What a mixed couple of months. My dad was very sick and I managed to arrive home and spend time with him before he passed away. I am sad that he never got to see my first book actually published, but I know he is cheering me on.
Unfortunately I had to delay the go live date for Beginnings, but it finally went live end of May, just in time for me to put author on my immigration form when returning to Australia.
The paperback copy of Beginnings is in final proof stage, and Trials is complete, just going through editing not and will be able to reveal the cover soon - yeah!
And how very exciting, I am working on a new project with my husband, actually publishing some stories I wrote for our son when he was a baby. So I am keeping very busy.
Still working on Beginnings. I have had a re-write and it has improved the book no end, so my target reader tells me. I have also splashed out and had Chapter images done, which I am so rapt about. Just one more read through before it is back to the editor. After that I should have an idea of an actual reals date (although I am hoping to get some ARCs out this week). It has been a learning curve for me but I am getting very excited as I am so proud of what I have achieved.
A big month for me as I gear up to publish my first ever book. Who knew so much was involved. Thanks to my aunt, Avis, for her help editing and my son Sam for reading through and giving me ideas for the book. The biggest thanks goes to K.A. Last who has given me such great advice on how to self publish. It has been a blast and I cannot believe there is still so much more to do! And while I am getting Beginnings ready I have started writing the second book in the series so I can aim for a release date of this time next year.
Back off to the publishing world now, lots to do before I can give a final release date!
