I finally got to see my novel in print!
There are some issues with this proof, so I resubmitted with corrections, and now the paperback is live! You can find it here on Amazon.
I took photos:
What’s neat is that I ordered ONE author copy to check the proof (it still hasn’t arrived – boo!), and she ordered two for her kids, and then I resubmitted the file to fix some problems. So there are literally only three copies from my very first attempt. *smile*
I of course addressed them to each kid, signed both copies, tried to think of something to say, and left a note that it is 1 of 3 of first print attempt. I’ll hopefully have those in the mail in the next few days! Our post office is rarely open.
So, huzzah! It was a shock to see them and hold them in my hands. They were bigger than I anticipated, but I wrote a long book so I shouldn’t have been surprised.
