What a long way I’ve come since my last post in 2012. I remember when I wrote that, I really didn’t think there was any hope. I thought it was over for my writing, for my book. But it’s not.
I don’t remember exactly what did it, but earlier this year, a wave of inspiration hit me so hard and I finished Behind the Chimera. I didn’t just finish it a little bit…I finish it a lot. Like the entire thing, lol. And it was the greatest feeling. So I did what I had planned. I sent it out to a huge number of literary agents. And not surprisingly, they all said no.
But that was okay. Because I knew Plan B was to self-publish. And that’s exactly what I’m doing. I’ve commissioned an awesome artist, Jonathan Hunt, to do my book cover. It’s costing me $600, but it’s money well spent. Besides, I knew my cover was going to be the most expensive part. I need something amazing. Something beautiful. Something to capture an audience. And that’s just what I’m going to get. 😉
His deadline is September 15, so if it takes him that long, I plan on publishing the following day.
I’m so excited. I know I can do this. It’s all coming together! My book, after over 10 years of floating around, is finally going to be published and read by the world! AAAAAAAAH!!!!!
I’ll post here closer to the release date. 🙂 See ya soon!
