Proof is in my hands!

Chapter One

I felt relieved to actually hold the printed proof of The House in the Old Wood when it arrived today.

It seemed like an odd response. Happy or proud would have made sense. Excited even. But relieved?

Perhaps it’s because it’s taken a lot of work to get to this point. Writing was the easy, fun part. Editing and proofreading were not that bad either, at least not to me. The cover was a mystery, and I’m glad someone took care of that for me.

You know what was hardest? The formatting.

I wanted to be sure it looked just like a book is supposed to look. And that took a lot of work. But I think it was worth it in the end. It looks like a book.

So I’ve approved it for printing, and the paperback version should be available on in five to seven days. And I expect to have some printed copies for sale myself around the first of June.

OK, now I’m getting excited.
