Our goal was to have this book (“Artifact”) on the virtual shelves in the middle-to-end of July.
We’re pushing that timeline now. But that’s okay. Plenty of last minute edits and re-writes were done, and we believe it has made our first novel an outstanding piece of work (although, I’m sure you’ll be the judge of that!).
Right now, the final editing and continuity checks are being completed, and I believe this thing should be ready to order on Amazon.com by the first week in August. However, keep checking back here for updates.
Four months ago, when we gave birth to this concept of nine people who had never met in person, only on the ‘net, cranking out novel, I would have thought the creative process of actually writing the thing would have been the tough part.
Man, was I wrong!
What does The Artifact novel have to do with Indiana Jones and Cleopatra?
In real life, Dr. Zahi Hawass, an archeologist known for wearing an Indiana Jones style hat, believes that he has uncovered the tomb of Cleopatra. If he has (and he believes he may find Mark Anthony as well), it would be one of the most significant archeological finds of our century.
In the fictional world of The Artifact, archeologists, Sean Tyler and Jan Fisher, set out to find the tomb of another ancient lady, Sahlek. What ensues is pure fiction, but the adventure rivals the mystery surrounding the Egyptian ruler, Cleopatra.
While novels often mirror events from real life, The Artifact’s reflection on current events is purely good timing. Hmm. Maybe it’s an artifact thing. And if you’re wondering what that means … you’ll just have to read the book.
Final edits are in the works. So be sure to check back for a publication date.
