I've Done It!

It's official. I have signed with BookSurge a print-on-demand publishing company and a division of Amazon.com. Now the work continues. I know I have not been around a lot lately, but finishing the final, final edits is taking lots of my time. Hopefully by the end of August it will all be done. I also have to get the manuscript ready for submission and meet their submission requirements.

I'm also working with a graphic artist on the book cover. It's all very exciting. I have it narrowed down to two different concepts and I'm excited to see what he comes up with.

I promise to pop up now and again and keep you updated as to the progression of this process. Life is very busy, but I want you all to know that I'm thinking of you all. I'm still here.

Thank you all for continuous support, love and encouragement. I'm truly grateful.

Have a great week.
