So that’s it then. After months and months of waiting I clicked onto Amazon this morning and there it is. Finally published. I finished my first draft in November 2012, had interest from a publisher in August 2013 and received a contract in February 2014. It’s taken the last year and some months to redraft and edit then put it out into the market place.
And I can’t even remember when I started writing it! I certainly have fairly complete drafts from as far back as mid-2010. I never imagined when I wrote ‘The end’ with a flourish in my first draft that the remainder of the journey would take so long.
Along the way, however, I’ve met some fine people who have helped me to improve my writing and how to think about things differently. People with lots of dedication to the art and craft of books, without whom I wouldn’t have reached the end. To them, a million thanks.
