You give them life, you pour yourself into them, but it doesn’t really feel real until you hold the actual paperback copy in your hands.
I think the cover came out pretty good. Thanks again to all of you who gave me input on the design.
Even though I have done two children’s books full of illustrations that I did, this is the first novel that I put a map into. So far, in my first read through, I have only found two small typos in the first third of the book. I can fix those. All the margins and page numbers and indents look good. I will put a link on the blog soon.
