The BETA READERS Of LADY SATAN Have Spoken!
It wasn't that long ago that the third draft script for 'LADY SATAN: AN ANGEL IN A KILLERS DRESS' was placed into the hands of Beta Readers, which is an exciting and anxiety-inducing step in the creative process. It leaves you in a state of wanting to hear their thoughts and not wanting to hear their thoughts at the same time. But with this project, I was eager to hear their thoughts and while I am still to hear back from some of the Beta Readers, a majority of them have responded...And it's all good.
I like to keep the identity and opinions of the Beta Readers hidden for obvious reasons. However, I did notice that 99% of the Beta Readers who have responded and shared their thoughts and feelings on the third draft script all used one of two common phrases when telling me their opinion on the story and script as a whole.
They either wrote/said 'WOW!' or they used the term 'FUCKING AWESOME'! So something tells me they liked it. And that's great. However, some of the Beta Readers have also made a couple of valid suggestions to help strengthen the script that I will implement because they are great points to bring up.
So while I'm going to have to wait to hear from other Beta Readers before I can start illustrating the artwork for the final book, it does mean that I can move forward with some concept designs and character designs and other forms of preliminary art and illustration in preparation for the long haul of illustrating this 80-page graphic novel.
An official release date for 'LADY SATAN: AN ANGEL IN A KILLERS DRESS' is still to be announced and other decisions concerning the future publication of this book are being discussed and explored. The moment there is a new development you can expect an announcement.
Until then: Take care of yourselves, take care of each other and stay awesome!
