Woohoo! Approved! Time to Hurry Up and Wait...

So, here is the final full cover for the Shades anthology.

I'm almost done.

This morning I received an email informing me that Createspace approved my manuscript and cover! Woohoo!

Now I have finally reached the stage where I order a proof for review. I have already done so, and hopefully I will be holding the first copy of my book in my hands in about ten days. If that copy meets my approval, then I think all that is left to do is to let them know they can put it up for sale, and then for me to get to work on uploading the ebook.

So now I sit in sort of a limbo. I suppose I can go ahead and incorporate the very last edits from the book manuscript into the ebook manuscript, but that will take about thirty minutes. After that, it's "hurry up and wait". Ten days of not being able to do much of anything.

I suppose I could start thinking about picking up the Dead Stop manuscript and figuring out how to go forward with it, but I'm still really focused on Shades and I probably will be until it's published. Argh! This is going to be a long ten days!


  1. Yay! Congrats! Hope the 10 days goes quick!

  2. Let me guess, you never waited for Christmas day with any patience either? LOL. Congrats, brother.

  3. I don't remember my parents putting presents under the tree ten days before Christmas. I think that would have ended badly.
