The story of my life...late. I would have posted earlier but I couldn't sleep last night. It was probably around 3:00 in the morning before I finally feel asleep. Then I got up and turned on the news and saw the recent developments on catching the suspect(s) of the bombing and couldn't stop watching it. I finally said to myself, "Time to turn it off and post my blog."
So, hear I am with really no new news at this point. From my understanding Mikey will be over on Saturday with the fixes of the cover, spine, back, and map of the book. Then we will be back on schedule for the formatting. I sincerely hope so.
It has been a long week and very emotional for me since I have been working to get to this point for 4 and a half years. It will happen though and I am trying to keep my excitement going and not let all these set backs damper my enthusiasm. It has been tough, though.
I am sure most writers go through this with their first book, either with trying to self-publish, of even waiting for the publisher to get their books up on line. I know it's a normal process, but I guess when your the one going through it, that's not much of a comfort.
But, hopefully now we will get it done and can put our energy in more of a positive light with social media and the novella we are writing.
We did, however, finish revisions on a new chapter in the novella and plan to meet with our critique partners next week...moving forward. The novella seems to be going great so far and, to me anyway, sounds like another great story in our made up world of the Djen.
I wouldn't have it any other way. I love the story and believe you will also. Stay tuned for new developments. I will keep to up to date on the process of our publishing and on the new book(s). I appreciate those who have been so supportive. Thank you Ryan for your insight this past week and I hope you enjoy the book, Fable.
See you next Tuesday, Lisa
