We're getting closer! I submitted the final manuscript files to the publisher this morning. Over the next two weeks they will review the files, perform a basic copy edit (punctuation, grammar & such) and then let me know if everything is still in good shape. They will also create the front & back cover. Once everything is in good shape, it will go to the printer. This is getting exciting! :>)
