OK! I submitted my manuscript with the cover to CreateSpace and it was accepted! This means it met their specs and can be published! Nevertheless, I still ordered a copy so I can check it out with a fine tooth comb before I give the go-ahead for publication. They told me some photos didn’t have enough dpi (dots per inch) so I don’t know how it’s going to look in print. The digital copy looked mighty fine, especially the front and back cover. Could I be there?
I tell you, if it’s good, I’m approving it PRONTO! I’ve asked that they send the book express mail so I don’t have to wait a week. Once it’s approved, things are gonna move fast–publicity, news articles, phone calls, book launch prep, room reservation, a ton of things. Kind of exciting!
Yet I have to admit that there’s a part of me that wants to turn back. Why? Fear of the unknown, I guess. But I’m not going to do it. Jazzed yet scared!
