Dream come true times two

UNEXPECTEDLY, MILO will be available in bookstores on August 3 of this year, which feels like a million years from now.  We are currently in the process of preparing for the book’s publicity and marketing.  Galleys have been sent to a variety of media outlets and plans are in the works to publicize and promote the book. 

We have a couple original ideas in this regard that I look forward to sharing with you in the near future. 

Bookstores are also beginning to place their orders.    

In the wake of this preparation, I was recently asked by a bookseller if the publishing of my second novel has now become “old hat.”

I laughed.  Even though this is my second trip through the publishing process in just over a year, the process is just as fresh and exciting as it’s ever been.

“On the contrary,” I explained.  “Publishing my second novel is like have my dreams come true for a second time.”

I sort of hope that I always feel this way, no matter how many books I publish in the future.
