I got a lovely email from a woman from a local writer's group here in Nashville.
She wanted an update on my contract process for Premium Press America
So, for any inquiring minds out there, all systems are go. I sat down with George and smoothed out a couple of details that were bugging me. We reprinted the whole kit and caboodle, signed it and it is now pinned to my wall where I cans ee it every day and remember what I have acheieved. Because otherwise, I sometimes think I just made all of that up!
I got to edit the proofs a few weeks back (*squee!*) and the font is very nice (very close to what I originally wrote it in,"Book Antiqua"!). No word on cover art yet, but my beloved publisher's assistant tells me she already had to put the kaibash on one that was just plain wrong in every way imaginable. But she has a file of images and she knows what I want and (best of all) she loves the book, so I know she'll fight for me. And I trust her judgement.
All in all, all is well.A Year and A Day
is slated to hit CVS stores in the first or second week of May and online retailers should have access to it by the second or third week of May.
If that changes, I will let y'all know.
