A Light at the End of the Tunnel

Hooray! I got the good news from my editor at The Wild Rose Press that Lost in Paradise is finally in its last production stages and should be released by the end of this month.

Things were at a standstill for a while, but with my upcoming appearance at the Independent and Small Press Book Fair on December 1 (free to the public, by the way!), they're pushing to have it ready for electronic sale there.

That would be nice.

So I'm in a bit of a crunch this week, trying to do all the final editing. It's interesting because with my other publisher, I didn't do any of the formatting. But with TWRP, I have to go through the manuscript and check spaces after periods, single vs. double quotation marks, formatting of em-dashes, etc. I guess it's because they're a very small press and they don't have someone solely assigned to that job.

I also have to think of cool promotional things to do for this novel! Hmm...yet another thing to add to my overflowing "To Do" list.

BUT...you should be able to purchase the electronic version before the holidays - exciting, right?? And in case you haven't scanned my sidebar in a while, here's a reminder of how yummy the cover is:

Yahoo!! And, yes, no final line editors there, at least not yet.

Can't wait to read this!

Well congrats and thanks for scaring me all at the same time. Eek! I'll be doing my own line edits. This isn't going to be pretty.

Nah, Mel, don't be scared - the editors are VERY helpful. It's just tedious work. Underneath, it's still exciting 'cause it means you're going to have a published book!!!
