A Magical Process
I am living inexciting times! Everything is now coming together rapidly in preparation for the publication of my first book, 'Merry Midwinter'. All the edits have now been completed; the design and wording for the cover is agreed upon and complete, the publishing date decided upon.
As this is my first book to be published, the whole process has been something of a learning curve, but I have to say that all the staff at Unbound have made it as easy and pleasant for me as humanly possible and I am full of gratitude and appreciation for their unstinting kindness, understanding, advice and support. Bringing a new book into reality is a magical process - the literal materialisation of the author's ephemeral thoughts into something physically tangible that one can grasp, feel, smell and see.
I cannot quite accept that all the amazing souls who work for Unbound are simply 'doing their job'. In such a process as this there must also be a large helping of insight, inspiration, intuition, and belief to go alongside the knowledge, capability, experience, and dedication to very hard work... a touch of genius indeed.
Soon I will be able to hold the finished printed copy of 'Merry Midwinter' in my hands - it will be real to everyone and not just a dream inside my head. I cannot tell you just how that feels!
