After five years of outlining, writing, editing, and working away, I am finally able to hold my debut novel in my hands. I received my soft cover proof copy from Ingramspark last Friday, still waiting on the hardcover but it shouldn’t be too far off. It was incredible to see it, there really isn’t any feeling like it. The thing is REAL now, a physical thing I can hold in my hands…. Read More

While I anxiously await the delivery of my author proof copies of IN THE ORBIT OF SIRENS (available October 4th 2020), I have begun my first edit on its sequel. Now that I am more familiar with the process, I intend to get this edit completed and sent to beta readers much sooner than I did with book 1. With IN THE ORBIT OF SIRENS, I completed about 4 or 5 edits… Read More

A little tease of the potential title too (I’m feeling pretty good about it, I just haven’t officially released it yet!) Last night I completed the first draft of the sequel novel to IN THE ORBIT OF SIRENS. I’m really pleased with the way things went, and I intend to add another 10k words when I do my first round edit before sending to beta readers. With Book 1 eyeing publication in… Read More

Lorna Reid is cruising along on the formatting for IN THE ORBIT OF SIRENS. Recently she shared some samples of the e-book with me, and I’m thrilled to see how it’s coming along! To stoke some excitement, I’m here to share these samples with you. Keep in mind, e-books are highly customizable to the user, so a lot of the formatting is set to accommodate that (we want to keep our readers… Read More

So you may have noticed a branding change in my pen name, there’s a good reason for that! I officially made the switch from using my real name, Tom Bruno to using T. A. Bruno today. There are already two other authors named Tom/Thomas/Tom A./Thomas A. Bruno etc, one who wrote a religious novel, and another who writes short story science fiction. Although my novel probably would have stood out, I decided… Read More

Previously, I’ve covered what I’ve learned about pre-planning and writing the first draft of a novel. In this post I hope to cover some of what I learned about the post-first-draft days, including preliminary editing and beta readers. As I said before, in your first draft you can allow yourself to be imperfect, because now you’re going to make it better. First draft in the bag, maybe you want to take a… Read More

Today I hired a formatter to bring IN THE ORBIT OF SIRENS over the finish line. Once her job is completed we are officially ready for Publish! I am so excited to bring this debut novel into the world, and I couldn’t have done it without a lot of help! I wanted to take a moment and thank everyone who has helped me during this quest to publish my debut novel. You… Read More
