Finally done with my first draft + reviewers wanted!

After some intense self editing and revisions, I have sent my first draft to my beta readers, aka, friends:) and paid my 50% copyediting fee to the freelance editor I found. I will do one more revision after hearing my readers’ feedback. After that Florid Eyes will be off to the editor’s desk!

I plan to release the book on the kindle store next month, and hard copies should take another. I’m in need of reviews. If you can promise to write me one, please let me know. I’d be happy to send you an e-copy!

I have also designed a jacket for the book using Pages (can’t afford/don’t know how to use Photoshop). How do you guys like it?

About Nicky

Nicky English is a journalist, an educator, a podcaster, a couch potato, a dreamer, and a child at heart. Learning is her passion, so is the English language, which she believes is the tool to unlock the door of knowledge. Born in Hong Kong, she received intensive writing training at The University of Iowa, where she double-majored in journalism and political science. Apart from the Hawkeye State, she’s lived in Chicago and Philadelphia. When she was a guest student at Georgetown University, she fell in love with Washington, D.C. She also has a Master of Arts in Communication. A little side note—she cannot imagine a world without her Mac and iDevices. Like many crazy ones, she hopes to change the world one day at a time.
