Yes, I am. I can’t blame you if you don’t believe it. It has taken so long from the start of this journey of dreaming about getting published to being close enough I can smell it.
Some people take a very linear route: from idea to outline to manuscript. That has not been my path, partly due to inexperience, partly to distraction.
Even now, it is NOT the novel I am wrapping up. That manuscript is next. It is a novella, about 10,000 words, called Strange. The cover art is done. The final edit is a week from being complete. Formatting the manuscript is next, then off to the publisher, Acorn Book Services.
I am getting close to achieving the dream. Very, very close.
