Last Thursday, I finished my final revisions, based on the suggestions of my editor, and then I immediately emailed that sucker to the copyeditor for, basically, a high-level proofread.
Which means . . . happy dance–I’m done!
Sure, I still have to write the acknowledgments and whatnot. I’ll do that while I’m waiting for my copyeditor to get the edited manuscript back to me on Friday. Next I send the final copy with all the extras to the formatter to convert it to a Kindle ebook as well as a print version for Amazon. By the end of the month, I should see the proofs of my cover from the designer, and then I’ll upload all of that to Amazon.
But the story is finished, and I am really happy with how it turned out. It’s gone through a lot from first draft to final, and I like where it ended up. I hope you will, too!
