Pushing the button

Earlier this month I made a decision that I would declare myself done with editing and have Arrival of the Traveler, Waldgrave Part 1, published by August 20th. So this evening, after going through and thinking about all the things I have an urge to double check, and an editor telling me I'm being too particular and the book is ready, I got over myself and pushed the button.

How does this end? I have no idea. I guess this is when I cross my fingers and hope for the best...

And now on to editing the next book.

Screw you, auto-indent

Today I spent nearly three hours just reformatting stuff that went back and forth between Word and Google Docs so that I could format correctly in Sigil. And I can now say that auto-indent is the most frustrating feature to ever grace any word processor on the planet. However, my formatting is now done, and all I need to do is plug in the finalized text. I am on track for an August 20th publishing, and much less nervous than I thought I would be.

I got one of my publishing accounts set up, and that is also ready to go except for the finalized book.

The best part of this week has been designing artwork for the books; not just the Waldgrave series, but other books that I have in the works right now. I would like to make book trailers, but so far the nitty-gritty of getting my ebooks formatted correctly has eaten up most of my time.
