Publishing update

Things are moving along nicely, I think. Major revisions are complete and yesterday I picked up this bad boy from the printer formerly known as Kinko’s:

Click to zoooooooom.

I did a little dance of triumph when I got home even though no one but Matt will be reading this copy. I’m not going to apologize for my dramatic all-caps warning; if I can’t make this process fun it won’t happen. Also, I’m not going to apologize for my dancing: it’s gotten a lot better since I started studying belly dance. Dude, who wouldn’t be excited to hold their manuscript in their hands — even if they printed it her/himself?

After Matt finally reads this (and no, he still hasn’t read a word of it though this was originally my 2013 NaNoWriMo project) I will shoot off electronic copies to other indie authors so that we can exchange critiques and reviews. Exciting!

I have a mock-up of the cover done and I managed to accomplish all the tweaking and hacking I wanted to do to the website (which is not open yet because I don’t have an official cover or a release date). But for every item I check off my “to do and to research” list I add at least five more. The list is insanely long now and I haven’t the first clue how to put it all in order. No matter. I blunder happily along.
