So excited! I can’t describe how good it feels to hold a copy of your own book, even if it’s only the first proof, even if you can see minor defects on the cover that you instantly want to fix. The interior formatting looks AWESOME–I love how it all turned out! My pencil drawings look great in print and the font is clear and easy to read. I used 12 Garamond, very professional looking.
So for my list of things to be thankful for this year, I am thankful for all the writers out there who have gone through this journey already and have offered many words of advice–thank you! I’m thankful for the support of my family, in particular my daughter who is excited to tell her friends that her mom is an ‘author’, lol. And I’m thankful the the technology that allows this new renaissance in publishing and sharing of the written word.
So a very Happy Thanksgiving to all!
