One step closer

16 Nov

Happy Wednesday friends! So, now that the final climax of the book has been written and only the final scenes need to be hammered out, I’m getting excited. The cover art is being worked on and the illustrations are done. We should have everything to the publisher in about 3 weeks for a late February/early March release date! Woohoo!

It’s been a great journey filled with many friends who have assisted to make it possible. My editor was appropriately ruthless to suggest the changes necessary to make this a wonderful and exciting story. I take back all those nasty things I thought about you, Lauren! Just kidding. LOL

Stay tuned for the image of the cover art and updates on the release date. I’ll need to get a new synopsis written for everyone to see. I have to say, writing a story is the fun part – marketing it is more challenging but I’m up for learning a new skill. I have friends who have preceded me in the publishing realm who will offer lots of advice, right Amy, Leigh and Lauren? I’ll look to you for wisdom and sanity over the next six months. Thanks to everyone who follows this blog and my adventure. More to come…

    Yea, Mikko – Nice to see you back in the blogosphere – I’m going to invite you as a friend on goodreads. It has proved to be an awesome marketing tool in the two days that I have been advertising!
