Cathy has forwarded the final internal and external files, including the cover which looks fantastic. The base of the cover is on the homepage, but more has since been added that I will not be releasing any time soon. I am very excited. The next step is sending the final version into distribution and developing an eBook file for it also. I have read fellow author friend's eBooks, but haven't actually looked into it for myself. Cathy hopes to have the eBook file over to me today. So what about availability?
With the book going into distribution soon, it might take a week or two (I'll let you know if it's longer) for the files to be printed. By that point, I should have it on this website and other online stores where you can order it and it will be specially printed and shipped to you. Otherwise, you can purchase the eBook file and have it right away. So it is "published" just not on a large-scale. But you'll definitely see how this cover turned out. Cover structure and text was done by Cathy, artwork by Rose Pokrywka. So when will it be printed on a larger scale?
Depending on sales, I could choose to leave it in distribution and only have it available to order online. However, my goal is to traditional publish with help from literary agent, Andy. You can read the other posts for more info, but he is the key to contacting large and medium publishers. Yes, medium publishers, which I'm actually very comfortable going with now. If everything goes well, I should be signing with a bigger publisher in May. SO...
