Well, at least it smells like Christmas at my house now…I am finally at the point of getting some Christmas baking done. Yay! At least my family is celebrating. And I think that maybe…just maybe my Christmas shopping is under control. Did that just come from me? The girl who just earlier this week was nearly bawling because it was all craziness!?! Why, yes, I believe it did. Things are starting to slow down…I’m starting to slow down and take advantage of some of the merriment of the season. But there are some exciting things happening on the book front!
Cover Art. Keep posted…the next time you hear from me, it will (most likely) be for a cover reveal!!! I have been communicating with Clean Read’s (my publisher’s) wonderful cover artist about the cover for “The General’s Wife” and I couldn’t be more excited.
Blog Tour. I am also getting things geared up for another Blog Tour. Yes, the last one was a bit of work, but the amazing people at Historical Fiction Virtual Book Tours organized everything and made it a much less painful process. I will definitely be utilizing their services again!
Galleys. My very supportive husband and I are each making our way through the Galleys. For those of you who don’t know what that is (as I’ve been just throwing that term around)…it’s the final mock-up of the book. It’s the final (and most crucial) step in the process. I have to go through and make sure everything is as it should be. As much as I’d like to do some more rewriting (as every author would, I’m sure), we’re looking for commas out of place or misspelled words…things that might have been missed in the last round of editing.
All in all, it is exciting times, my friends. This holiday season has much to bring for me 🙂 As well I hope it does for you, but more than anything, I hope you have time to slow down and enjoy it.
