*Squeal of girly excitement!*
Alright, I know I just posted about my impatience, but apparently having Some patience has paid off! My formatter sent over the formatted copy for Print (POD), so I was able to send that along to my cover designer to adjust the hard copy cover! It’s really been excellent timing because I have had the chance to review which way is best to publish, as there are options available for different venues. I’ll say this: It’s beautiful. Perhaps I’m being biased, but it’s honestly beautiful work! I cannot wait for others to see how the inside looks, and knowing the cover and inside will be a testament to the hard work that everyone has put into it makes me feel good! I am so lucky to be working with such talented people on this!
Having this copy available makes this all the more real, as though it was only a dream and all previous steps were leading to a closed attic door where you know a whole new reality exists beyond. It’s one where you can pretend and dress up in the clothing stored away in the chests, find the letters of your grandparents, and great grandparents and discover their first loves. I will finally be able to open that door and explore this new world, slightly anxious but nearly running through that threshold.
Ready or not, here I come!
