Actually, I am one of the most eager for it all to happen. And it will happen–soon. Today I cleared the digital proof of the paperback version and ordered a paper proof. I always do that because of the cover. There’s always a chance that what you see on the screen will not be what you get on the paperback. And so that will take a few days to get here from CreateSpace. When that gets approved, the next step for me will be to order a quantity–probably about 20–which will be used for the contest as well as for reviewers. That will take about another week.
By that time, we will be very close to April 1, which is the date I’ve been announcing for my launch. I still have to prep my ebook version, and that should happen in the next week or so.
It’s like waiting for a baby being born. Been there many times before, but that doesn’t make it any less exciting.
