Finishing Touches or the One Where I Realize Just How Much Work I Have Left to Do.

So... I've spent the day working on finishing touches for LOSING IT before I begin the process of formatting it for Kindle and Nook.

Now... I say finishing touches, which makes you think I'd be finished, right?

WRONG.

This is my first self-publishing experience, and I seriously have to give mad respect to all the indie authors that have come before me. This is tough job that takes a lot of work. I knew this going in, of course, but that doesn't make the process any less daunting.

There's only me standing between those typos and the final draft. I think I'm going to have nightmares of finding a typo on the day of publication. Seriously.

So, of course, I'm obsessively checking things and making changes, even though I would have sworn to you two weeks ago it was done.

The editing bug has struck again. :)

Anyway, after a day of editing, I thought I deserved some fun. So... I'm sharing one of my favorite quotes from LOSING IT!

This particular quote comes right after Bliss has a pretty stressful experience. I think it about sums up the way she feels for large portions of the book and also tells you a bit about her sense of humor.

I wanted to crawl into a hole and die.
I wanted to crawl into a hole at the bottom of a ravine, then be buried under an avalanche, and then die.
I wanted… to cry. 

Well, there you have it! I'm sure there will be more quotes and fun tidbits in coming weeks! 

LOSING IT releases October 16th in ebook on both Amazon and B&N!
