Finally seeing the light!

I know it's been over two months since my last blog, but with busy holidays and family, it's been pretty hectic and I haven't been able to do much of anything. Good news is, those busy weeks are behind me so now I'm focused on finishing my writing - at least until late August, that is. I'll be having friends and family over during August and September and, unfortunately, this will hamper my inspiration and writing in every which way.

As you can see on the new and revised book cover here:
I've decided to change the title to my story for e-book publishing.
The story I'm referring to is "Only You".
I've decided to return its original title which was "For Elise". When I originally wrote the story, I was really into the classic piece by Ludwig van Beethoven, "Fur Elise", and wrote the story while listening to it. I had only changed the title in order to make it alphabetically advantageous for the online sites.
Now I find myself having to change the title back if I plan to keep posting chapters without having the wrath of Amazon come down on me for posting parts of the (planned) e-book and print copy. I don't want to have to take down stories every time I decide to publish so I guess I'll have to change the titles of those I want to keep up when I decide to publish them, and thus, "Only You" will be published as "For Elise".
I also plan to create a book trailer for it before it's published, of course. I plan to make trailers for all my released books because it's just fun to do! It's a lot of work, but it really is a lot of fun and I find myself getting better at creating more professional looking trailers although I'll be the first to tell you I'm far from perfect!  
I'm currently proofing and editing (online) chapters 6 and 7. Chapter 5 is pretty much done although I feel I need to tweak a scene or two. Anyway, when it's ready for the sites I'll be sure to make mention of it here. I hope you're enjoying the story so far! Please stay tuned.
