It was most excellent to come home from work today and to finally be able to hold my book in my hands. It looks better than I even imagined it would. Tomorrow we go through it thoroughly to see if there are any final tweaks, and then it will be ready for ordering on Amazon, and shortly thereafter in all other major and minor bookstores everywhere.
It truly is a dream come true! Now, back to my regularly scheduled writing. Hayley and the Beast was already at 1,000 words, when I felt that it needed to go a different direction, so I rewrote my outline, taking it from two pages to seven. It shall be an epic weekend of writing, and I hope to finish off the story by Sunday.
Happy Thanksgiving to all my American readers. Enjoy your turkey tomorrow!
