Getting Ready to Launch

Who knew getting one little book ready for release is such a complicated process? I just signed off on my new book jacket (snazzy, huh?) and the final proof of my novel. My publisher made me read the entire book every time I made corrections. Every time I read it, I wanted to change more things. I was getting to the point where I wanted to rewrite whole chapters, and I knew that I would never be completely satisfied with my writing. So, I changed what I thought was troublesome or mechanically incorrect and let it finally go to print. Big launch party coming March 2. Shoot me an email if you want an invite. The more the merrier!
