This is IT, kids
The announcement. The one I’ve been waiting for make for a long time now.
I got the latest final copy via UPS last night around 6:30. Once again, I delayed a while in opening it, because after all the snags, I was afraid of what I might see. But finally I did, and looked at the front.
It was perfect. No more cut-off fingertips.
Then I flipped to the back. Yup, they moved up all the copy, and it was no longer sitting on top of the bottom edge. However, for inexplicable reasons, they also moved the ISBN box up, so that the copy that wraps above it now still too close. But it clears it.
You know what? I don’t care. I’m done. It’s the back cover, and it’s 99% perfect. Enough is enough.
Soooooo… this is it.
***MY BOOK IS AVAILABLE!***
At the moment, it’s only in paperback, although I will have a Kindle version soon. You can buy it at the CreateSpace e-store, or on Amazon. It’s $12.99 at both sites (but FYI; if you buy it at the CreateSpace site, I get a bigger cut). 😀
I honestly don’t know what to do first, after I send this blog. I guess I’ll compose a tweet. Update my FetLife profile. Give it the weekend to sink in, and then think about how I’ll go about marketing this book and spreading the word. But the one thing they recommend over and over at CS is having a blog and keeping people apprised of all the book info from there, and that I have.
Still can’t believe this is happening. I started this book in January 2010. I reread over 50 paper journals and countless online posts and blogs, collecting history. I edited and re-edited and re-edited. I envisioned a cover… and ended up going with something completely different from what I’d first imagined, but I love it. And now, Friday, August 19, 2011, I’m finally announcing that it’s done.
I sincerely hope people will like it. I hope, if you do, you’ll talk about it, recommend it, help me get it out there more. What Happens to Naughty Girls, at this time, has sold 200 copies. I want this one to do better. It’s much more personal. It’s me.
I’m so excited, I don’t even mind (too much) that I wasn’t Chrossed today.
Thank you, everyone, for following along with my process. Have a great weekend, y’all.
