Finally it has happened.

My book - The Creators

Last night with Elizabeth's help - I checked and double-checked my edited and reviewed copy of my novel and with great trepidation sent it off to Balboa.

This morning I woke to an email to say that it has now moved on to the Cover and cover-text phase.  How exciting!  They will work on the artwork and the wording and then send me a template for my comments.  I am quivering with excitement.  It seems like this has been a forever project.

I wrote my book nearly 4 years ago and planned to publish it immediately.  I am so glad I didn't.  I have learnt so much along the journey. The book is richer and better written, and hopefully one day will be a best seller.

So now what?

Well book two is sitting on my desk and the edits are well underway.  I want it ready to go before the end of the year and then depending on the success of Book One, I will publish it in early 2013.  Also November this year, will see the writing of Book Four. Yes, Book three is also written. So it is a series.

How exciting! You could be the next Stephanie Myers I think her name is, the one who wrote the Twilight series. I'm so happy for you Beverly, all that hard work is now coming to life... way to go!

Hi everyone, not sure how this is going to work, but Beverly is in hospital. Ivan had to rush her there last night with either food poisoning or a gastro bug, she really doesn't look well, very low blood pressure, and on a very strict liquid diet, with saline bags and anti-biotic drip as well, she sends her love to everyone. I will keep you all updated. Love Dorothy (Mom/Granny)
