Sorry for the lack of activity as of late. Work was incredibly exhausting last week. I think it was a combination of my employer's poor planning and the hot temperatures, which combined just wore me out. I barely made it through five pages of chapter 1's edit last week. Thankfully, today was far more productive. I've got the story set up and chapter 1 has been uploaded to the sight and properly formatted. All I need to do now is give it one last look over and reading. Then I can finally submit "Then There Was You" at last!
I've even got a temporary cover pic and complete summary ready to go. I'm still hoping to get my envisioned cover pic but the artist in question is swamped right now, so I'll have to be patient. Here's what I've devised for now:
I was considering adding the title, but I couldn't find a font I liked, so I figured blank would do for now.
Oh and if any of you are interested, here's what I have as the summary right now. But I'm going to mull over it and smooth it over. It seems a bit rough to me.
Summary - "Then There Was You"
Jeannedarc or "Jeanne" as she is generally referred to, has completed her training as a Royal Guard of Canterlot. A little over a month has passed since she started her duties as a guard and she is getting used to her role. Now, with some time off her duties, she decides to venture to Ponyville in search of a renowned blacksmith's forge where she hopes to find an ideal sword for use in her role as a guard. After arriving at the forge she discovers the blacksmith's apprentice, someone more than an individual skilled in crafting elegant blades. In fact, Jeanne ends up meeting her very first human face to face, after having seen several in passing on the streets of Canterlot. As she continues to check in on the status of her sword, she's going to end up gaining far more than just a fine blade.
So there you have it. I'm hoping that by Wednesday this story will be posted and then I will be getting to work on chapter 7 of Celestia's story (at long last)!
I'm still so very grateful for the patience and understanding you've all displayed in waiting for me to get this ready to go. Thankfully, your wait is almost over. Well, I'd best be going. Till next time, my friends! Take care!
