If I’m honest, for the past few months this whole book publishing deal has felt pretty unreal. In February I signed the contract, in March I submitted the final manuscript and then…well since then I have just been waiting.
I have no idea what happens behind the scenes of a publishing company and so from my perspective it just kind of feels like a waiting limbo. I know my publication date is Spring 2014 – but what happens between now and then – I have no idea.
Which kind of makes the whole process feel pretty unreal.
And then last night I attended the publishers summer party.
And I met REAL people. Like REAL people who work in publishing and who publish books. I won’t pretend that I have learned anymore about how a book gets published, or what actually happens behind the scenes – but what I do know – is this is REAL.
And that feels REALLY fabulous – because this is REALLY going to happen!
And I can’t tell you how *relieved* I feel, because I think I have been wondering over the past few months if maybe I had imagined all this and did I actually really write an entire book and was it really going to be published.
But now, I have met the REAL people who are going to make my book REAL. This isn’t all some story I have made up in my head. This is really going to happen.
And that just feels so UNREAL!!!!
