Exciting news today! I got home later than usual this evening and there was a box leaning against my door. I knew that box contained the proof of my book!
I ripped that box open to find my book! It was my first time seeing my 350+ hours of work in print and I was so pleased! All my fears of this book being a disappointment to me and to you all instantly vanished. I can tell you with confidence, I am so proud to send these out to all of you who pre-ordered and sell them to, God willing, many many more people!
Still some work to do
The book isn’t done just yet, though. Unfortunately, there were some weird things that showed up on a couple pages that weren’t a part of my design. I’m looking into how to fix that printing problem. I still need to read through the entire book one more time to make sure it’s all good to go. I’ve read through the content so many times on my computer, but there’s something different about reading it in print. Often times you catch things you didn’t see before, but I’m really hoping my editors and I did an amazing job beforehand and there won’t be any further changes.
I’m hoping to get all of my edits done by Friday afternoon and submit them, so I can get another proof before printing all the copies. Please pray that once I make my edits, I’ll receive a new proof in the mail that is exactly the way I want it to be, so then I can print all the books that will be going out to you! I need everything to happen smoothly and promptly in order to release this book the first or second week of November.
Anyway, that’s my update for today! Stay tuned for more updates over the coming weeks!
