Whew! What a marathon it’s taken to get to this point. I’ve finally, FINALLY, submitted my debut novel as an e-book on Amazon Kindle. 12 chapters, 65,000 words… I’m relieved as well as fearful.
I’ve scoured over the text, spell-checking and honing grammar as to not get pummeled by internet English majors and Monday-Morning Authors. As I did the line-editing myself, I imagine there’s going to be a few errors, however, all-in-all I’m proud of myself for bringing this project to completion. I began the rough draft to this novel in November of 2020. Nanowrimo for the win!
I imagine the next three days are going to be some of the longest of my life, as it can take up to 72 hours for my book to go live. For those of you with Kindle Unlimited, feel free to check it out for free! If Cozy Mysteries (with a sprinkle of romance) isn’t your thing, please share my updates about this novel with your friends and family as any amount of momentum on the Amazon site will move me up the ladder.
A special thanks to Michelle Krueger for providing the original developmental edit. I look forward to working with you on Book 2 (cheerfully titled Carnage for Christmas). It’s been real, Santa.
