Authors, Writers, Publishers, and Book Readers
So... after months of dreaming it, thinking it over, writing it, re-writing it, designing the cover, doing the video trailer, editing it, re-editing it, formatting it.... I finally have come to the end. The final formatting edits were sent to the publisher today - and now...it is only the cover to give the final approval too. Then it is off to printing!
So as I sit back and think about the fact that I have finished my second book in a single year, I find myself filled with not only a sense of accomplishment but a sense of satisfaction. You knows if these books will ever really make money, but the fact that in a couple week, I will be holding my second book in print amazes me. Especially since it was just last October that the first thoughts of writing ever graced my mind.
How do you all feel once you have completed your book? You know that time after you know you finished the edits - and you are waiting for that final copy to make it to your hands?
Congrats Stacy, it's wonderful knowing that you've put yourself out there and created something.
I'm very happy for you. When you've finished with the cover designs, will you post a copy of it so that we can all have a look?
I know exactly what you mean. Feel like you can breathe easier and all that.
Well, you're on your way now so keep on writing.
Mariah - It is funny - in my first book - those were my last two things to do too. In my second book - those two things were my first to write. The first book was dedicated to my family - that was easy - the second dedicated to my 3 best friends, mainly because they were introduced into the series in book 2.
The way times flies - Sept 2012 will be here before you know it!!! I can't believe it is almost October!
Congrats, Stacy! Wow. Quite an accomplishment. :)
It feels wonderful to complete a project. I'm waiting on a release date and I've got to say - I'm delighted. :)
I'm very happy for you and wish you great success.
