Congratulations, It’s a Book
Now, this is exciting! This is the advanced reader copy of my new novel, which is used for those authors who have agreed to read the uncorrected proof, and to offer cover blurbs.
Up until this moment, the story was always just that: a story. It was my scratchings on a memo pad, or a Word document, or a pile of printer sheets bound with rubber bands. The first time you get the bound galley is the first time your story morphs into a book.
It’s suddenly that much closer to being real. To being out there, on shelves. In stores.
This is a big day.
