So if you’ve been following my Twitter feed at all, you’ll know that the paperback copy of my book is very close to being done. And if you haven’t, hey—the paperback copy of my book is very close to being done! We got the first proof copy last week, and after a few hours *cough*afullday*cough* admiring it and taking shameless photos, we made a few adjustments and sent the file back for a new proof.

Needless to say, I am super excited by this. No, that doesn’t capture it: I AM SUPER EXCITED ABOUT THIS!! Paper copies of my books are something that I did not want to skip on, despite the fact that a lot of indie authors go ebook-only. And I get that—the vast majority of sales are ebooks, so I am given to understand, and for some it kind of seems like a waste of time. But a paper copy of a book that I wrote is something that I’ve been dreaming of for, oh, only my whole life, and finally holding it in my hands is just… it’s insane.

Anyway, tomorrow starts my first Big! Splashy! Sale! event, so expect a Big! Splashy! Sale! post sometime tomorrow morning. I’ve also bought my first ever advertising to go along with it, so we’ll see how that goes—should be interesting, at the very least.

Since this is kind of a grab-bag blog post I’ll wrap this up by saying that progress on Book Two is going well. I should be done with the bulk of the work by January, and then it’s on to more production efforts. It’s offically slated for a Spring 2015 release, and has been titled Fixing Fate.
