Book proof arrives!
Euphoric didn't begin to describe my feelings when I pulled The Cruiserweight's advance proof copy out of its package today. Two years of writing, editing, re-writing, re-planning, re-editing, submitting one finished manuscript after another to a long list of agents and publishers, and here it is - five days before Christmas!
There's no guarantee any of us will become wealthy off our work, but for me, seeing my completed work in print - and those who bought The Cruiserweight enjoying the book - are good enough. But on the off chance it does become a million-seller (though the concept may be far-fetched), I don't plan on complaining about such either.
Thanks to all of you who followed me along this journey, and especially to my agents and Night Publishing for taking me on as leaps of faith. Happy holidays!
