For those curious few out there who have been following the publishing process for my debut novel, here’s a progress report. (It is during the school year, right?) The manuscript has been edited and formatted for print, and my good friend Melissa Williams is putting the final touches on the cover. I saw a preliminary the other day and it looks fantastic! Here is it below. It’s very strange to see my name in all bold letters on the front of a book, but I’m sure that will never get old. All there is left to do on the cover is add two author blurbs and we’ll be all set.
Once the cover is done, the next step for the print edition is to compile the manuscript and cover files and zap them to the publisher. I hope to have that done next week. In the meantime, I’m working on the e-book version, which will be available the same day as the paperback. If all goes as planned, you should be able to order them in time for Christmas. Yay!
