and being the general ‘everybody’, I am utterly shattered!

However having said that, I am elated that after fluffing around since December of last year with my manuscript, that it’s finally ready to be printed.

In the meantime, blogging on my other website sandisparklewilson.com, designing websites for other clients, editing and proofreading four other manuscripts, as well as being wife and mum to a boy off school for two weeks; well it’s a whirlwind of activity around here.

If you would like to get in touch regarding your own manuscript, please do so on the contact form. We’re very excited to work alongside other writers and authors, and see what kind of genius we can all come up with!

Take care, stay safe and be blessed.

Sandi ๐Ÿ™‚
