Book Upload Complete!
I just published a book tonight! How often can someone say that? I'd like to hope the magic of seeing a story transform into a tangible item will never disappear!
In 1-2 business days A Perfect Miracle will show up online for purchase!
Book Release Update!
It's finally going to happen! The publisher is working on final formatting this week, then the proofs are uploaded and voila! the book is ready to order! The eBook version of A Perfect Miracle could be available as soon as Black Friday! The other versions of the book (hard cover and softcover) will be available to order the week of Dec. 2, 2019! I will post links on my homepage, when they are available!
If you read my book, please write a review and post it on the website where you purchased it! Thanks for your support!
Interior Proof is Turned In!
The final version of the interior proof is back at the publisher! It will take about 7 days to format the book and then I will be ready to upload it! I've e-mailed the publisher for a time frame and release date, so I will keep you posted! Hopefully it will be ebook ready just after Thanksgiving and the paper copies won't be far behind!
I will offer the book in ebook, softcover, and hardcover format, so you can pick your preference!
Thanks for following along on this journey!
Jacobs Landing is a town in Maine that nourishes romance and convinces even the most jaded, love is possible. A Perfect Miracle is the first book in a series of romance novels set in this seaside town. It tells of the promise of love not once, but twice in a lifetime, and the healing power only a pet can bring.
A second chance at love is the last thing on Gabrielle Levesque’s mind when she finds a stray dog on her porch. However, an appointment at the local veterinarian's office brings her face-to-face with her high school crush and the possibility of happiness after heartache.
Dr. Andrew Leland feels an instant connection with the girl he never forgot. But how does a guy get close to a grieving widow, especially while juggling single parenthood? He offers friendship to Gabrielle, while waiting for the perfect moment to declare his interest.
Can he persuade Gabrielle to open her heart again? Andrew will need a perfect miracle to convince her they belong together.
Writer to Author to Small Business Owner?
When I first decided to publish my book A Perfect Miracle, I knew it would be a multi-stage project. I just didn't realize it would be a crash course in small business entrepreneurship!
Thankfully, I've had some great advice from my accountant, family members, and friends who are a lot more business-savvy than I am. It is definitely a work in progress, so please be patient with me as I learn the ins and outs of publishing a book and the business that runs parallel to the publication process!
When will the book be published? I hope before Thanksgiving 2019! I returned the internal proof of the book this week to my publisher, with correction recommendations, and I should have that back sometime next week. I have the opportunity to make another round of changes, so how long it takes, depends on me. Once the internal proof is approved, a release date isn't too far behind!
I will keep you posted! Thanks for following along on this journey!
