It’s Finally Done.

For all of you friends, loved ones, and strangers who have shown enthusiasm for my book, I say to you:

At this point, all that’s left is making some decisions for publishing rights, and procedural stuff like writing a blurb, etc etc.

I’m excited. I’m nervous. I feel a compulsion to edit more.

But at some point, you got to set it free. Trust in your own hard work. Embrace the end.

So I’m happy to announce the book should be live very, very soon. Probably within the next few days.

Thank you all for your support and well-wishes.

Things that are common knowledge for me are still new for authors who spent all or most of their time under the traditional system. So I know a lot, but I’m still learning, too. And you have to keep learning. Nothing is static in publishing anymore. Advice that was written in stone two years ago is inapplicable today. Keep on your toes. Keep learning. At the same time…
