I got up feeling happy. My book, A Question of Time, is due to be released Oct. 13. All my hard work finally seeing fruition.
Then I opened my email.
I said some unladylike words because I had sent the changes days ago! Shortly after I received the galleys! Are they still floating around in the ether somewhere?
Not only that, but I had sent info for a teaser video, but the videographer wrote also this morning that the form I had sent in was blank.
No, no, I filled it in! Where did the words go?
Is there a word thief hidden in the bowels of my computer?
I hastily re-sent the material, keeping my fingers crossed. Which makes it difficult to type, by the way.
Novice writers think that once they write “The End” their work is finished.
I know better. The road to publication is never smooth. There are bumps on the road right up to release day.
I was too happy when I got up. Now I’m going to wait to celebrate when I actually see the book on Amazon.
