Publication!

Before everyone gets too excited, I'm not published (yet!), but Husband has had his first book published. This one is co-authored; I can hardly wait to see his own book in hard copy.

It's been an interesting process watching this book (and his own book due out next week) grow from a concept to a real printed book that I've held in my hands! What struck me the most was how s-l-o-w the whole publishing process is. It's given me a new perspective on the road we must take to get our stories out there.  And it's shown me that any aspiring author needs patience, patience, patience...and a little bit of Lady Luck's favour.

You can admire Husband's book cover by visiting his blog!

Wow, Judy!! Congrats to your husband! Yay for him getting a book published AND for having such a supportive wife :).

Cool, Judy. Please send congrats to Beric. How long did the process take? It seems like years since you first mentioned this, but I'm really hoping it's not quite that long.

Way to go, Beric!

Lady Glamis said...

Awesome! And the cover is very nice. Congrats to both of you!

Thank you, dear ladies, for your kind comments. I've passed on your good wishes to Beric and he's still smiling! Now we're just waiting for his next book...

CLAIRE: the whole process was about 18 months. Once the final edits were done, though, it was very quick (a few weeks). But Beric was working on his other book at the same time, so perhaps if he'd only been working on one book it would have been quicker.

Wow Judes! Awesome to see Beric's name in print. Although I do have to admit that the subject matter doesn't exactly rock my boat! LOL! :-)

I'll be waaaaayyyy more excited when I see your name in print! :-)

Keep writing!
