May 1st was a big day for us.
It’s was the first day of production for our book – River of Despair.
We are so grateful that the Lord opened up this door of opportunity with Tate Publishing. It’s been a long journey since the day Dad came to me with the plot for our first book. He was so excited. The pieces were just fitting together on the page and he wanted me to help make it all come to life. A few years later, lots of hard work, a ton of writing and re-writing, many, many book proposals mailed, and here we are.
Production typically lasts about 8 months. Then there is a 90 day window for pre-ordering and then the official release date. It hardly seems possible. This first month – May – is the Copy Editing Phase. They’re checking our punctuation, spelling and formatting. There’s not much for us to do right now but wait.
We will be posting updates as we move forward on our journey to publication. It’s a dream come true for both of us and we couldn’t be more excited. But we also know we have a lot of hard work ahead of us.
