The Long Road to Publication
It’s really happening, Hush- A Lakeview Novel is out.
I have been travelling down this road for a year and a half, four if you count my first book Shanghaied that still waits on my desk calling my name.
This path has had bumps, troughs, and occasional water hazards.
The views and destination are well worth it though.
My nerves jump through hoops and I wonder about switching to decaf. People are actually going to read my work. I need chocolate.
Publishing has changed with the onslaught of E books.
Now your work is launched on multiple platforms and at different times.
E books are usually first, allowing your work to collect reviews, that’s what we have decided to do.
After a couple of months comes the print, or hard copy, mid January for me.
If my reviews are good I’ll try and get into Costco, the big C. Toilet paper, beer and me.
To quote Frank Sinatra, “If I can make it there, I’ll make it any where…”
So many writers have been here before me. I am humbled.
Even books I may not like or agree with, I have to respect. I know the road they have traveled.
My awe for the written word has grown by leaps and bounds.
I am speechless, (which is rare).
So with out further ado may I suggest you pour yourself a steaming mug of hot cocoa, sit in your chair of choice, down load Hush- A Lakeview Novel, on your Kindle or Nook, (iBooks, this coming Monday) and enjoy.
