Stellar Reclamation...It's finally here!!

Can you believe it?!

Let me tell you, I had heart palpitations the night I clicked "publish" for Kindle, CreateSpace, and Smashwords. As I've mentioned before, this has been a huge learning experience. I'll be better prepared (hopefully) for the next book.

Stellar Reclamation may be sold in the General Market, but it's safe for young readers. It teaches daily lessons - respect for others and yourself, hope, forgiveness, etc.

Check it out!! :)

If you wouldn't mind, please leave a review. Thanks!!

Keep writing!!!

Update on Stellar Reclamation

Stellar Reclamation (MG Sci-fi) is almost ready!!

So much has been going on, and I'm sorry for not keeping up.

Here's the update.

I'm using CreateSpace for my very first self-publishing experience. Let me tell you, it is a huge learning experience. I have shed some serious tears over using their Custom Cover Service. The staff has been extremely helpful, but we've had some communication issues that cost me. :( BUT! (insert huge sigh of relief) We worked it out and I have approved the final cover.

Formatting was (still is) harder than I thought it would be. I had struggled to format the page numbers. I must give a shout out to all of my friends that tried to help me. Even though it wasn't perfect, we had them starting on the correct page. Things weren't looking the way I wanted, so I actually found that CreateSpace had templates. Thank you!! I still have some tweaking to do, but the formatting looks a lot better. I've uploaded a new PDF and now wait for them to send me a third proof.

I am praying this first book will be ready within the next two weeks. The Kindle version is good to go. After I get the paperback finalized, I will work on uploading it to Smashwords. And then...all versions will be released.

When the time comes for me to get my second book ready (actually should be now), I will be better prepared.

Thank you, Lord, for all of the resources available to writers.

Keep writing.
