I've been listening to ALL IN by LIFEHOUSE. It kind of says everything I've been feeling about the release of Incendiary. Thank you for having my back a few weeks ago when I was having doubts. Your comments and support have really helped me get to this better place. NOW GET PUMPED because Incendiary might be published sooner than I expected. I don't have a date, but I just found out something completely awesome, so keep your fingers crossed! XOXOX (Thank you, Courtney Houston, for posting this song on my Facebook page!)
CreateSpace did something awesome. I had a conversation with the team leader on my project yesterday. She let me know that they're doing things differently now. Now, instead of formatting the interior and then working on the cover, they're going to do both at the same time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What does that mean? That means that when I get my first proof in seven days (YES, I SAID SEVEN DAYS, NOT TWO WEEKS) I should have the PDF (interior format) of Incendiary and the first cover mock-ups!!!!!
I totally girl-screamed into the phone, "YOU'RE KIDDING ME?" when she told me that. (It was really bad of me because I already have the voice of an eight-year-old and it gets even higher when I'm psyched.) Here's what that means big picture: it may cut 3-4 weeks off the process. Eeeeepppppp!!!! I feel like I need to be cautiously optimistic about that because this is publishing and anything can happen to delay things, but squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! *bouncing up and down * And then, WHAT IF the first round of cover mock-ups ROCK? If that happens, we could be done in a few weeks! (Trying not to jinx myself.)
I will keep you posted with EVERY development! When I get a date, you will know first. (Actually, second because I will know first, but you get my point.) Love you guys!
