I finally had the experience of being able to hit publish on the KDP site today...amazing feeling! The e-book will be ready for early purchase in just 72 short hours. The paperback will be ready by June 1st. It's been a very long journey to get to this point, but in so many ways that has been better for me rather than seeing early success. Writing the book was the easy part, everything that came after was the real challenge.
Editing was hard, deleting content or characters you fell in love with, even harder. Reading books on writing and taking classes was such a benefit. When I look back on this process I will remember all the ups and downs, but more than that, I am grateful for all the family and friends that supported me along the way. My husband was my first editor and the greatest amateur marketing manager one could ask for.
I know everyone's path to this moment is different, more than anything I am feeling thankful.
