THE ALIGNMENT, Book One in my series, will release this month. Cover art and formatting are complete. A paperback proof is expected to arrive on Friday. If it passes final inspection, I configure the Kindle version and push the PUBLISH button.
This has been a four-year journey that included countless revisions and a trek through the purgatory of querying the traditional machine. But all that time, and the rejections, have strengthened my writing and my final product. I truly believe this book is better as a result of me going indie and keeping control over my work. I hope readers will agree.
I’ve updated my Fiction page with details about THE ALIGNMENT and the other books in the series. As soon as I push that PUBLISH button, I go straight to work on Book Two.
Look for an announcement about THE ALIGNMENT soon!
Congratulations! I’m very excited for you!
How soon will the paperback version be available? And how can I get a signed copy?
Paperback and Kindle version will release on the same day, very very soon. A signed copy? I’ll have to send you one! :)
I admire your perseverance more than you could know.
Thanks, Carl. And by perseverance, are you sure you don’t mean “stubborn foolhardy determination?” Wait, strike that. I like perseverance.
Congrats Kay! I saw your book cover in the book cover designer submission for November, and just had to check you out. I’m doing the same, submitting, rewriting, polishing my manuscript but also self-publishing shorter works. All the best! I have your book on my TBR list.
How cool of you to track me down! And thanks for the comment. It made my day! I hope you enjoy The Alignment when you read it. Good luck to you!
