Book release party for family and friends was a smashing success.  So humbled to be surrounded by loving, gifted, supportive people. Writing isn't a solitary endeavor. Writers need their peeps!

The French Girl's War now available on Kindle!

 

 

03/05/2014

Go to Amazon.com and search, The French Girl's War—the novel is ready!

 

 

02/27/2014

I signed off on my final proof today—a day early!

 

 

02/19/2014

New proof due on 2/28. Assuming all the edits are made, I'll approve. Then, the book will be ready in March!

 

 

02/10/2014

Book proof came in—even though it wasn't the final version (that should come in the next two days), it still felt wonderful to hold in my hot little hand! Stay tuned for the real, final deal!

 

 

02/07/2014

Cover proof came in—unfortunately, it was the prior version, not the final approved one. Publisher quickly fixed it, but only after FedEx-ing me the original, incorrect one. Cool bonus—I'll have a one-of-a-kind cover proof AND the real deal. Sorta like those old "Revenge of the Jedi" posters! Woo-hoo! Collectible should arrive Monday and the final cover proof on Tuesday. That means it looks like Wednesday 2/11 will be my GO day! Hang on!

 

 

02/05/2014

Approved! Pre-press proof came in.  It looked great and is now readying for production. I can taste it!

 

 

01/26/2014

Formal formal fixes submitted. Awaiting final proof.  I thought writing the thing was the hard part...

 

 

01/11/2014

Sent in my edited proof for final formatting.... So exciting!

 
12/31/2013

Just in time for New Year's Eve, have submitted my requested format changes to the publisher. Hang tight, people.  Looking for a January release!

 

 

12/22/2013

Received my proof for review. Have decided to change my body font ever so slightly. This is my book after all! I want it just right.

 

 

12/19/2013

Sent over my revised draft, confirmed my cover, and am now awaiting the compilation for my blue line final revisions!

 

 

12/7/2013

Completed my revisions after great feedback from my editor!

 

 

11/19/2013

New cover looks good. Nearly done. Check it out here on my homepage.

Working on my edits.  Looking good!

 

 

11/06/2013

Edits back from my copyeditor came in. Fantastic! Great support and insights. Won't be long now!

 

 

10/27/2013

Marketing and cover copy has been edited and approved for The French Girl's War! I have an ISBN number and a Library of Congress number. This is happening, people!

 

 

10/26/2013

Cover art options have been provided and this will look beautiful. Can't wait for you all to see it!
