New and Updated Webs

I’ve been a busy girl. I now have 230 pages written in my manuscript. The draft will be printed for friends and family to proof before Christmas. I’d like to publish in 2010. In the meantime, I’ve updated the Abilities information on the Ferox site at feroxworld.com/abilities. I’ve reorganized the naming structure to group like abilities together. Check it out. Also, I’ve added descriptions of the levels.

I’ve also put up the new OmniBellum site at omnibellum.com. This site is the official government site of the Ferox. You can read a brief description of the government system and Justice Island, where the government resides. The island is also home to a hospital, the collesium, and a marketplace.

So check out the webs and stay posted for more news!

Twitter Recap

I keep small updates on my Twitter account, but here’s a recap. I’ve been working on the book and the associated web pages.

My author site: stphenieyoung is now a flash site. That was fun to learn. I plan to work more on that so that there’s a non-flash version for those looking at the site from their phones or whatever. This site has a little blurb about me and has my blog page. It also has links to my other pages.

The actual book site is lionheartseries.com. It’s mostly a placeholder page right now with some design and a short synopsis of the first book Im writing. The name of the series may even change before I publish. Mainly because I’ve designed a cool logo for The Ferox.

TheFerox.com is a fictional website. This website functions as if The Ferox were real. It is a site uses within the book (and later books). This site explains what The Ferox are and some of their history. There’s a forums page where people with abilities go to chat openly about their gifts and ability-related troubles. Later, there will be a section where people with abilities can advertise special services for sale. And later I’ll work on fun interactive stuff like a “What would my ability be” quiz. The forum is up and a lot of characters have signed up and entered their profiles. The general public can’t join at this time, but anyone can view the profiles.

I do have a regular job – well, more than one. So this is kind of slow going, but for anyone waiting for the book, I plan to have a first run print by Christmas. As a gift for my teenage daughter. I’m still not sure what’s going to happen with publishing. I need to finish the book first.

Thanks for checking out my site!
