I am now the proud owner of two ISBN's! Man, that makes this whole thing seem serious. It's one of those steps you really can't take back and says, "Hey! I got a book coming! And it's going to be in print!"
I think one of the things I'm looking forward to the most is placing my hardback on the selves of my library at home. It will be next to all the classics I own and love. Me, Troy M. Costisick next to Dickens, Tolkien, Dostoevsky, Golding, Poe, Stevenson, and all the rest.
I can't wait to share it with you. I'm less than a month away from submitting my book to the cover and layout artists. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't nervous. But at the same time, it's all very exhilarating.
