I’ve been absent for a long time, and I’m so sorry, but the time I was absent was dedicated to re-writing my book, re-writing my book again, sending it off to an editor, and re-writing it yet again. It is now in the stages of polish, and I will send it out for book reviews this weekend. I thought I would have been done by late last summer, than by the beginning of December, but I was wrong. Rookie mistake.
Anyhow, I would much rather push the publication date and get my book in fit shape than send it out so-so. As it is, I’m not completely happy with the story, but I am satisfied with it.
The timeline now, assuming everything goes well, is as follows:
1.) Send manuscript out for book reviews this weekend.
2.) Reviews will be received 2-3 weeks after submission.
3.) Final retouches to book cover.
4.) Submit to Amazon for print and eBook. Book should be available approximately 7 days after submission.
5.) Submit to Barnes & Noble for availability on the nook. Submit to Smashwords for availability on other electronic platforms (may take up to 2 months).
Dear god, I hope this goes according to plan. This whole thing has been emotionally exhausting!
