Thoughts on Publishing – Infinitas Publishing Status Report

It’s that time again! Time for the monthly Infinitas Publishing status report. 😀

The Shadow War: I finished the first round of edits and I’m now in the process of smoothing out the story and polishing before sending it to beta-readers. Progress is definitely being made!

The Multiverse Chronicles: Trials of Blood and Steel: Slowed down a bit on releasing episodes (you can read why in this post) but we’re working our way through the second half of the first season. Isaac and I are debating taking a hiatus on releasing episodes so that we can get through edits on the rest of the season rather than trying to do a heavy round of edits each week, but we’ll see.

Battle Decks: Trials of Blood and Steel: Nothing new at the moment. Had to take a break from beta-testing since we were out of town for a few weekends.

SBibb’s Photographic Illustration: Finished two formatting projects, finished a couple book cover projects, and have one more major formatting project to go. Progress made!

Beta-Reading: Finally got started on this! Still moving slowly, but I’m moving a lot faster than I was before summer started.

Distant Horizon: Waiting on beta-reader feedback. Isaac and I also noticed a few scenes we want to tweak before we release it into the wild, but I’m excited to start working on it as soon as we have all our notes. Also, we now have a blurb!

Video Blogging: Once I’m caught up with formatting and beta-reading, I plan to resume reading Magic’s Stealing in audio format.

Author Blog: I’ve been writing a lot more writing-based articles lately. Let me know if there’s any topics you want me to cover. 🙂

In other news, we’ve just about hit the one year anniversary of Infinitas Publishing, so I plan to do an annual report later this month. I plan to go over everything we released, what we had planned to release (and didn’t), as well as sales. And I also want to touch on how we’re adjusting our original plan and what you can expect to see next.

And if you want to stay up-to-date with our latest book releases and promotions, don’t forget to sign up for our new Infinitas Publishing Newsletter!

I hope you enjoyed this post. 🙂

Thoughts on Publishing – Infinitas Publishing Status Report

Well, guess what? It’s time for another Infinitas Publishing status report!

The Shadow War: This is slowly, slowly making progress. I did get a little more editing done. The good news is that this process should go faster now that summer is almost here.

The Multiverse Chronicles: Trials of Blood and Steel We recently released episode twelve, and we aren’t quite halfway through the season. There’s still a few more end scenes to write for the later episodes, and I’m about one episode away from having to edit episodes I haven’t yet touched. I’m hoping I can get these edited fast enough to give our beta-reader time to read them before Isaac and I do our final edit before publishing them, or there may be a few episodes spaced out a couple weeks apart rather than just one week.

Battle Decks: Trials of Blood and Steel Isaac and I are continuing to test expansion ideas with our group of beta-testers. However, we’re having to really evaluate where we want the game to go before we release anything. Initially we were talking about deck-building ideas, but then we realized that too many deck-building options would take away from the hero-focus of the game. Right now we’re looking at the idea of limiting the scope of deck-building, while still offering some deck customization within each faction, along with testing more hero card options.

Still very much a work in progress, though I am looking forward to revealing a few of the different faction deck expansions once we iron out the details. And new factions… though those will come later.

Phalanx: We debuted Phalanx at the Old Drum Days Festival, and while we only sold a couple games, we did get to play the game with a number of people who stopped by our booth, and we hope repeated exposure will entice more people to pick up a copy down the road.

SBibb’s Photographic Illustration: Another book cover done, more proof covers made, one formatting project complete, another near-complete, and several more projects to go.

Beta-Reading: I’ve started reading the latest draft of the book I’m currently beta-reading. Seems I’m about as slow beta-reading as I am with editing The Shadow War, and as such, I’ve asked the author to send me weekly email reminders to get the chapters read so I can send her feedback in a timely manner.

Distant Horizon: We’ve got a couple people looking at the current manuscript for typos, and once we have feedback, we’ll be making the final edits and I’ll print out a copy to check for typos. I’ve also been working on a back-cover blurb, and hopefully I’ll have a polished version ready to reveal soon.

Video Blogging: Only a few chapters left of Magic’s Stealing to read, and then I’m not quite sure what to read next. I’ll be evaluating the video blogging project at the end of the readings to decide where I want to go from there and whether or not to continue with the video blogs.

We’ve got a lot of stuff planned for Infinitas Publishing, and I hope you enjoyed this post. 🙂
