Finally, after all this time, the last and final step toward producing my book is here. The writing, editing, revising, layout, and cover are all completed and now all I have to do is upload the files for final assessment by printer and ebook companies. WHEW! It's been a long time coming.
I hope to do the initial uploads this weekend. Then the folks at Amazon have to check my files as do the folks at IngramSpark, where my books are printed. With there being a bit of a paper shortage now-a-days (what isn't there a shortage of anymore, right?), it will take a little extra time to get my proofs back, but by the beginning of February, I think everything will finally set.
So all that's left to do is choose a publishing date. I'm thinking early March before spring starts. That way, as winter lingers on longer than any of us would want, everyone will have a nice new book to read. I like the sound of that.
We're almost there, everyone. Hang tight, you're going to enjoy the ride!
