Well, I said yesterday I’d update you all when my files were approved by CreateSpace, and they have now been approved. (It actually happened yesterday afternoon, but I didn’t have time to post an update).
What now? More waiting! I was able to look at a digital proof and even a 3D digital model of my book, but CreateSpace recommends that authors that are new to working with them get a print proof before approving their book for distribution. I thought this was a good idea so I ordered a print proof. It should be here by next Monday. I can hardly wait!
But wait I must, and maybe pray that it will get here earlier.
This book is just the first to be published by my new company, John 14:6 Publications. I already have the next book of poetry partially drafted and organized. And I have a daily devotional planned after that. So I guess I better get used to waiting because there is a lot of that in the publishing business, even if you self-publish through CreateSpace and Amazon.
I’ll let you all know when the book is available for purchase, which will hopefully be some time next week.
I’m just so excited! I know the poetry God helped me write is going to be such a blessing to others, so it’s hard to wait for it to be ready. But if I’ve learned anything about God over the years, He has a plan and timeframe for everything, and it’s often much different than my plan and timeframe.
And so I learn patience. I could definitely use a little more of that.
