In a few days, my first book is being released. I am both excited and exhausted. For those of you who have gone through this process, you know what I mean. I’m at that nit-picky stage where a missing punctuation mark feels like a cosmic calamity.
Today I discovered that multiple corrections to my cover are still not completed and therefore the release of my paperback will be delayed.
At times like these I have to look on the bright side, when what I want to do is “cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war,” more or less.
- The digital versions will still be available on time, July 24th, 2018.
- I’ve learned a lot with this process, which will make it that much easier for book two next year and the novella I’m publishing in October.
- No more rewrites!
I know all the reversals and headaches will be worth it…eventually. For now, I just hope I get through it in one piece and mostly sane!
Commiserating is one of the best reasons to blog. Anyone else have newbie publishing stories?
