So in preparation for self-publishing for the first time I just finished an edit of my manuscript. Now I’ve lost count of just how many revisions this book has been through, but this one had extra weight. Every once and awhile while I had the thought, “People might actually read this,” and I felt a mixture of excitement and panic that almost got in the way of what I was doing. But I kept going and, yay!, now it’s ready to go off to my two proofreaders.
It’s getting closer.
Now I just have to design a cover, figure out the marketing/pricing, do another edit based off the comments from my proofreaders, and probably six other things I haven’t even thought of get.
Excitement and panic seem about right.
